Cyprus Diving Trip 2023
21st to the 28th of November
Imagine a Mediterranean island bathed in warm, clear blue water. Long, sandy beaches punctuate the predominantly indented and rocky coastline, and the culture and cuisine are unmistakably Mediterranean. This is Cyprus, and it’s nestled in the northeast corner of the Eastern Mediterranean Sea.
Cyprus offer’s easy access from Gatwick and Luton with direct flight times of less than 5 hours.
Cyprus offers one of the best climates in the Mediterranean, on average Cyprus has over 330 days of sunshine per year with November daytime temperatures of around 18 deg and a water temperature of around 20 deg.
Why Dive in Cyprus?
- Crystal-clear comfortable water temperatures throughout the year (in November we should be looking at 17 to 21 deg).
- The waters around Cyprus are not particularly tidal, currents tend to be mild and water movement minimal making Cyprus an ideal destination for all levels of divers.
- Dive sites consist of both shore and Boat dives. Many sites are suitable for both Jr & Adult Open Water divers with plenty of advanced options for the more experienced.
- Diving in Cyprus is often referred to as the ‘Jewel of the Mediterranean’ Diving in Cyprus is truly unique and unlike any other destination in Europe.
- To top it all off Cyprus even has the Zenobia one of the top 5 wrecks in the world. This wreck is truly breathe taking and is guaranteed to make you smile
- Out of the water in November we are looking at daytime temperatures between 18 & 22 deg, although overnight it can drop to around 10 deg so remember to pack some warm clothes for the evening.
