Above are pictures of the amazing Zenobia, if you click on them you will see a full sized picture of her on her way down. She sank in Larnaca Bay in 1980  with no lives lost. There seems to have been a lot written about her which is a complete fallacy, such as 'it was her maiden voyage' but we have had a word with the chap that knows, and apparently she had problems before this one. To read more in depth stuff (so to speak) do check out Ian's account at: (oops, 2018 update, it's gone!) Sorry about that.

She is nearly 200 metres long and completely intact. She has made a marvellous home for loads of marine life, and large shoals of Amberjack, Grouper and Barracuda are often encountered on her.

The Zenobia dive starts at 17 metres and bottoms out at 43 metres. But the depth to which you will be able to dive will depend upon your diving skills and qualifications.
She still has her original cargo including articulated lorries full of goods on board.
