    Zenobia Wreck Dive

    Consistently ranked as one of the top 10 recreational dive sites in the world, the Zenobia wreck lies off the coast of Larnaca.
    The Zenobia was a Swedish cargo ship on her maiden voyage from Sweden to Syria, with several port stops in between, Larnaca being among them. When the ship arrived in Larnaca, the captain noticed that, due to a software error, the ship’s system was pumping excess water into the ballast system, which caused the ship to list to the side. This eventually caused the ship to sink, losing all of its cargo which was estimated at roughly 200 million USD.
    This dive site offers several challenges to divers, spanning a wide range of proficiencies.
    There is a simple dive along the starboard which is suitable for newly qualified divers, moving up to more difficult dives inside the upper car deck and the lower car deck which are only suitable for experienced and very experienced divers.
