EDI

I was born in Punat and left my home island Krk just for some shorter time. I have started diving as military diver for more than 25 years. I worked as fisherman so had one really special connection to the sea. After remounting my boat I started to work only with divers. This was already more than 15 years ago. I spent 90% of my life in or on water. Now with Oliga I can fulfil my biggest dream.

FIX

A ship is safe in harbor, but that’s not what ships are for. That’s why Oliga has Fix. He is the man at the helm. He also runs Oliga’s kitchen. The way he prepares squids and the potatoes no one can make. You’ll fall in love with his meals instantly. He’s a really big fan of airsoft so he spend every free moment on some airsoft field or takes care of his airsoft gun collection.

ANETT

Diving for me isn’t just a hobby but a big part of my life. Returning there where I always want to belong to and being part of that beautiful underwater world. I have started diving as I was 15 and however, I was amazed by the underwater world for forever. In 2006 I became a NAUI Divemaster (# 47383), in 2007 finished SSI OWI course (# 46619) and did one crossover to UEF OWSI (0162-H). I worked with divers also in Hungary and in Croatia. As Dive Center Manager I hope I can help you with all information and prepare the perfect vacation plan for your diving trip. You can contact me on Hungarian, English, German and Croatian language.

AN OLD LADY

My name is Oliga and I was build as a fisher boat. But in 2001 I have been rebuilt and since then I work more than 15 years successfully only as dive boat. Edi and Fix take really good care about me, and together with Anett we make a lot of fun and great adventures for all sea lovers. I am 14,5 m long, have 4,1 m in width and I can reach up to 9 knots thanks to my Sauer-Famous 180Ps motor. I have also some cool devices and stuff like GPS, Echolot, Radar, VHF-Funk, Bootsphone, Liferaft – DSB (for 25 people), DAN O2 system, First Aid Kit and safety tank. You can take a nap or sun bath at my lovely sundeck, you can also eat some delicious meals prepared by Fix down at the kitchen, I have toilette, of course, and dining room next to the kitchen in case of bad weather. You can be absolutely sure with me because I am checked every year by HRB.
