Big Steps
Paphos

Big Steps

Big Steps is East of Paphos Harbour heading towards the airport where the reef runs directly parallel to the shore.

Big Steps was also part of a recent clean up project, due to its location lost fishing nets can get caught around the rocks. We try to clean this site on a regular basis (2-3 times a year) to make sure that it is net free and marine life doesn’t become entangled.

For this dive a minimum certification level of Advanced Open Water  is required. 

If your last dive was more than 1 year ago then you will be required to complete a refresher before joining any of our scheduled dives.

Beginning at 16m and stepping down gently down to 28m, this dive is a great multilevel dive.

As the name suggests, there are a variety of different routes you can take on this dive depending on the depth of dive that you want.

Big Steps

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 Big Steps takes around 5 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 debrief you and help you to complete your logbooks.

Descend down the anchor line and begin your dive at  a large meadow of Neptune and Poseidon grass, here you will find many Painted Comber.

Towards the deepest section of this dive there is a large sandy patch which leads nicely into a small valley. Inside this valley there is a series of swim throughs one of which is covered in pink Peyssinelia. As you exit the valley there is a large archway at around 16m.

Painted Comber can be identified by their zebra printed body and bright yellow tails. These fish can grow upto 35 cm long and are one of a few fish that eat small scorpion fish!
