Wreck Diving in Cyprus

The Zenobia wreck is regularly voted as one of the best dives in the world, a 'top ten best wreck' in the world and the best dive in Europe.

A truly fantastic dive site which attracts thousands of divers to explore her every year. Dive her once and you will want to come back and dive the Zenobia again and again. Dive the wreck for a week and you would still not be able to see everything or do all the dives she has to offer.

Diving is available on the Zenobia for all experience levels and it is a great dive site to complete your Advanced Open Water course or a number of specialities including Deep, Wreck and Nitrox. It is also an ideal dive site to complete your technical diving courses and there are numerous technical diving routes both outside and inside the wreck. We use an excellent dive boat with 2 decks, toilets, shaded areas, seating and refreshments onboard. The Zenobia is always a great days diving and a great day out.

But the Zenobia is not the only wreck we have to dive here in Cyprus ! It is by far the very best but there are many more different wrecks to enjoy and explore across Cyprus.

In the west there is the Laboe, Achilleas and Vera K wrecks in the Paphos area with depths from 14 to 30 metres. Ideal for divers of all levels.

Off Limassol we regularly dive the two wrecks that form part of a large artificial reef and which are just 200m apart. The Lady Thetis and the Constandis wrecks are safe to penetrate and are at a depth of 19m and 24m. The marine life here is exceptional.

Further to the East of the island we then have the Alexandria and HMS Cricket, with the Alexandria located just a few hundred metres from the Zenobia. Then in the far east of the island lies the Liberty and Nemesis wrecks which were both sank to form further artificial reefs.

All 10 wrecks are excellent dives and form the basis for most of the wreck diving in Cyprus.
