Dear fellow divers,
We are Peter and Laszlo the new owners of Najada, your hosts.
It is a great honor to become part of such an excellent diving family and we are proudly taking over Anna&Kurt’s legacy, what they have built throughout the last 20 years. We are thankful to the team Ane, Leo, Boris,Mihovil for continuing with us in this joyful diving journey and we are welcoming you at our Najada Center – we are here for your service to make your stay unforgettable.

Due to our advanced age – Anna & Kurt, the founders of Najada – we have retired from ownership and management on March 5, 2024. We would like to thank all our loyal divers, staff, business partners and friends for the past wonderful 20 years in Murter. We will continue to support Peter and Lazlo with our experience and we will join you for a “deco beer” or a dive.
We are very happy that the new owners immediately asked, if the team could stay. Without the commitment and support that our colleagues have shown over the years, Najada would certainly not be, what it is today. We wish you all the very best for the future!
Anna & Kurt
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 17 years.
MIHOVIL, is our youngest SSI instructor. He did an internship with us in 2021 and was already then a skilled captain. Many of our guests have enjoyed the private guiding of Mihovil. Besides Croatian, Mihovil speaks fluent English.
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.

ANE, is responsible for all the administration. She takes care of the check-in and check-out of our guests and is always available for questions.
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.
Benjamin is a CMAS & SSI Instructor. He has been freelancing with us almost 10 years and knows the routines very well. Benjamin is German and speaks also fluent English.
SIGRID – our long-term freelance instructor. Especially the high season, with many German speaking families, would be challenging without Sigrid. Since 2017 Sigrid has opened her own dive center, offering cooperation services in organizing dive trips combined with education.

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.
