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!!!!

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!
