OUR TEAM

ANNA opened the dive center in November 2002 and is still each day engaged in the daily business. You might not see her always in a dive suit, but you find her (at the latest) for apres-dive chat. While the staff needs a break, Anna is diving and driving.
LEO, SSI Instructor Trainer (new!), is the technical genius: firstly he is a trimix instructor and rebreather diver, secondly he is also able to fix and repair almost anything! Besides teaching, guiding and driving our boats, he is in charge of our regulator maintenance. Leo has been with Najada more than 15 years and is representing the management in absence of Anna.
BORIS takes care of the logistics. Based on a daily disposition list, it is the duty of Boris to make sure, that correct gear is packed on the correct boat. Moreover, as a licensed Gas Blender Boris is not only filling our daily compressed air tanks, but also Nitrox and Trimix mixes.
DINO is our young divemaster. He came to us in 2021. Dino speaks Croatian, Bosnian and also fluent English. He is an experienced captain and has extensive knowledge with compressors. Additionally Dino is an avid climber and has been cleaning skyscraper windows during the winter .
KURT. What would the briefing be without the dive site map made by Kurt! As a keen photographer and skilled artist, Kurt has designed over the years not only the dive site maps, but also produced booklets, that our divers enjoy studying over a “deco-beer”. In order to make the formalties easier by check-in, Kurt designed a dive center management program, where we find all key data. The latest development is a more modern homepage.
JERE, a very experienced captain. You can be sure, that you do not have to swim miles to the dive spot. Some of our repeater guests might remember Jere from some years back (with Najada 2007-2012), where his famous answer to the question “Where are we diving?” was “na-ja-da” (which if I translate it into English “well, over there” is not so funny, but the German speakers are laughing.) Jere is a Cmas instructor, trimix diver and PADI DM. Jere is certainly skilled in gas blending.
SIGRID – our long-term freelance instructor. Especially the Boat Show in Düsseldorf would be challenging without Sigrid. Since 2017 Sigrid has opened her own dive center, offering cooperation services in organizing dive trips combined with education.
ACO, is our new instructor. He did an internship with us in 2021 and decided to come back after passing the PADI instructor exam in Greece. Aco speaks besides Serbian, fluent English and Croatian and has basic knowledge of French. He is very sporty and enjoys going for long walks with Mephista.
MEPHISTA: The new dive center dog, this time a girl. Born in December 2020, so still very young and already the declared favorite of all dive guests. Like her predecessor, she loves to play with other dogs..

OUR BOATS

We bought NAJADA IV in August 2009. She is 9 m long, can transport up to 10 divers (incl. crew) and has a 330 hp Volvo diesel engine. The top speed is about 40 ktn (approx. 74 km/h). Above all, if we do not exploit this top speed in day-to-day operations, it represents a considerable safety gain in an emergency case.
NAJADA IV is equipped with a marine toilet.
NAJADA III is 9 m long and has a 260 hp engine. She takes 8 divers (incl. crew) with equipment for 2 dives. Originally the boat was built for the coast guard, as a result NAJADA III proves its stability in extremely bad weather and high waves. Usually we drive with a cruising speed of 20 knots and bring our guests quickly to distant dive sites. In an emergency, where every minute counts, she can reach a speed of 28 knots (approx. 52 km/h).
NAJADA III is equipped with a marine toilet.
