Diving

Scuba diving in the East Mediterranean sea on the island of Cyprus is the perfect location for both beginners and experienced divers. We operate from Latchi, a tiny fishing village on the west-coast at the border of the Akamas nature resort.

We offer a full range of PADI- courses from bubblemaker until divemaster. We dive in small groups (maximum 4 people) so you get full attention from our instructors. Our goal is to give you an unique diving experience you will not easy forget.

For the certified divers we offer a lot of programs to improve your skills and enhance your experience.

Every day we go out for a two dive boat trip in the beautiful Akamas peninsula. Typically we meet at the beach hut at 08:30 where we prepare and check all the gear. We then leave Latchi harbor in our 130 HP Rigid Inflatable Boat to one of the magnificent dive sites in the Akamas Peninsula. Depending on the experience level of our guests, we choose a dive site which suits everybody. A wide range of different fish can be seen, including, groupers, damsel fish, rain bow wrasse, soldier fish, octopus, Murray eels and even maybe a turtle or dolphin. After our first dive and depending on the sea conditions, we then head towards a secluded bay where we go on shore and enjoy our surface interval with refreshments or a hot cup of coffee and tea with the much appreciated home made cakes. One hour later we gear up again and go by boat to our second dive site. We return to latchi harbour at 2pm.

All divers from all recognised organisations are welcome. Certified divers are requested to show their certification and log books before hand.

The Akamas national park has many beautiful dive sites you definitely will enjoy. Water temperature throughout the year are moderate to warm from 30 degrees in the summer to 17 degrees in April. We use the latest diving gear from Technisub, Aqualung , Suunto and Luxfer.
