Diving in Ayia Napa with Olympian Divers

Diving in Cyprus

We love this group of guides, and not just cause of their good looks and Cypriot charm. Olympian Divers are a company that takes customer service all the way to make a great diving experience for anyone, from the amateur to the experience divers. You will always walk away from their expeditions a little more skilled at diving.

One experience that highlights their care of amateurs is with a four year old a man brought into the shop. The boy didn’t even know how to swim when he came in, and was intimidated to swim without his arm floating. The guide working at the desk helped the little guy learn how to swim after selling the little boy his first snorkel and goggles.

These guys will take you on a range of dives for beginners to more advance. For beginners, they will take you to close off their main quarters, not too far from shore. When they take you, they make sure that everyone learns what they need to know. You aren’t just shown a video; the guide will specifically make sure any concerns or questions are answered. The calm, clear and warm water of the Mediterranean is the perfect place for beginner divers, and you will happen to be diving in a very bio-diverse landscape off of the shores of Ayia Napa.

If you feel a little more comfortable diving, there are some other great expeditions available. One of the more infamous is the Zenobia dive. The MS Zenobia was a ship that sank off the shores of Larnaca after having engineering issues. No one was killed, so don’t worry about any underwater ghosts. On the dive you will get to see the ship up close and personal. They will even let you sit on one of the life boats of the Zenobia.

Another picturesque dive will take you to Cape Greco. A protected natural park, this area has breath taking seascapes. Be wary though. The legendary Ayia Napa sea monster is rumored to live in these waters. We think it worth the risk to check out some of the Cape Greco caves. Also, here you’ll even get a chance to feed the fish.

Diving is a great way to experience Cyprus in a complete new light. Olympian Divers are the way to go if you choose to take an adventure while you are on holiday.

We invite divers and non-divers alike to enjoy with us the underwater delights that this unique island has to offer. Dive unspoilt landscapes that have remained preserved for thousands of years, swim amongst friendly marine life in warm, calm, crystal clear waters. Whatever your diving experience we have something for everyone. Welcome to Scuba diving in the Mediterranean, & the beautiful island of Cyprus

The Island of Sin or The Island of Aphrodite

Island of Sin or Island of Aphrodite

Before you come to Cyprus, you may marvel at the small size of the country on the map. When you come to Cyprus you’ll be amazed by the diverse range of activities in such a “small” place. Whether you want to go bird watching, tour wineries, see ancient ruins, go clubbing or just lay in the sun, Cyprus has it all.

Some have referred to Cyprus as the Island of Sin while others refer to Cyprus as the Island of Aphrodite. We like to think that we’re both, but you can experience whichever half you like. That is why it is imperative when you plan your trip to Cyprus, you know exactly what you are looking to do with your holiday.

If you want to go clubbing, see live music and live there is no tomorrow, Ayia Napa is the place to go. People travel from around the world to immerse themselves in Ayia Napa’s night life. There is a large cluster of bars, clubs and lounger concentrated together to explore. To cure yourself of any residuals effects of drinking, you can go sweat it off on the Ayia Napa beaches for the day.

For a more laid back experience there are a variety of trips you could plan. You can go to a quiet village like Lemona that has wineries located near it. You can go up to villages nestled in the Troodos Mountains for skiing, craftsmanship and beautiful views. Or you can hang out with the locals in our diverse capitol in Nicosia.

The possibilities are truly endless in Cyprus. It can be hard to choose what, when and where you are going to go. The great thing about being a small island is that most destinations are within close proximity. You can plan a trip with multiple destinations if you plan a car to experience different parts of the country. We’re excited to have you come, and remember you could always plan another trip to experience a different part of Cyprus!

Places to see in Cyprus

Cyprus is one of the top places for tourism in the world and occupies a prime spot in its economy. Over 50% of the tourism comes in the form of people coming in from the Great Britain, to breathe into the history and see the roles that their ancestors played in the makings of this island.

Here is an overview of Cyprus’s major traveler attractions, which keeps the tourists occupied for most of their visit, captivating them for endless hours, not to forget having a unique attraction for them to see every day.

Ayia (Agia) Napa:

The name Ayia Napa means “holy wooden valley” in Greek. During division of Cyprus in 1974, Ayia Napa served as a miniscule fishing settlement with only two houses and a plain church. Now it’s the biggest tourist attraction of Cyprus, especially for party animals and clubbing freaks, hence no tour is complete to this island without having a go at Ayia Napa. The entire village-turned-town has its exteriors modified like those of ancient times, giving the aura of the olden days back when it was a rural community with dodgy names for clubs and discos. The Nissi beach is where people prefer to sleep their hangovers off during the day, lying under the sun and repeat the same routine during nights, dancing their hearts out at the moonlit coastline.

Ayia Napa also offers a variety of water sports such as water skiing, scuba diving, deep-sea diving, speed boating, wind surfing and canoeing to name a few. Harbor beach is another beach at Ayia Napa, where youngsters like to gather around for a tan or a quick game of volley ball.

Lemesos / Limassol

Lemesos or Limassol is where the famous Cyprus University of Technology located along with many museums and archeological sites. A large marina and fishing point being constructed is near it, attracting the tourists more towards Lemesos. It is also the trade and service providing centers’ in the area.

Lemesos is built between two cities, Amathus and Kourion and its tourist strip now glides east along the shoreline as far as Amathus.
