The Zenobia Wreck

The Zenobia sank at 2.30am, 7th June 1980, just outside Larnaca and since then she has become world famous. Voted the top 3rd wreck worldwide (Diver Magazine 2007) the Zenobia is perhaps the “crème de la resistance” of what we can offer you, the experienced diver. Unluckily, this roll-on-roll-off ferry went down fully loaded on her maiden voyage, coming to her final resting place on her port side in 42 meters of water. Lucky for us though……she went down ‘fully loaded’ with over 100 different cars and luxury trucks on board, and since then no salvage has been done. This artificial reef is the perfect training ground for advanced divers to earn their Deep, Wreck and Boat Specialties…. Why don’t you take advantage of our Enriched Air Nitrox to really maximize your bottom time and truly explore this metal giant?
