If you’re already a qualified diver these two videos could be of interest to you if you’re thinking of Cyprus for a holiday.
The first video below is taken from the Alexandria – a wrecked fishing vessel. It’s situated very close to the stricken Zenobia cargo ship in Larnaca bay.
The Zenobia (below) sank off Larnaca in 1980 and has always been popular as a dive site but some divers have died there and at the moment I’m not certain if diving is still possible on the Zenobia. If you are interested to dive here it’s recommended you check with one of the dive offices before booking a holiday to do this specifically.
From Wikipedia: At around 2:30am 7 June 1980, the Zenobia capsized and sank in Larnaca Bay to a depth of roughly 42 metres (138 ft), taking her estimated £200 million worth of cargo with her. According to local legend, the Zenobia’s owners never collected the insurance money and no formal investigation has ever been published. Since sinking she has become a popular dive site for visitors to Cyprus and was named one of the world’s top ten dive sites by The Times in March 2003.
If you want to learn to dive in Cyprus there are many dive instructors sites to choose from.
Here are a small selection of websites to give you an idea:
CyDive – Paphos based
