Dive Trips

 

No matter if you have just gained your PADI Open Water Certificate or you are a professional diver with over 500 dives, when you choose to scuba dive with Cyprus Diving Adventures then you can expect a truly personalized and tailored experience.

 

 

Our diving trips operate daily, year-round, but we purposefully avoid rigid schedules. Instead, we remain flexible so that we can carefully select dive sites based on weather conditions, sea conditions and specific customer requirements. We ensure that guided diving groups remain small and are divided according to diving experience where possible. Moreover, there are no strict time limits during our dives – we dive for as long as the air in our cylinders lasts.

 

 

The absence of a tight schedule on our diving trips cultivates a chilled out, relaxed atmosphere. This contributes significantly to the exceptional quality and individuality of the scuba diving experience you’ll encounter with Cyprus Diving Adventures. 

 

 

Although we are probably the only dive centre on top of a hill, our central location in Pissouri Village means that we are ideally situated to undertake dives all over Cyprus. Whether this be shore dives off the the Paphos (Western) or Aiya Napa (Eastern) coast lines; boat dives to clear waters of St Georges Island (North) or the wrecks off Limassol and Larnaca (South) then we can accommodate.

 

 

Want to take some underwater photographs but don’t have a suitable camera? Then let us know as we have a range of rental cameras for video and photographic needs. 

 

 

Don’t have diving insurance? Again please let us know and we can arrange so that you have peace of mind during your trip.

 

Please contact us and let us know where you would like to have your Cyprus Diving Adventure.
