Activity description

If you've always wanted to try scuba diving, this is your chance! Don't miss this fun-filled beginner scuba excursion in Split, Croatia! Taking part in this session is a great way to decide whether or not you want to continue on your scuba diving journey towards Open Water Diver Certification. 

The experience begins once you've arrived at the Diving Centre, where you'll be greeted by your certified instructor and the amazing Open Water staff. You and your group will then watch an introductory safety and scuba diving theory video. Once this has been completed, it's time to put on your scuba diving gear and head to the 'Home Reef Diving Site' located in front of the Diving Centre, which is conveniently situated in the Radisson Blu Resort.

This picturesque bay is both shallow and sheltered with no currents or waves, just amazing crystal-clear water and an abundance of aquatic life! After you've practised underwater breathing in shallow water, you'll experience the thrill of diving and exploring the Adriatic Sea, among schools of fish, octopus, cuttlefish, and many more! In addition, the seabed is sandy and is dotted with many different small reefs. Perfect for underwater discovery! 

Please note that this activity is not a course, it is a beginner scuba diving session. At the end of this session, you will receive an SSI diploma certifying that you have tried scuba diving. However, it does not qualify you to dive by yourself or rent equipment. But if you've fallen in love with scuba diving after the excursion, this session counts as a training dive if you wish to enrol in the Open Water Diver Certification Course.

Make your dream a reality and book this beginner scuba diving session in Split today! Who knows, this may be the start of a lifelong passion!

I had an amazing experience scuba diving for the first time. The instructor was very helpful, explaining hand signals and guiding us perfectly. The added bonus was her taking lots of pictures, which I greatly appreciated. Overall, I highly recommend this unforgettable experience.

Premier plongée pour mes amis et moi même! Instructeurs au top (un jeu parlant français donc hyper pratique). Une plongée que l’on a tous adoré. Des photos en souvenir pour ne pas oublier ce moment ☺️

Nettes Diving Team, nur leider gab es keine Urkunde am Ende wie beschrieben, obwohl nochmal per Mail angefragt!

La plongée est incroyable, fatigante mais ça vaut vraiment le coup. On vous équipe, on vous donne les instructions et puis vous plongez pour nager avec les poissons.

It was exactly what we expected. We tried scuba diving for the first time, the introduction was short and neat and gave us all the information we needed beforehand. And then dive away.
