Luckily, our diving Centrex is in the town of Vrboska, in the middle of the island, which is off the ‘beaten track’ for the average ’party-goer’.

Being such, I expect Vrboska to be one of the safer places to be during this unfortunate episode.
Hygiene and safety at the diving Centrex considered a point of utmost importance before the virus, you can rest assured all equipment and surfaces are and will be clean and ready for use. Many more practices, old and new, will be employed to ensure you receive not only the best experience possible, but the safest experience possible.

Being so widely known as the diving Centrex for families and more to trust for fun, experience, and most of all safety, is not only a privilege, but a responsibility. We intend to continue to prove deserving of the faith our divers put in us, and to supersede it.

With regards your health and safety during diving and PADI courses

  • Our equipment is disinfected before and after diving by yourself. As such, you can be sure the equipment is cleaned regularly and to a high standard of safety. As always, we will supply the disinfectant and wash facilities.
  • During your dive holiday, you - and only you - will use the same set of equipment throughout. While you are not using the equipment, it will be stored in a numbered box, again only used by you.
  • As ever, any and all possible precautions will be taken to maximize diver safety.
  • The number of students per class will be restricted. Since dive theory is completed online and in advance, classroom sessions are not necessary.
  • Dive briefings will be conducted on the dive Centrex grounds, outdoors, as always, in fresh air by the sea. Not only does it allow for greater for social distancing, it’s more fun.
  • All our staff aare checked by us on a daily base with a non-contact infrared thermometer to check if there is no temperature rise.

With regards your health and safety and that of the local Croatian inhabitants during your stay:

Your holiday to Vrboska and the trip from your home country to Croatia

  • Vrboska and the beach front is a very wide bay. It is never as busy or as crowded as towns such as Dubrovnik or Split. Vrboska, once a sleepy fishing village, is a picturesque 15th century tranquil and free place to be.
  • The beach is big enough for all to find space.
  • The cafes, bars, and restaurants are plentiful, spacious, and rarely too busy even in the height of summer season.

General information

We know that your holiday is not just about diving but also the social environment, local events, a culture of a country, island and city are defining your choice where you wish to spend your holiday.

Vrboska is special because the village has been settled since the ancient time, founded in the 15th century, and it developed into a fisherman's village and later into a wonderful little town. It owes its charm to the typical Mediterranean popular architecture, the proud old town houses with characteristics of Gothic, renaissance and baroque style, the sacral spirit of the ancient church buildings.

You will have a great time with lovely people around and you'll enjoy the mediterranean food. After diving, you and your kids, if you are coming with your family, will experience and appreciate the relaxed unspoiled nature and the outdoor lifestyle in Vrboska and surroundings!
