Dive Professional of the Month: Dilara Wilkins

5 out of 5 Stars (based on 16 Reviews)

Location: London, England

Dive Center: The London IDC

Level: PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor

Her Profile:

What Dilara says about herself:

“I have been a passionate scuba diver my entire adult life. Right from my first discover dive I decided to become an instructor. My motivation and love of the dive has taken over. I actively follow developments in the industry, new practices and the latest gadgets. I feel the drive to do this because scuba is an ever-evolving industry so keeping up not only improves my dives but also the people I lead. I have been lucky enough to dive in 5 beautiful countries and if you have any stories I would love to hear them.”

The rateyourdive users can warmly recommend her:

  • I wanted to do it for long time, but I did not dare to dive till I’ve met with Dilara. She made me relax with her positive energy and sincereness. Then all questions, that made me worry, were gone. Thanks to her smiling face, patience and great diving experience. (Gülden Yücel)
  • I hadn’t dived in years and Dilara was great at helping me get back in the groove. She explained everything in detail before we went on the dive so I felt confident about our underwater communication. She kept it fun and light hearted but I felt very safe. It was a beautiful experience and I’d dive with her again anytime!! (Sirena)
  • Diving was something I wanted to do for many years but thought at my age, 62, it was a bit late. As my instructor Dilara was magic, she made me feel safe, was patient with my mistakes and altogether made it a memorable experience. I really look forward to diving with her again and would choose her for any more courses I may do. BTW my wife dived with her as well and she really enjoyed the experience. If you are looking for an instructor, look no further.

  • I became an OWD in 5 amazing days. The Quality of the training always comes first. The dive center and especially Léon deserve five seastars! (Fridolin Heyer)

Dive Center of the Month: Priscapac DC

5 out of 5 Stars (based on 6 Reviews)

Location: Priscapac, Croatia

Their profile:

Priscapac Dive Center is SDI and TDI certified and situated, like the name says, on the Croatian peninsula of Priscapac. The location provides an easy access to the water for diving. Experienced divers enjoy starting their dives to 35 meters straight away from the shore. The Dive Center offers boat dives as well. For example, to the most famous Dive Site around: “Blue hole”, which is popular for scuba- and freedivers as well as snorkelers.

The rateyourdive users recommend that Dive Center:

  • DC with a friendly family atmosphere. Staff is very competent. Good choice of diverse locations that can be reached by a short boat ride but there is also a possibility of shore and night dives. (Dusan)
  • Diving center with great approach – safety is on first place. Very nice shore and boat dive locations. We are visiting them for last seven years. Here you are welcome with the whole family – as a certified diver or if you just want to try diving or as a visitor only. (Andrea)
  • We attended discovery dive with kids. Entrance into the water was easy accessible. Water was so clear, we all saw lot of fish. Instructors were so great, showing us octopus, even eel. (Martonkova)
