It's very difficult to describe the feeling you get when you first dive on the wreck. I was very lucky to do my first wreck dive on the Zen, it's huge Just under 200m long and perfectly preserved. The fish are not shy and will get in your face which is perfect if you're taking photos. I would be doing... More

Really awesome wreck. If you're a diver, don't leave Cyprus before you have visited it. We got great experience with Viking Divers.

Worked in Cyprus as an instructor and can safely say this is in my top 5 wrecks! Warm and clear waters make this a real treat from beginners to this type of diving to the experienced rec diver. Its popularity and well maintained guide ropes allow for safe assent am decent as well as deco stop markers. Highly recommended!!!!

I spent a week diving with Alpha Divers during October 2014 and thoroughly enjoyed my experience with the dive operation and the dive sites. I have been diving since 1966 all over the world and also worked at a dive service in the Bahamas in the past. The instructor/guide staff are very friendly, understanding and professional...they know their stuff and... More

We did two dives on the Zenobia during our AOW course with Alpha Divers. It was overwhelming, both the wreck itself and also the marine life around it! Alpha Divers are professional, customer oriented an truly care about safety and environmental issues. Highly recommended!

What an amazing dive. Short boat ride from Larnaca. Great visibility. The wreck can be seen from the moment you jump into the water. It is huge and 2 dives was just not enough to explore the whole wreck. Bring a torch if you plan to go inside as it does get pretty dark in there.
