    First time scuba diving, Jurg the instructor took his time to teach the skills before entering the water so you knew what to expect. Jurg was friendly and patient, taken his time to ensure I was safe, comfortable and checking my understanding before going deeper. For anyone starting off scuba diving or advanced I would recommend Jurg he has a way to help you relax and have fun all at the same time. From this enjoyable experience I am going to continue to work towards getting my adventures diver level. Thank you Jurg for a fantastic time and making the experience 10 out of 10 seeing all the beautiful tropical fish.

    I pre planned some dives over a couple of days by booking in the online system that Cydive offer. Communication from the outset was excellent, with advice on type of conditions I could expect and how the dives are managed, special mention to Sophie who was extremely helpful with communications. I’m recently qualified open water diver and the advice and support was really appreciated.

    When we did arrive into Cyprus the weather wasn’t great, and the first days diving had to be cancelled which was absolutely the right thing. Sophie and the Cydive team were quick to get communication out and helped me rearrange alternate diving for when conditions improved which meant it was only a day later.

    The day of the dives the team were very organised, and helped ensure everyone was well looked after from the initial briefing to finishing the dives. Special mention here for Mike, senior instructor and long time diver who was my buddy on a couple of the dives. Mikes experience and calm approach to everything helped ensure myself and all others had a great, safe dive. Also must mention Andreas, who was our dive lead and trainee dive master. Andreas did an excellent job of leading our group and pointing out items of interest during the dives, as well as ensuring all were safe.

    Highly recommend Cydive if you’re just interested in having a go or a qualified diver looking for a good centre to go out with.

    Just completed our 4th dive over 2 days with Marine Divers. Dives at Amphitheatre, The Stage, Pistol Bay and Champagne Rock - all great dive sites for an introduction to Cyprus diving. Today the visibility was comparable to the Red Sea. Wonderful marine life and geology underwater. Jonny was welcoming and friendly, a great guide who gave us an excellent set of dives, well maintained kit and a really great 2 days. Thanks Jonny. We'll definitely be back! Greg & Anne.

    I’ve been on numerous kayak trips in several countries on two continents, and am an enthusiastic paddler at home in California. When traveling I like to go with a local guide, at least at first.
    I am here to tell you that Lucy from Zephyros Adventure Sports in Paphos is the best of the bunch. I paddled with her on a very challenging day, when the offshore winds at the scheduled put in time were too strong to go out in, given the varied experience and fitness levels within the group.
    Lucy entertained us with some drills and snorkelling in the protected harbor, where we were lucky enough to see several loggerhead turtles, and lo and behold, the wind shifted and we were able to get our paddle in.
    Lucy’s leadership was calm, thoughtful, humorous snd professional throughout.
    Highly recommend this trip.

    Great Dive Centre. It was a first dive for our 12yr old son, plus a refresher dive for us.
    Nikolas & Stathos both made us feel comfortable & relaxed with the instructions given.
    Highly experienced Dive instructor. Good equipment, well instructed and a nice little dive site. Our son loved it and can't wait to do another. Recommended if in Paphos area.

    Had a fantastic dive with Chris. From the start he filled me with confidence, asked all the right questions about my ability and I felt save at all times. All-round lovey guy and would definitely dive with him again.

    And it's also one of the cheapest dive of the island (including snack, video/photo, full equipment and transportation.

    Absolutely brilliant tour from start to finish. Highly recommend. At €15 per adult and €5 per child, it is extremely reasonably priced and worth every cent.
    Very easy to book, we booked the morning of - a quick whatsapp or call and Inga sorts it all out.
    Hassan and his (presumable) brother took very good care of everyone on the boat and were so friendly and informative. You're shown and told all about the Vera K shipwreck off the coast. You also are shown sea sponges and told all about the Cypriot history of sponge diving and current conservation measures.
    Once out enough, you stop for a swim - heaven! A lot of people stayed on board, but there were definitely a lot that got in! There are ladders to get in and out, and you can rinse off once back on board.
    Fully stocked with life jackets and goggles/snorkel equipment if you wanted. The guys were great with adults and children alike, and educational yet entertaining!
    They also had a nice bar with great prices, and a triple deck to view from.
    All in all, an excellent trip and well worth it!

    We booked for my mums birthday 16 of us and had a fabulous day . They didn't go out to far which i liked and the sea was so calm the day we went out. we had 2 stops both beautiful and the sea is crystal clear but sadly there is not much marine life to see, we all agreed the food was delicious we had chicken and pork this was cooked while we swam also rice, salad and potatoes the drinks were plentiful in fact most of us got off the the boat a little merry shall we say { haha} you can play your own music which was good and they also provided a cake for my mum . All in all it was the perfect treat and everyone had a great day
