Ranked among the top 10 wreck dive sites worldwide, Zenobia remains a positively must-see wreck. This roll-on/roll-off ferry sank in 1980 outside Larnaca port. From 16-42 meters deep, 178 meters long, her €220 million cargo includes 104 lorries still fully laden with cargo on board!
Zenobia truly is one of the most amazing dive sites you will ever visit. She provides plenty of options for divers of all advanced levels, with the top of the wreck sitting at just 16 meters at its shallowest point, and 42 meters down to the seabed, and with hundreds of different penetration dive options available from heading through the upper car deck on a 72 meter penetration dive, to making the 80 meter journey through the accommodation corridor. Divers may also swim along the starboard side of the ship looking down through the accommodation corridors and down across the main deck.
For the technical diver there are also plenty of more advanced dives available, from heading into the lower car deck, a 172-meter penetration dive running the entire length of the wreck, where you can see the only car and a JCB construction excavator, and the infamous ‘engine room’ – you’ll need your torches and reels handy for these!
