Diving center Puffer

Our diving center is situated in the hotel Istra on Red Island, near the city of Rovinj.

Every day we offer scuba diving trips generaly with one or two dives. 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. For a comfortable, quick and safe journey to the dive sites we have the dive boat "Puffer". Learn more...

About Red Island


Certainly one of the most beautiful of Rovinj's islands and by all means one of the biggest - with a size of 233.000 m2 and one of the most attractive ones is the Red Island which is located nearby Rovinj, only a 15 minute boat-trip away. It is made up of two little islands, St. Andrew and Maskin, which are connected. Learn more...
