On the sandy sea bed lies the wreck of the Greek vessel which mysteriously exploded and sank in 1975.
There are 3 main sections of the wreck to visit, the most popular being the bronze propeller on the upturned stern section and the winch.
With so many hiding places on this dive site we often see Octopus and Moray Eel hidden in the winch and upturned bow section!
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.
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 debrief you and help you to complete your logbooks.
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 Achilleas takes around 15 minutes by boat.

I AM A QUALIFIED DIVER BUT HAVE NOT DIVED FOR OVER A YEAR. WILL I NEED TO DO A REFRESHER DIVE FIRST?
As a qualified diver, you know that in scuba diving, safety comes first! That’s why we recommend our guests complete the refresher program (€55) which is available every day. This program includes a proper dive in the sea, but with some preparation before the dive. Your dive guide will give you a thorough briefing to remind you of all the important information and you will practice necessary skills in the shallow water area. This will help you to brush up your skills in a shallow water to avoid any complications for future dives. After this you will enjoy a nice and easy dive at a location of archaeological interest.
If you have no diving qualification, but would like to try scuba diving you are welcome to join us on the Discover Scuba Diving program. This is available every day and the cost of the program is €65 per person. You can find more details about this program here: http://www.cydive.com/product/beginner-discover-scuba-diving/
