Diving In Cyprus

Diving in Cyprus offers such a fantastic range of diving to suit all levels of experience and has excellent conditions for dive courses too.

For beginners Cyprus offers warm, clear and safe waters to fully experience the underwater world for the first time. For those wishing to qualify as a diver the open water course is the perfect entry level course and Cyprus has the perfect diving environment in which to complete it. For those looking to develop their diving further the advanced open water course is designed to do just that and is also an opportunity to dive the world famous Zenobia wreck on the qualifying dives.

Diving courses including the rescue course and speciality courses, including Deep and Nitrox, are also very popular in Cyprus due to the range of different dives available here.

Cyprus diving offers everything from shore dives, caverns, swim throughs, wall diving, wreck diving, reefs, deep diving to technical diving and has more marine life than people give it credit for.
