Third time to Croatia, second time with this dive operation.  Shark Dive
Center was ery supportive of what our group wanted to do and very
responsive to our unexpected needs.  Fully equipped shop.  We brought our
own equipment, to include cylinders, but were able to use the shop's for
day trip w/two dives.  Shop also arranged lunch on board--quite tasty!! 
And plenty of food for little $$$.  NITROX readily available for 2
Euros/cyliner (about $2.60/tank).  Divemaster briefed all NITROX divers,
and oversaw checking of %.  Very safety conscious.  Dive boat was not a
dive boat, but a tour boat; in spite of that it worked for our large (20)
group.  Lots of cover on deck, plenty of room, easy to get back on board. 
Center has other dive boats, too.  Dived on three wrecks each at about 40
meters; plus two walls.  Diagrams of each dive are on the website.  Highly
recommend this dive operation located in Medulin, near Pula, Croatia. 
Email;  This is a tourist area so
there is plenty to do during surface intervals.  Good food, sightseeing,
transportation.  Exchange rate is about $1 = 5+ Kuna, but you can look
around for the best deal.  Roman colosseum in Pula isn't as grand as the
one in Rome, but worth a visit.  Medulin/Pula is in NW Croatia, just across
the Adriatic Sea from Venice.  English, German and Italian spoken fairly
well here.  There's an airport in Pula.
