Diving in Cyprus, a Meditarreanean wreck divers dream

The Island of Cyprus is a paradise diving destination in the Mediterranean perfect for wreck and adventure lovers. It is home to one of the worlds largest wrecks, the MS Zenobia of which many an adventure is needed in order to explore all 178m of it!

It is 28m wide and rests at its deepest at 42m on the sea bottom. Alongside its heavy metal structure, you can find propellers and chimneys. Given that it was most definitely not empty when it sunk in 1980, the MS Zenobia held a substantial cargo of a little over 100 trucks! The outside of the wreck can be easily explored and observed, however venturing inside the wreck amongst its maze of passageways and bridges is reserved only for experienced and qualified wreck divers.

Besides the legendary wreck of the Zenobia, the local authorities in Cyprus have taken the initiative to recently sink other ships, although smaller in size they offer increased diving opportunities for the Islands dive visitors.

Some of these newly sunken wrecks include the Nemesis III trawler which was sunk in 2013, the Laboee, sunk in 2015, and near Limassol, a coastal shipping vesell called the Lady Thetis can be found. Another new wreck available to divers is a fishing boat called the Costandis. The beauty of these wrecks is that as they were sunk intentionally, they have been placed and secured at a depth of 20/-30m that allows easy access to almost all divers.

Divers will be further amazed by not only by the glint of metal beneath the waters surface but also of the many minerals to be seen on the Cypriot coast. Tours within the islands many caves and grottos such as Amphorae Cave are on offer for further exploration of this beautiful island.

The fact that Cyprus is within close proximity to the Red Sea in the Mediterranean means that as the marine life has gradually mixed with the tropical ‘alien’ wildlife, the Cypriot marine ecosystem has become very unique and full of vivid colors!

As for land tours, these are not to be missed and include religious monuments, monasteries, archaeological sites, and towns visits such as Lamaca and Nicosia. Get ready for a fun filled actioned packed diving holiday!
