Although diving centres have been in existence for more than 50 years in Croatia, there has been an explosion of interest in the last 10 years, and there are several dive centres on the island.

Nautica Hvar in Stari Grad offers a full range of diving experience. From beginners to experienced divers - even for kids, there is plenty of courses and packages to choose from.

Experienced divers are required to present proof of their qualifications and to sign a liability release. Written permission is required from parents for divers under 18, while anyone over 45 requires a doctor's certificate.
