Limassol, the city on the southern coast of Cyprus, is known for its beaches, fascinating sights, warm transparent sea, and beautiful nature. And that’s great, but for divers, the most attractive are sunken ships that are located not so far from the sea surface, as well as a variety of underwater flora and fauna. This is one of the most magnetic places on the planet for those who enjoy diving and want to have an awesome time under water. A trip to Limassol promises excellent conditions for diving.

Our experienced instructors will conduct with you all the necessary training, will teach breathing practices and help you learn or practice any skills in freediving. After the preparatory breathing exercises and stretching on the beach, we are ready for a training dives. Dives are conducted into several stages.
On the first day, dives will be made not far from the coast on relative shallow depth.
Then, on the second day, we will take the boat farther from the coast in order to get a better depth. The attractiveness of Cyprus for divers is difficult to overestimate - because over the centuries, for various reasons, many ships sank here and today the coastal underwater world has turned into an amazing space, enchanting the mysterious silhouettes of ships and attracting divers with its mystical secrets and indescribable beauty.
During the trip, one of the most interesting places to visit is the Zenobia ferry that sank in 1980 - the third day is dedicated to this journey. This is one of the most intriguing and mysterious sights in Cyprus, the fate of which is often compared with the fate of Titanic. The Swedish cargo ferry, for reasons that are still unclear, has sunk and is now lying at the bottom of Larnaca Bay. Zenobia lies at the bottom about 42 meters from the surface of the water - the ferry is among the ten best wreck diving sites in the world. Of course, divers from all over the world are eager to visit this place and see it with their own eyes.
Zenobia is available for diving for novice divers, but also an interesting challenge for experienced divers. Along the starboard side, diving to a depth of up to 16 meters is possible. More difficult is to dive inside the upper car deck and accommodation block. And the lower car deck and engine room are available only for very experienced divers and are absolutely not recommended for beginners.
