SCUBA DIVING CYPRUS


Cyprus is your gateway to the magical wonders of the undersea world and the warm blue Mediterranean sea. It is perfect for diving all year round due to its mild winters, water temperature never drops below 16C. Cyprus is an ideal place for training due to lack of undersea currents and close proximity to all dive sites. In Cyprus divers of different abilities and experience are handled and treated individually to ensure that everyone gets the full benefit from their dive experience. Even children as young as eight years old can come and join a special program were they will experience all the wonders of diving with their own individual diving instructor.
