About STARFISH

Vrsar is an old and picturesque fishing village on the west Istrian coast and it is perfect for family holidays as well as for  holiday with your partner or friends. The most beautiful sunset walks, a rich culinary tradition, a lot of fun on local fests or in different bars and many sport activities is what Vrsar offers every day. Beside all that, Vrsar is an amazing destination for diving. Starfish Diving Center is located there since 1996 in the campsite “Porto Sole”, guided by Alexander, Miro and Wolfgang. It is just 25 meters away from the Adriatic sea and in 8 minutes walking distance from the center of Vrsar. Only a few meters away from the dive center there is the opportunity to buy refreshments and snacks in a beach bar.

dive boat starfish

For a comfortable, quick and safe journey to the dive sites we have the dive boat Starfish. Starfish is 13 m long, 4 m wide and it has 2 x 370 hp engines. It is specially prepared for dive trips and offers room for up to 25 divers. A roomy cabin, toilet, awning and a big diving platform provide the divers with comfort and a relaxed preparation for the dive. Moreover the boat is equipped with sonic depth-finder, GPS satellite navigation, UHF-radio, 2 oxygen supply systems and an emergency first aid kit. Every day we offer several trips with our boat Starfish. Beside the captain there is always one of our dive guides on board who will explain, in detailed briefings, the dive site and the boat.
Non divers are also welcome on board and can use the excursion for swimming and snorkeling.
