Zenobia special

dive into history

In 1980, the MS Zenobia, a Swedish ferry, was fully loaded and on its way to Syria. It was to be her first and last voyage - she finally sank in the bay of Larnaka and now lies on the bottom at a depth of up to 40m. It is now not only one of the top 10 wreck dive sites in the world, but also one of the largest diveable wrecks in the entire Mediterranean. Explore this magical place together with us and learn more about the history.

dive up to 40m deep

On a sandbank the ferry lies on the port side in a depth of up to 43m. However, your ship's side can be reached at a depth of 18m. Thus, you can have a look at the complete wreck.

your trip to zenobia could look like this

meeting at the base
Before the adventure can start, we meet at our base. Here we have time for a relaxed get to know each other and for the preparations of the trip. Don’t worry: we will fully take care of the transportation and loading of our vehicle. However, we need the time on site to prepare the equipment or, if necessary, to select the right equipment for you and to familiarize you with it. There will also be a brief discussion about the itinerary of the trip.
the way to the dive site
On the day of the adventure, unfortunately, early rising can not be avoided. But: It will be worth it! Early in the morning we will either meet at the center or pick you up from your accommodation. Of course, you can also start the journey alone. Just as you like. By this time, our car will already be fully loaded, so we can be quite relaxed on the way. The trip to Larnaca will take about 2 hours. Enough time to talk about the history of the wreck, have nice conversations or just relax. Arriving at the port we are already welcomed by the boat and the crew.
on the boat
In the first step we stow our equipment on the boat. Afterwards we have time for a coffee or tea before we start with the detailed briefing. We take time to clarify all questions and only when everyone feels comfortable with the plan do we put on our equipment. After the buddy check, we wait for the GO from the captain and finally jump into the depths.
1 dive
Even with the controlled descent on the line, you will have a breathtaking view – because the wreck is directly below you. Usually on the first dive we explore the aft side of the ship. Here you dive along right next to the huge ship propellers and can then take a look at the 108 loaded trucks. Many sea creatures such as large groupers, barracudas or lionfish are waiting for your visit. After about 30-45 minutes, it’s time to head back to the boat. After a safety stop we surface and take off our equipment. Between the two dives we have enough time for a break. After a refreshing drink we start with the second briefing.
2 dive
In the second dive we usually explore the inner part of the wreck. Thanks to our flashlights, we can catch a glimpse of every single corner. Of course, we only do this if everyone is comfortable with the plan. Because even outside, many magical places are waiting to be explored. We then dive along the long side of the ship. Since the wreck lies on its side, there is a phenomenal view here. Slowly we make our way back to the boat.
Once on the boat, we make ourselves comfortable in the cozy seating area on the deck of the boat. With a drink we have enough time for a debriefing and for logging the dives. Enjoy the view and the way back to the harbor.
way back
Arriving at the harbor, the first thing we do is stow our equipment in the car. With the loaded vehicle we make our way back to Coral Bay. We love to review the moments during the ride and just relax. Of course, if you wish, we will bring you back directly to your accommodation.
