“From birth, man carries the weight of gravity on his shoulders. He is bolted to earth. But man has only to sink beneath the surface and he is free.”
Jacques Yves Cousteau
Cousteau was right, under the surface you are free and this mesmerising freedom is called levitation. Diving
is not just an ordinary activity but it takes you to a completely different world, filled with magic that you have never seen before
. Being surrounded by clear and blue water/sea, it takes you into a space full of tranquility and peace.
Diving in Croatia
Croatia is becoming one of the most famous diving locations in the world, because of its rich history that is hidden beneath the sea and endemic species that can be found only in our sea. Wrecks, that Croatia abounds with, are the most popular diving locations because of easy access and great depth. Istria
is the perfect choice for fun divers
(those who can dive to wrecks up to 40m depth) and the southern part of Croatia
is more suitable for technical divers
(those who can dive to wrecks of more than 40m depth). The most popular wrecks
in Croatia are definitely the majestic wrecks of Baron Gautsch and Hans Schmidt
(max. 40m depth) on the western coast of Istria, close to the town of Rovinj and Porec. The Wreck Szent Istvan
(technical divers – 40+ m depth), in the middle part of the Adriatic Sea between the island of Cres and the town of Zadar. The plane wreck Boeing B-17
(tech diving) in the Dalmatian part of Croatia, close to the islands of Vis, Hvar, Brac and in front of the town of Split. There are so many popular diving locations in Croatia, to know more about them, visit DiveLux.

Love and passion for diving
started a new love story years ago, on a perfectly sunny day on the roof of a boat, while two young people were talking about an amazing dive they just had. The deal was done, they will be buddies on all dives. Together they discovered new diving spots, new places and admired species that were swimming around them. A year later, they were dreaming about how to show Croatian underwater magic
to the world and make the perfect diving vacation that every diver wishes for. The desire was to keep the vacation unforgettable from start to the finish, combined with diving, accommodation and the full experience of Croatian beauties under and above the surface.
After many hours, weeks and months “DiveLux
” was born, as an agency developed by a young couple with unlimited love for their passion – diving! DiveLux became a small family business that is committed to make diving vacation in Croatia unforgettable and unique. They are in cooperation with many diving centres along the Croatian coast to provide the best dives, as well as with the agency My Istria to provide the best accommodation. In short, DiveLux is here to make the work done for our customers. The lively and young DiveLux team is always available for questions that clients have, and they are more than happy to be at your disposal.
