I was in Cyprus on business so has no intention of diving. On Sunday I realised I was free on Monday (a bank holiday on Cyprus) so on the off chance emailed Dive In to see if they were open. Almost immediately I received an email from Sheri saying I could dive subject to last dive, qualifications etc. I confirmed my level and last dive date and was told I could join a group of two divers and a guide. I also needed to hire full kit. They took a deposit via email/phone. All booked. Could not have been easier.
On the day of the dive I arrived at 8am as requested. Parking was easy and just outside their shop. I met Sheri and my dive instructor. They sorted out all my kit within minutes. Once you have analysed your mix and set up your kit they take it down to the boat/harbour for you (nice!). After a good briefing about the dive (The Zenobia in this case) we took the 3 minute walk down to the boat. Once in, we had a safety briefing and headed off to the dive site. FOUR (yea four) minutes later we were positioned over the Zenobia. We kitted up on the Rib and did a roll in entry.
The dive itself was and excellent penetration dive. The guide was really relaxed but very professional checking every few minutes we were all happy. As it was quite a small group we got to spend plenty of time exploring.
Back to the surface and you de kit in the water which again is nice.
Back to base and they take care of ll of your kit. You wander back, get changed and if you are diving again in the afternoon there is a little cafe next door where you can get an English breakfast and drinks and chill for a couple of hours.
Second dive much the same the same service etc
On finishing your dive you also get a briefing which I have never had before. They explain you have been on two deep dives and what you shouldn't do for the next 24 hours. They also give you an emergency number should you experience any problems. I thought this was a really nice touch and wasn't a case of thank you and goodbye!
When I am back next I will most definately be booking up with these guys again.
Very professional, friendly, knowledgable and fun.
