Zenobia – Long Weekend
April 18 - April 22
Join us for a long weekend diving the Zenobia in Cyprus with Alpha Divers in Larnaca.
The Zenobia Wreck is one of the top ten wreck dives in The World, as voted by divers each year. She sank on 7th June 1980, and rests on her port side between 19m and 42m. MS Zenobia was a Swedish built Challenger-class RO-RO ferry 172m long, and sank with over 100 vehicles and lorries. Engineers discovered that the computerized pumping system was pumping excess water into the side ballast tanks due to a software error. It has become a haven for a range of fantastic marine life. The outside of the wreck has much to see with the 2 massive props, roro doors, the lorries on the outside, funnels, bridge, cafeteria, the bow area and the accommodation. The Zenobia has amazing technical diving routes where you can hone your technical skills and complete some of your technical diving courses there.
The plan is to fly out to Cyprus on the 18th April and return on the 22nd April.
We will then spend 3 days with Alpha Divers in Larnaca diving the Zenobia.
To optimise the diving opportunities, we will be offering both Tech training prior to the trip, and there will also be the opportunity for further Tech training and diving on the trip. This would enable you to have a longer bottom tine and therefore explore more of this amazing wreck.
You would book your own flights and accommodation – we are likely staying at the Mariandy Hotel, Larnaca, next door to Alpha Divers. So the approximate cost for the long weekend will be £500
