Cyprus is home to the Zenobia shipwreck, known as one of the world's
most famous shipwrecks for sports and technical diving.

The Zenobia was a large and impressive Swedish ferry built only about a year before
it sunk. It is named after a Tadmor Queen from the days of the Roman Empire. The
ship set sail from Sweden to Syria with 104 trucks and trailers on board laden with
goods to sell in the Mediterranean and Middle East markets. During the voyage, a
balance system malfunction was discovered that caused the ship to lean on its side.
After a stop at the port of Piraeus and after it seemed that the fault had been repaired,
the ship continued on its voyage. On June 6, 1980, the Zenobia reached Larnaca, where
the captain recognized the problem again. This time, the pump computers could not
intervene in the process, so they evacuated the ship's crew for safety until they could
find a solution for the problem. The Zenobia had to dock about a mile from shore and
was not allowed to enter the port. During the night, the Zenobia sank and now lays at a
depth of 42 m. The side of the ship is located at a depth of 18 m, so all dives on this site
are considered and defined as deep dives.

Level: Suitable for experienced divers – advanced open water or more.
Depth: 18-42 m.

You can also go diving in Ayia Napa, known for its interesting underwater 
topography of caves and crevices in shallow waters.

What is there to see when diving in Cyprus?
In Cyprus main dives are carried out at the "Zenobia" shipwreck. A 172 meter
long and 23 meters wide ferry that sank in 1980 and lays on the seabed off the
coast of Larnaca at a depth of 42 meters. One dive to the shipwreck is not enough
and it is recommended to perform a series of 4 or 6 dives in order to be able to
see the entire ship and its main points of interest.

A day dive in the region of Ayia Napa is also recommended to see interesting
underwater topography of caves and crevices at shallow depths.

Marine life here includes schools of pelagic fish such as barracudas, tuna,
assorted grouper fish octopus and squid, miniature bristle worms and a variety
of other interesting creatures.


Is a diving vacation in the Mediterranean Sea recommended?
The answer is definitely YES! Sea conditions in this area of the Mediterranean Se
a differ from other regions. Those who love the Mediterranean and dive in Cyprus
will return home with lots of great memories, mainly due to the famous shipwreck,
considered one of the most interesting and exciting shipwreck dives in the world.
Vacations in the Mediterranean are relatively cheap and affordable. It is also a
recommended destination to include friends or family who are non-divers.


Is it recommended to dive with Nitrox?
It is definitely possible and recommended to dive with nitrox, since most of the dives are
between 18-30 meters deep. Sometimes nitrox tanks entail an additional cost of about €5
per tank. You can receive nitrox training and qualification during your vacation. We will be
happy to advise and assist in appropriate training venues, near your hotel, at a special price.


How are dives performed in Cyprus?
The Zenobia dive site is privately owned. All dive clubs and all divers are required to board
a large boat and sail together to the dive site and dive there together, therefore the site is busy
and can get a little 'congested'. As service providers, we searched for a solution to provide
divers with a more exclusive option via a small British managed dive club. Dives are carried
out in the morning before all the divers arrive and in the afternoon after the mass of divers
leave the site. After each dive the boat returns to the dive club where divers may rest before
the second dive, providing and essential advantage where divers can enjoy a fantastic dive
and the full intensity of this particular dive site.


What can non-divers enjoy in Cyprus?
Many divers choose Cyprus because they can enjoy a holiday with friends and family who
do not dive. Cyprus is a wonderful destination and one of European holidaymakers' favorite
resorts offering well-kept beaches, taverns, restaurants, bars cafés and historical sites.
Cyprus is classed as a leading holiday destination during the summer months.
