Limassol Diving

limassol_top

Limassol is a large international city in the centre of the southern part of our island. In February 2014, the Cyprus Fishery Department sunk 2 fishing vessels in the marine reserve of Dasoudi bay to create an artificial reef along the Limassol Coast. The fishing vessels are called Constadis and Lady Thetis. The sea life is increasing day by day and on your dive you can spot sea bream, groupers, moray eel and octopus.

The Costandis with its open engine room is very easy to penetrate and explore to see the fishing equipment still in its place. The Lady Thetis being a recreational boat you can still see the dining tables on the top deck and explore the captain’s bridge and engine room. We organise dive trips to these wreck dive sites on Mondays every week.
