“It is magnificent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2012

Been there with one of my friends on a boat trip and the opportunity to see something extraordinary was a trill to me.
Seeing that ship down there is more then see in film.

“Fantastic wreck, 10 dives is a must!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2012

We did a 10 dive package with alpha divers and had a blast. What a fantastic wreck, i have dived truk lagoon, thistlegorm etc and many other great wreck sites around the world and this ranks right up there. Got to be on your wreck diving bucket list! Top tip, speak to alpha divers about there accommodation and diving package, great value for serious divers!

“Wreck divers playground!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2012

Dived this wreck now two years running... first year with Dive-In this year with Alpha Divers. Both great outfits see separate reviews!

This is a real big wreck you really need a good guide, but its really rewarded with some great dives.

“Amazing dive site”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2012

Zenobia is the biggest wreck I have ever seen.
you need at list 2 dives there to have a good look.
It's a must-dive site for any experienced diver.
It's possible to dive inside with Alpha-Divers and maybe others too.

“Water sighseeng”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2012

If you love diving the Zenovia Wrech is a must place to go. MS Zenobia was a Swedish built Challenger-class RO-RO ferry launched in 1979 that capsized and sank close to Larnaca, Cyprus, in June 1980 on her maiden voyage.[1][4] She now rests on her port side in approximately 42 metres (138 ft) of water and was named as one of The Times top ten wreck diving sites in the world in 2003.As a dive site, the Zenobia provides a wide range of challenges to scuba divers, from a fairly simple dive to 16 metres (52 ft) depth along the starboard side of the ship (suitable for newly qualified divers); moving up to a more advanced dive inside the upper car deck and accommodation block, right up to extremely adventurous dives within the lower car deck or the engine room (which are only suitable for very experienced divers).
Although all hands were safely taken off the ship before she sank, the lives of four scuba divers have been lost in the intervening years. There was also a truckload of animals on board who died when the ship went down; one can still see their bones in one of the wagons on the main deck. There is also a full cargo of eggs that lies on the sea bed (42 mts)
