I did a 10 dives safari with Alpha Divers club. You begin in the first days with open dives around the ship and just then you start to understand, HOW BIG IS IT!!! The other days you start penetrating the ship in layers when the Forth day includes dives to the deep inner of the Ship. I must say the... More

Very nice dive site. A lot of fish surrounding the ship. The ship itself is very interesting to see. We did 2 dive on the external of the ship and loved every second of it. The dive site is usually packed with divers and boat.

Fantastic wreck that is very pristine. You want to have good exposure protection if you get cold easily because the thermoclines are pretty drastic in temperature change. Nice variety of marine life on the wreck and the story behind it is pretty cool. The vessel we were on was called Queen of Zenobia which was very cool, they served us... More

My family and I have just returned from Cyprus after the best holiday of our lives. The exceptional service Alpha Divers provides starts way before the actual holiday begins. We emailed Chris M several times in the run up to the holiday & he promptly replied to each one answering all our queries. He even rang me a couple of... More

After 5 years of being a diving instructor in Cyprus I still could not get enough of diving the Zen.It is a perfect wreck for beginners taking their first wreck dive or experienced divers that have been doing it for years. Sitting in 42m of water it is impossible to go beyond the recommended limits and with the side of... More

Staying in Paphos, I booked a day trip to dive the Zenobia with Cy-Dive. Very professional. 10 experienced divers in an air-conditioned coach - its a long drive from Paphos. I'd heard many accounts of the Zenobia, but the reality is far more, bigger and better than the stories... We dived twice - the first dive was from midships to... More

I've been coming to Cyprus for a few years now and Zen is the reason I love this wreck there is just something magical about it. I've dived it many times but this time with alpha divers this is a winning combo. Go to Cyprus dive zen with alpha divers you'll have a smile from ear to ear.

The biggest wreck I've ever seen. An interesting fauna and flora. Possible professional and amateur diving. There are also organized sightseeing trips for non-divers.

This is one of the only good dives in Cyprus and well worth going. There are very few fish and no coral in Cyprus so stick to the wreck dive. If you are a Tec diver use Dive-in Larnaca
