Cydive was the first dive centre to achieve its ISO certification in Cyprus. ISO stands for International Organisation of Standardisation, and these are the governing body that set the standards for diving along with a whole catalogue of other things. As an ISO centre we have implemented and achieve all of the high standards which they have set for introductory dives, snorkelling excursions, dive education and guided dives. These standards are set to achieve a high quality of safety and service across the industry.

Own Boat Fleet
I’m Photos and I am the owner of Cydive. I have owned Cydive for 24 years, and designed and built the Cydive facilities that we use today!
You will often find me around the dive centre or as the Captain of Cydive II. I learnt to dive from a young age and still dive regularly for fun. My favourite dive site is Devil’s Head.
The topography is very interesting with a huge bowl and a large swim through. There are also lots of fish around the island.

IDC STAFF INSTRUCTOR
Hi, my name is Sophie, I am an IDC Staff Instructor and have been diving for 12 years. I am working towards my Master Instructor rating and hope to continue sharing my passion for the ocean with others. I love teaching kids to dive as they are so curious about the underwater world and everything they see amazes them! I recently took up underwater photography and am really enjoying learning about corals and marine life whether they’re big or small. My favourite dive site is Geronisos Island, this dive site has depths of 12,18 and 35m so there’s something for every level of diver. A huge swim cave offers great encrusted marine life and photo opportunities!
IDC STAFF INSTRUCTOR
Hi, I’m Pascal and I am a PADI IDC Staff Instructor. I am bilingual, speaking both English and Greek fluently which gives me the opportunity to share my passion with both locals and English speaking divers. I have been diving for nearly 12 years and still have the same passion as when I started. Diving gives me the escape from the every day life and takes me to a place of beauty and calmness. My favorite dive site is Manijin Island as it offers swim throughs and beautiful topography, not forgetting the variety of marine life. I love diving for fun both day and night as i get to experience all types of marine life. Teaching people how to dive and passing on my passion through that first breath underwater is why I love to do it everyday.

My favorite dive site is the MS Zenobia, a world famous wreck! I love wreck dives and Zenobia ticks all the boxes! The marine life here is unique and you often don’t find it at other sites. My plan is to continue my adventure and show everyone I dive with, the love I have for adventure and the ocean.
OPEN WATER SCUBA INSTRUCTOR
Hi, I’m Kris and I am a PADI OWSI from Hungary and this is my 4 years at Cydive after a short break. Previously I was working at Cydive as a Divemaster, guiding dives and assisting course. This season I am working towards my Master Scuba Diver Trainer certification and I’m exciting to start teaching courses. I first started diving in the UK on wrecks in the English Channel before heading to warmer waters. This year I hope to introduce more Hungarians to diving as well as furthering my experience teaching in English. I have many favourite dive sites around Cyprus but the Laboe has always been one that I love to dive. Laboe is a great deep dive that offers marine life big and small as well as easy access to the engine room!

MASTER SCUBA DIVER TRAINER
Hi, my name is Gérald aka Djay. I’m French and speak fluent English and Spanish. My love for scuba diving came when I did a PADI DSD 7 years ago in south of France. I am now a PADI Master Scuba Diver Trainer. For me every dive is a great dive as there is always something to discover underwater whether it’s marine wild life or geological formations like swim through’s or caves as well as amazing wrecks.. What I love the most is night diving and the amazing feeling I get when underwater in the dark and also because the same dive site reveals itself a totally different world when dove at night.
