What to Expect

At your hotel, pack your swimsuit, a towel, and a bottle of water for after your dive - it’s thirsty work! Then, meet up with your scuba diving instructors in central Kyrenia, to be driven to the best dive location for the day’s sea conditions.

Your 2 hour “Try Dive” begins with a safety briefing and essential instruction in the use of your scuba gear, all provided of course.

Then it’s flippers and masks on and into the sea! Your instructor will be with you all the way, helping you make the most of your underwater adventure in the calm waters around the North Cyprus coast.

Float above rocks teaming with sealife, or glide over sea grass beds. Come face to face with some of the local fish, and if you’re lucky, maybe spot a green sea turtle gently gliding through the water. The waters around Cyprus are particularly clear, making this Try Dive a fabulous experience for young and old to do together.

All too soon you’ll be back on the surface, air tank emptied, and ready to return to shore. As you dry off and return your gear, exchange stories of what you’ve seen with your fellow divers!

The team will return you to the meeting point in Kyrenia in time for a well-earned lunch or afternoon drink (not included).

Discovery dives for experienced divers
If you’re an experienced diver and hold a current PADI certification card, you can join organised dives to some exceptional dive sites around the coast of Cyprus. These include a weekly trip to the wreck of the Zenobia, a ferry that sank with 104 lorries on board during her maiden voyage in 1980. The wreck is alive with marine life and fish, and is ranked as one of the top ten wrecks dives in the world.
