I dive on Zenobia for several years already and always find something new and interesting. Some of the Dive Masters that work (!!!) in Larnaca dive on Zenobia on there days-off to explore the wreck and go where the tourists don't go. Obviously for Tec Divers there are many interesting places on the wreck to exlore.

Definitely worth diving this sunken Car/lorry ferry. Absolutely fascinating and still intact even though on its side. I dived with Alpha Divers, Lanarca, who have their own boats and they have there own descent line to the wreck. They obviously know' the wreck well and they made the dives, I did several, extremely interesting and very safe. Top dive.

Close to the shore, it's a large wreck in relatively shallow water. Was a Ro-Ro Ferry that sank on its maiden voyage.It's lying on its side and so big some divers rfop down onto it without realizing they're already there! You can see the vehicles that were on its deck, experienced divers can go through the interior. If you have... More

Local diving firm, Nemo dive center, with excellent staff and equipment. Visibility was said to be "bad" but better than I've seen. I made one dive to Zenobia. Lots of fish, trucks and divers down there.

Great wreck but make sure you negotiate what you get to see in advance. The viking divecenter made the first dive on another wreck instead.

One of the best dive sites in south Cyprus, definitely worth a couple of dives. The wreck is 178m long with 3 penetrations down to 40+m. Not much marine life (its the Med), but the size of the ship with the trucks, cars and animal bones with great vis and comfortable water temp; a couple of dives i definitely recommend... More

It is the best wreck diving sight in Cyprus attracting thousands of divers every year. There is a record of 6 unfortunate fatalities from the time it sank (1980) till these days. However, PADI Master Scuba Diver Trainers, insist that hundreds of divers are taken to the Zenobia each year. If one could count the number of divers that have... More

We did two dives on Zenobia as part of our Advanced Open Water. It was breathtaking - the size of the ship, visibility, lorries - for me it was unbelievable that such big ship was simply abandoned to sink. Before going to Zenobia, I definitely recommend you read something about the history on wikipedia or somewhere. When it comes to... More
