Scuba diving information in Larnaca, Larnaca, Cyprus

The main reason for divers to come to Larnaca is the wreck of the Zenobia, a Ro-Ro ferry that sunk in 1980 on her maiden voyage only a few hundred meters from the harbor due to a fault in the ballast computer. The ship now lies on its side, fully loaded with cargo at a depth of 42 meters, with the top of the wreck at 18m and thus easily accessible to all divers.

Some other good diving spots are the HMS Cricket Wreck, an old British battleship that rests upside down and is home to groupers and other fish, the Larnaca Bay Reefs and the Cyclopes Caves.

Many beach access points lead to great shore diving and boat diving is plentiful.
