Cyprus’ waters are perfect for scuba diving, year round! They are warm, clear, calm and very safe. Our favourite dive centre, Cyprus Diving Adventures in Pissouri Village, is headed up by Steve Ford who offers our guests a 10 – 20% discount (depending on group size) and a brilliant free visiting service and free pick up and drop off service. So there are no excuses not to get your wet suit on, dive in and try an exciting new activity!
