MAX DEPTH 5-40M – BOAT DIVE- REEF DIVE- SCUBA DIVER CERTIFICATION+
Situated on the North Coast of Paphos within the Akamas Peninsula. This is a fantastic day out for those looking for a chance to relax and enjoy the beauty of nature. Crystal clear waters and the amazing landscape of the green mountains that slip into the sea, make it an excellent place to enjoy diving.
During this day trip you will stop in 3 beautiful locations for diving and snorkelling!
This day trip begins at our dive centre in Paphos, where you will be allocated all of the equipment you need for the day whether that’s a mask and snorkel or full diving equipment. Once everyone is ready you will be driven to Latchi either on a coach or in the Cydive minibus’. The journey to Latchi take around 45 minutes to an hour and includes spectacular views of the mountain, hillsides and local villages.
Once you arrive in Latchi you will board our custom built Cydive boat, which offers plenty of space for all divers and snorkelers as well as areas of sun and shade. Our team will give a boat safety briefing including all the information you need to know!
The first stop of the day is St George Island also known to locals as Kakoskali.
This island offers incredible diving and great snorkeling for all ages, there is something for everyone!
St George Island has an amazing wall feature, reaching from the seabed almost to the surface! The wall is covered in beautifully coloured algaes and corals. Here you will be able to find dotted nudibranch, slipper lobster and possibly moray eels hiding in the wall. The shallows are full of gullies and swim through for you to explore. During the warmer month you can often find a green turtle swimming amongst the sea grass. Due to the shelter the shallows provide you can often find huge schools of juvenile fish, which is great for those wanting to snorkel!
Once everyone is back on the boat we will head to our next location, Blue Lagoon.
The blue lagoon offers incredible crystal clear waters, and is surrounded by luscious green landscapes. Grab your mask and snorkel and dive into the water to explore everything the blue lagoon has to offer! During this stop, a selection of local nibbles and refreshments will be provided. Spend just short of two hours swimming or basking in the sun before heading to our next location.
The final location of the day will vary between Fontana Amorosa and Amphitheatre depending on weather conditions.
Fontana Amorosa meaning ‘the fountain of love’ is speculated to be where Aphrodite and her lovers would spend time. This dive site is located just 5 minutes outside of the Blue Lagoon. The walls of the rock reefs form gullies leading the way to the deepest section of this dive. The numerous holes and crevasses within the reef create the perfect environment for Dusky Grouper and Octopus.
Amphitheatre is located in the small part of Chrysochou bay, this dive site has a great underwater topography made up of rock reefs, seagrass meadows and swim throughs. The bay offers great protection against the wind and waves for perfect snorkeling and swimming conditions.
After the final stop we will head back to Latchi Harbour before returning to Paphos. On the way back be sure to ask to stop off on the top of the cliff for a picture of the whole of Paphos.
This day trip is perfect for those wanting to spend the day on the boat and in the water exploring the Akamas Peninsula.
Life jackets and swim floats are available.
