WHY LEARN TO DIVE
Why is scuba so great?
If you ask a Diver why he or she learned to dive, you would get a multitude of different answers varying from the serenity of being underwater ("the other half can not nag at me underwater") to the Adventure of Diving and the Variety of Diving available.
Cyprus is a perfect Training ground for Scuba Diving. From shallow Dive Sites with gentle walk-in entries and gently sloping bottoms to cliff jumping entries and deeper sites for the more adventurous Diver, at Scuba-Tech Diving Centre we can accomodate all levels of Scuba Diver Training.
Equally, a short drive from the Dive Centre in Protaras to Larnaca, you can find the Zenobia Shipwreck, which is a perfect site for Technical Diver Training and PADI Diver Specialty Training such as Wreck Diver, Boat Diver and even Digital Underwater Photographer.
Our Dive Sites have up to 40metres of Visibility and the water temperatures stretch from a mild 16 degrees in the winter months to 30 degrees in the height of Summer, so you will be comfortable in the water any time of the year.
