Zenobia

The wreck of MS Zenobia is a world famous wreck, ranked as one of the 10 best wreck dives in the world. She lies between 16 and 42 metres of water, just 1400 meters from the shores of Larnaca. This 172 metre long Swedish Ro-Ro ferry sank on her maiden voyage in 1980 following computer malfunctions in her ballast system. She lies on her port side with 108 articulated lorries. Some are on the lorry deck, and some in the cargo hold.

We normally dive around the stern and propeller on the first dive, and on the second dive we head towards the bow where we do 2 penetration dives, one in the bridge, and one in the galley, before heading to the bow. The windows have been removed to allow easy entrance and exit.

To dive the Zenobia you must hold a minimum PADI Advanced Open Water Diver or have an alternative diving certificate allowing you to dive to 30 meters.

There is more sea-life on the Zenobia than any other dive site in Cyprus. Large sea bream and groupers are “de rigueur” on the Zen, as she is affectionately called. Along with barracuda, moray eel, grey triggerfish, amberjacks, and a myriad other sealife. For real excitement the occasional turtle will visit the decks.

We will collect you from your hotel and bring you to our comfortable and well equipped diving centre for 07:00 to prepare any kit you may need. You will then travel around 90 minutes by road to the Larnaca Marina to board the Queen Zenobia, a large two-hull fireboat converted to a two-deck dive boat.

Unless you have your own diving gear, all equipment is supplied by us. We spend a few minutes checking your sizes and will fit you with the suitable gear. All of our diving equipment is well maintained and serviced regularly to ensure your safety and comfort. Due to the depth of the dive we supply 15 litre steel tanks.

In between dives there will be snacks, coffee and tea. A delicious and freshly prepared BBQ will be waiting for you at the end of the second dive. We provide free transfers from/to your hotel from all hotels in the Pafos area.
