Rated one of the top ten wrecks dives in the world, the Zenobia is a real treat for the experienced diver. The Zenobia lies on her port side with 104 articulated lorries which can still be seen alongside the wreck. MS Zenobia was a Swedish built Challenger-class RO-RO ferry launched in 1979 that capsized and sank in the Mediterranean sea, close to Larnaca, Cyprus, in June 1980 on her maiden voyage.
The seabed is at 42m and the highest point is at 16m with visibility reaching 40m, few currents and warm water it makes an ideal site for all qualified divers whether it is your first wreck dive or you want a series of technical penetration dives. The marine life in and around the wreck is unique in Cyprus , nowhere else will you get the chance to see grouper, barracuda, tuna, turtle and trigger fish… the list is endless and all at the same dive site.
Whilst diving around the outside of the Zenobia you can see a wide variety of fish life from large Groupers to barracudas and tiny nudibranchs that make the Zenobia their home. The cargo of trucks and their contents have never been salvaged and so are there for you to see lying on the seabed and chained to the decks.
Two dives on the Zenobia Wreck is a start, but it’s simply not enough!
