This is the best wreck I visited ever

The ship is located in not very shallow water, so you use air rather quickly, besides it is VERY big, so you will need at least 2 days to explore it. The visibility is good (we... read more

The ship is located in not very shallow water, so you use air rather quickly, besides it is VERY big, so you will need at least 2 days to explore it. The visibility is good (we were there in January), water temperature was 17 degrees Celsium. I would not recommend to enjoy it from boats with glass floor - it... More

You can rent equipment or simply use a diving shop (you can find plenty listed in Cyprus Best Companies business directory simply search for it). It is a deep dive and you have to be in good condition...

We are not much into SCUBA diving by our hosts at Shema Villa B&B arranged a beginners dive course and it was amazing. The Zenobia is a really long ferry that sank in the '80's and you can even see it from the top of the water but wait until you dive down and swim all over it. This is... More

We took a trip out to see the wreck. It didn't cost much - €12 each - and it was a lovely sea voyage, but the view of the wreck was very disappointing. Through the glass bottom of the boat we could make out odd bits of tackle, lines of the wreck, things that we could half, maybe, identify, but... More

The Zenobia rightly deserves its place amongst the must see wrecks to dive on. Absolutely worth every minute and euro to go see it. If you want to visit i would also recommend Marine Divers in Coral Bay as your guides to make the experience complete.

No wonder this wreck is in the top 10 world wrecks. Nearly two football pitches long with lorries still strapped to the deck.

The instructors I dived with where very professional and I highly recommend alpha divers... The Zenobia shipwreck is massive and you surely won't be able to take your eyes off it for at least 20 minutes once you've seen it!!

Zenobia, an old Swedish wreck of a cargo ship that heeled over and sank outside Larnaca many years ago has become a divers "paradise" for some, and a tourist trap for others. If you´re not diving down to the wreck it´s not worth the trip. You will see nothing or just maybe a shadow of a railing through the glass... More

The Zenobia – an amazing dive for all diver levels. There is plenty to see outside of the wreck as a beginner and even more to see when penetrating the wreck. The articulated Lorries are still chained in place from when the RoRo ferry originally sunk are breath taking. A must see wreck worth diving if an avid diver.
