looking at arranging a trip to dive the Zenobia, can anyone recomend a rebreather friendly dive operation over there?

Speak to Chris at Alpha divers - close and with their own boat.
with him dickie367's got a chance to end up in a group of 5-10 divers diving faster than a speed of light through different sections of Zenobia. The group has one dive guide at the front, and one at the back. Non-stop, just "go go go" due to half of the group having 15 L tanks only.

Waste of money & time

Complete opposite to my experience, we were sent off in pairs and left to our own dive, or led through a certain part then left to complete the dive on our own. 15l are fine for a great dive with little or no deco, which is what most people want. Not everyone needs larger than 15!!

he'll never let you do deep section penetrations on your own unless he knows that you or your buddy know Zen very well. It's much more profitable for him to do the "long group go-go-go" ...

and I don't blame him, too many have died. We were left to do our own into cafe, lorry hold and a few other bits as well as any external dives we wanted to do. Led by Chris through lower sections, at our speed in our own group only.

Everything looks like Cyprus will widely reopen again from 1st of March despite we are still under the quite strong quarantine here! Winter is so warm here this year and we expect to open wet suit season in Larnaca area by mid April ;)
