2 tank – Wreck of White Star & Achilleas

March 28 @ 8:30 am - 1:00 pm


Wreck of White Star

The White Star previously known as Ivana Ivanova was part of the Russian commercial fishing fleet in the Black Sea. She sank on February 18th 2007 during her transportation to Limassol when her temporary repairs slowly came undone. At the time of sinking you were able to enter the wreck to explore the engines and saloon area. However Since 2007 the sea storms have taken their toll on this beautiful wreck demolishing the bow section and scattering it along the sea bed. There is now no access to enter the wreck meaning we can no longer explore the inside of the wreck.

Take a look at this dive site!


Achilleas is situation just 10 minutes away from Paphos Harbour just past the lighthouse. The Greek vessel which exploded and sank in 1975 and now sits on a sandy bottom at 12m. This wreck is perfect for those finishing their Scuba Diver or Open Water course. It provides plenty to see whilst the sand and rock bottom cant be stirred up decreasing the visibility.

The wreck broke up into 3 main sections when it exploded. Of the 3 sections, the most popular is the bronze propeller on the upturned stern and the winch. Although the stern section is upturned the side is broken open exposing the engine. The engine is still fully intact and provides shelter for a range of marine life including octopus.  Within the winch section there is often a moray eel hiding!

We will meet at our well-equipped diving centre in Paphos Harbour. Our friendly and helpful PADI professionals will help you with equipment and begin with an interesting and informative dive briefing. 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.

Once everyone is ready we will take a short walk to the Paphos harbour where we will board Cydive II. The journey from the harbour to the sites of Vera K and Amphora Caves takes around 10 minutes by boat.

Complimentary fresh fruit and refreshments will be served on the boat before returning to the harbour. Back at the dive centre our PADI professionals will de-brief you and help you to complete your logbooks.

Meeting time at Cydive: 08:30

Return time: 14:00 approximately

Suitable for: All qualified divers
