Similarly to The shoals this dives site is an adventure around the rest of the reef that keeps the Agios Demetrious shipwrecked.
Slightly deeper than its neighboring dive site, Orphurus has a small crater within the sea bed which creates overhangs all the way along the reef edge, great for spotting Moray Eels and Octopus. Octopi are cephalopod mollusks with a hard beak and a mouth at the centre point of four pairs of arms. They have neither internal nor external skeleton as other species of the group do. They use camouflage and displays to defend themselves against predators.
We meet at our comfortable and well equipped diving centre where our friendly and helpful PADI professionals will 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 one of our Cydive boats. The journey from the harbour to the site of Orphurus takes around 15 minutes by boat.
Once you have completed your dive you will be served complimentary fresh fruit and refreshments on the boat before returning to our diving centre where our PADI professionals will de-brief you and help you to complete your log books.
We provide free transfers from/to your hotel from all hotels in the Paphos area.
