Along with the diving company of Nautica, in 1998 there was set up an association working in favour of disabled divers and candidate divers. This is a non-profit organisation, fulfilling the standards of certifying agency HSA (Handicapped Scuba Association), established in USA and active in 45 countries all over the world. One of the founders of the association is now the only HSA Course Director in Poland, responsible for the instructors’ training. The staff of the association consists of the volunteers, among which many are or were working as dive guides or instructors of Nautica Hvar Dive Centre. Through years the association “Nautica” has been organising confined water trainings, which are held every week in one of the swimming pools in Kraków, Poland.
