Our story

Our story begins in 2006., when a hobby became a true calling for the center's founder, Anton Klenovar, known by everyone as Toni. Searching for a way to bring some tranquility to his life, he discovered diving and after a while, decided to share his love for diving with others. His diving experience, supported with young forces will ensure your diving journey to be spectacular.

 

Our goal is to convey the pleasure of diving to everyone who is willing to explore what's hiding beneath the sea surface.

 

Why the name "Ceti Sub"?

The prefix sub means "below", so as a diving center, it made sense to include it in the name.

Besides, we literally are "below Ceti", as the constellation follows us on our aquatic adventures!

In Ancient Greek, kētŏs (plural kētē), later Latinized as cetus (pl. ceti), is any huge sea creature or sea monster. It is most strongly associated with Cetus the sea-monster, who was slain by Perseus as he saved the princess Andromeda from Poseidon's wrath.

Fun fact!

 

Ceti were often depicted as serpentine fish in Greek art, hence the idea for our logo.

Cetus is also the name of a constellation.
It is in the middle of "The Sea" recognized by mythologists, a set of water-associated constellations, its other members being Eridanus, Pisces, Piscis Austrinus and Aquarius.

Allow Ceti to guide you on your diving journey, and you'll always have some fun stories to tell!

A version of Cetus, like the one from the animated movie "Sinbad: Legend of the Seven Seas"
