Limassol Wrecks

Sunk 22nd February 2014 in the marine reserve area of Dasoudi bay, as part of a scheme to promote diving in Cyprus.

The wrecks are 200 meters apart and although too far to visit them both on one dive, early in 2015 will see the constructing of a natural reef linking the two. A main large pyramid structure providing shelter to more and more marine life, with various other structures to make many interesting dive routes and hence make Limassol a very popular dive destination.

The wrecks have already attracted lots of marine life with Seabream, Octopus and large Groupers to be seen.

We kit up at the dive centre and make our way down to the boat, the Aloha boat is a purpose built 12 meter vessel, offering space and comfort for your trip. We are running trips to the wrecks all year round, with winter trips being made on our 7 meter rib. The wrecks are a 2 minute boat ride away from our centre and so usually we return to the centre for the surface interval for refreshments and to change tanks.
