From Cydive will walk down to Paphos Harbour where will we board our very own custom dive boat, Cydive II! The journey to Jubilee Shoals takes about 1-1.5 hours depending sea conditions. This is a great time for you to get some sleep or to get some beautiful pictures of the Cyprus coastline. Once the boat is anchored you will get into your suit and your dive guide will give you a briefing.
Dive around the pinnacle which erupts from the seabed at 50m!
The first dive of the day is the deepest and offers the chance to explore a huge cave! Begin this dive by descending down the pinnacle starting at 18m towards the entrance of a large cave. The entrance of this cave is approximately 3m tall and 5m wide. This cave begins at 32 meters and is over 30 meters long, covered in calciferous algae! You will definitely want to bring your torch for this one as a twist in the cave means that the exit is hidden upon entry. Within this cave there is an abundance of corals, algae’s and encrusted marine life. This is the perfect place for dotted nudibranch and slipper lobster to thrive. You will then exit this swim through at 38 meters, and begin to explore the outside of the pinnacle in a corkscrew formation.
After the first dive you will have a surface interval, if the water is calm and flat then you will stay at the dive site. If the water is a little bumpy then you will head into a nearby bay known as Melanda Beach. You will be provided with refreshments and nibbles before changing your cylinder and getting ready for a second dive.
During the second dive you will explore more of the pinnacle and have the chance to snap some incredible photos!
The marine life outside of the cave is just as diverse as the inside. You will often find green turtles, schools of amberjacks and nudibranch all within a few meters of each other! Jubilees pinnacles are absolutely huge so there is plenty to explore.
Due to the location of this dive sites there can be some strong currents either on the surface or all the way down to the depths. Depending on how strong the currents are these dives can be done as drift dives.
