INSTALLATIONS

Founded in 1993, VELLMARI is the top premium SSI Dive Center in Formentera. Impossible to miss with our two distinctly yellow dive boats docked at our doorstep, Vellmari is located just a few meters away from the ferry station in the port of La Savina. We are conveniently situated with hotels, shopping, restaurants, markets, car and scooter rentals all within walking distance.

State of the art facilities and installations are one of the many things that make VELLMARI stand out. Our two aluminum 12 pax dive boats designed specifically for your diving comfort and personalized groups. We also have personal lockers, showers, and changing rooms which are all located footsteps away from the dive boats. Allowing for a comfortable as well as efficient dive set up and break down procedures.

Then there is our top of the line gear, store and training facilities. Being a premium SSI & Mares Dive Center, we have all the latest and perfectly maintained rental gear. All of our regulators, BCDs, wetsuits and gear are always kept to the utmost standards. The classroom is thoughtfully designed with computers and tablets for students to be able to complete courses and review materials before going diving. With a projector and large screen TV, students and clients will enjoy all the benefits our center has to offer.

Need to fix your gear or make sure that our rental gear is kept in the best conditions? VELLMARI has its own service workshop, always keeping yours and our gear in perfect working conditions. We also have our own compressor room for both AIR and NITROX fills. With plenty of 12 and 15 liter dive tanks, we always have the gear you feel comfortable diving in. And yes, at VELLMARI there is no extra charge for NITROX fills. So if you are certified or want to get certified in NITROX, Vellmari is the dive center for you.

Last but certainly not least, is the most important piece of the puzzle is the staff. With the most professional, multilingual, and world renown dive instructors, VELLMARI has all the courses available to suit your diving needs and passions. Take a photography specialty course with our owner and National Geographic photographer, MANU SAN FELIX. Come do Europe’s largest shipwreck, the DON PEDRO, and get certified in wreck specialty diving which allows you to explore all the nooks and crannies of the Don Pedro.
