About the MS Zenobia Wreck

After several unsuccessful attempts to fix the ballast problem, the Zenobia sank on the 7th of June 1980. All passengers/crew were saved, however her 135 articulated lorries went down and all her cargo. She came to rest on her port side on the 42m deep seabed while the starboard side lies at 18m. The best features are the 2 massive propellers (one at 28m and the other at 38m), lifeboats still intact and 135 articulated lorries still chained to the ship! There are great opportunities to penetrate the wreck through the bridge, cafeteria (the kettles are even still there), the accommodation (complete with toilets, showers, and carpets) and upper car deck.


There is no fishing allowed within 3 miles of the wreck and it is strictly enforced, therefore you get to see a plethora of marine life. Huge groupers and barracuda patrol the wreck along with schools of sea bream, damsel fish, triggerfish and the occasional turtle. This is truly a divers paradise! The trip is a full day excursion and price includes transfer to Larnaca, boat transfer to the wreck, two dives on the Zenobia and a barbeque lunch on board, as well as water, tea and coffee. See our dive packages for details.
