MS Zenobia

The most famous dive site in Cyprus and one of the top ten wreck dives in the world the MS Zenobia is not to be missed when diving in Cyprus. A 178m long cargo ship that sunk in 1980 complete with 104 fully loaded trucks and other large vehicles with an estimated worth of $200 million! Multiple dives are recommended in order to take in all this wreck has to offer.

 

The top of the wreck is at 16m and the bottom rests at 42m although the dive site is mainly aimed at intermediate level divers, less experienced divers can also dive the top part of the wreck. Visibility is good, the water is warm and there is hardly any current. What else can a diver ask for?! Experienced wreck divers and technical divers can penetrate the wreck through one of 10 different routes which have been previously explored by the local dive guides.

 

There is a large variety of fish life that surround the wreck such as barracudas and groupers as well as tiny nudibranchs laying peacefully on the wreck hull. The cargo has never been salvaged and are all there lying on the sea bed awaiting divers' eager eyes. Both the upper and middle cargo decks are also full of awesome things to see such as bomags, forklifts and the Zenobia’s only car!
