Wrecks are mysterious and exciting and here in Cyprus we have one of the best in the world – the Zenobia Wreck. Peering into the past, ships, airplanes and even cars are fascinating to explore and usually teem with aquatic life and every wreck dive offers a chance for discovery and the potential to unlock a mystery or discovering something others have missed.
