Lofos

Lofos meaning ‘hill’ in Greek, is a scenic dive site around a pinnacle rock reef. Depending on whereabouts on this ‘hill’ you are depth varies with a minimum of 12m and maximum 17m.

For this dive a minimum certification level of Open Water Diver 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.

Lofos is a beautiful scenic dive with interesting rock formations and rock bottom, meaning this is great for newly certified divers to practice their buoyancy skills.

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 Lofos takes around 20 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.

After we anchor at the dive site we will descend down onto the reef at 10m, once all of the group is ready you will begin the dive.

We begin the dive by following the reef wall towards the swim through. On the way there be sure to keep an eye on the reef wall for octopus, moray eels and hermit crabs. The swim through at this site is wide and flooded with natural light with easy entry and exits. 

The deepest part of this dive is a large sandy patch with areas of Poseidon grass, creating small pathways for you to follow. Keep your eyes peeled for Pearly Razorfish which dart down into the sand. On the rare occasion we sometimes see common stingray hiding in the sand!

We often find Moray eel hiding within the reef as well as tompot blenny fish.

The depth of this reef means that Wrasse and Damsel fish often take refuge here. Wrasse come in a range of beautiful colours and are very curious fish. This means if you take two rocks and tap them together they will start to gathering around you and ‘dance’. You will also see them following divers which are touching the floor with their fins, they are looking for small fireworms to eat as the rocks moves.
