The best time to dive in Cyprus is between March and November when you will enjoy calm seas and warm crystal-clear water, however this island is one of the best places in the Mediterranean to dive all year with its abundance of sunny days and endless visibility.
There is a mixture of shore diving, boat diving, a choice of wrecks, the Zenobia and wall and reef dives. The sites surrounding the island are home to an abundance of sea life including barracuda, turtles, grouper, jacks, trumpet fish, rays, numerous wrasses, cuttlefish, squid, sponges, starfish, bream, sea cucumbers, sea hares, seahorses, anemones, squirrel fish and hatchet fish.
As part of the ongoing programme to create protected areas of artificial reefs we are excited to let you know about the latest wreck for divers in Cyprus, MV Elpida. She was sank in December 2019 and wreck enthusiasts can explore the large bridge, accommodation areas, deck and two masts on the outside, and container, engine room and three decks of quarters inside. Over the coming months this new dive site will be colonised by marine life, growths of flora and fauna and will soon develop its own diverse eco system. Already large shoals of fish have been seen followed by hundreds of Amberjacks. Bream, triggerfish and trumpetfish are already on deck.
