    Dive Center services:

    This Dive Center meets the following specifications.

    The island of Krk, located in the Kvarner Bay in the north of Croatia, offers a variety of dive sites on the offshore, mostly uninhabited islands. The fishing village of Punat in the south of the island is idyllically situated and is home to one of Croatia’s largest marinas in Punat Bay.


    Flights from all international airports to Rijeka (RJK), which is located on the island. Rental cars are available at the airport. However, you can also reach the island comfortably by car in approx. 6 hours by car from Munich. The bridge that connects the island of Krk with the mainland is open 24/7 and free of charge.


    Croatia claims the lion's share of the eastern Adriatic coast for itself. Unexpected and exciting! Diving in Croatia is one of the best you can find in Europe.
    With its many islands, Croatia offers you a large selection of dive sites. There are around 1,000 of these islands in total. All of them await you with reefs, underwater caves and canyons.
    Croatia is particularly well-known among wreck diving fans. You can dive between shipwrecks from the First and Second World Wars at various locations. The island of Krk in the north of Croatia, for example, is literally surrounded by dive sites. From drop offs and wrecks to rocky reefs, there is something for everyone here.
    In the north of Croatia, Kvarner Bay is one of the most beautiful areas for diving in the Adriatic. It is a very close destination from Germany if you are looking for dives in warmer water. It is also ideal if you are traveling by car.
    Kvarner Bay is known for its amazing drop offs and rugged reefs. They are often overgrown with beautiful gorgonians. The coastline and the relatively shallow water create an underwater world with plenty of variety. All this makes diving in Kvarner Bay a great destination for your diving vacation!


    From 4**** hotels with all-inclusive to simple rooms, everything is available in Punat. At the local tourist agency (http://www.marina-tours.hr/deu.aspx), everyone is sure to find accommodation to suit their needs. The Hang-Loose-Diving team will be happy to help you with recommendations and bookings. Some recommended accommodations are also linked on the diving school's website (https://hang-loose-diving.de/angebote/).


    The family-run diving center Hang-Loose-Diving, run by Stephan Wybrecht & Berby Krägefsky, is located in the southern part of Punat, only about 50 meters from the sea in the second row in the Buka district. The base is equipped with a reception, shower/WC, compressor room with two compressors, outdoor terrace with washing tubs for personal diving equipment and a drying cage. The two powerful compressors ensure a sufficient supply of air even in the high season. Over 60 diving cylinders from 7l to 15l in steel (all with double valves) and aluminum as well as 20 complete sets of rental equipment are available at the base, plus an additional four complete sets for sidemount.


    The dives usually take place from the boat. We mainly dive the offshore islands of Plavnik, Kormati, Prvic and Cres. Drop offs are predominantly found here, which are suitable for all levels. However, shore, night and wreck dives are also carried out. The team caters to the individual wishes of the guests. In shallower reefs and near gorgonians, you can find all kinds of small marine life, such as seahorses and extra second-stages. Lobsters peek out of the rocks and scorpion fish hide camouflaged on the rocks. Shipwrecks are an excellent home for conger eels, spider crabs and blue-striped jumping crabs. You can see some fascinating corals while diving. There is also a lot of macro life. Nudibranchs are just as common as shrimps, crabs and giant starfish. Seahorses, Peter fish, conger eels, tuna, scorpion fish, octopus, lobster and sole provide variety. Even if it is rare, you also have the chance to see groupers and rays. Diving training ranges from introductory dives to diving instructor courses.
