Attraction details
Owner description: Undersea Walking is the newest and most innovative attraction to arrive in Cyprus. There are only seven in the world and we are the only one in Europe. Take the opportunity to explore the amazing Undersea World the easy way.As you stroll along the sea bed in 10ft of clear turquoise water to observe the sea life as it swims around you but you also have the opportunity to hand feed the fish. You need no lessons or swimming ability only a swim suit, towel and spirit of adventure. Get ready to take a walk on the wild side!!!

“Matchbox moment”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2013

Fab experience. I was full of trepidation but had a great time. I agree it is not a walk as such but an amazing experience and should not be ridiculed. It is something you do not get to do every day so is very special. Wet suits and feet provided, some rocks on the sea floor and thousands of fish which responded to the generator for the air in the hoods. They weigh 30 kilos and they are heavy but less so in the water. It is hot in the hoods and not for the claustrophobic, but you do stay dry. The fish are a bit like ducks you throw food and they eat it. Sea was warm, current a bit disconcerting but I managed. Go for it you will not regret it.

“Worth Every Penny”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 11, 2013 via mobile

I saw this and wasn't sure whether or not to do it but my boyfriend and I thought, why not!
It was amazing! One of the best things of the entire holiday. The staff were lovely, well trained and really helpful. A woman who was in the group with us was a little nervous and the staff were amazing.
You also get the chance to buy a DVD of you under the water and a CD with pictures that they take when you are under.
This is a must do for everyone who comes to Paphos. Can't recommend it highly enough :)

“Good and bad”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 1, 2013

Indeed this is an experience, and simply being underwater and seeing the fish is great. No doubt about that.
BUT...to describe this experience as a "walk" or "stroll" is simply inaccurate. A max of 5 steps take you to a rope which you hold onto and pose for endless photos. That`s it, and then back the way you came. Another reviewer describes this as undersea photo posing rather than undersea walking. We`d agree with that.
Being told the names of the fish and what to look out for would have added to the experience too.
As long as you`re aware of what you`re paying for - you make the choice if it`s for you.

“wow what an experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2013

just got back from a week in paphos and booked for the undersea walking, went with our grandson 15yrs myself 60yrs and hubby 63yrs . We were a bit nervous but those guys are so experienced and no what they are doing- I don't usually even like swimming in the sea, but boy did we all enjoy this crazy experience. You get a full talk on safety issues and they guide you through every aspect I thought I would feel frightened entering the water once the diving helmet was on,as they are heavy, but you hit the water there is no weight at all and had no fear with the breathing. You go down in groups of six and get a full 30minutes seeing all the fish swimming around you and feeding them. They- the divers are with you at all times checking you are happy (if you indicate you don't wish to carry on they just take you back to surface). The divers encourage the fish around you feeding them to give you an absolute wonderful show of the marine life, words cannot express how truly marvellous this is. We paid extra to have the DVD video and photos they took of us, they also let you see what they have taken so you don't feel stitched up-very pleased with the DVD and photos they took and burnt onto discs. If you get the chance to do it this I recommend it 100%

“Go see the fishes !”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2013

Many thanks for a fantasic experience, very weird when you first go in, but stick with it it's worth it. Well run, by experienced guys, looks a bit ramshackle but these guys know what they are doing and do their best to attract as many fish as possible.
