Why Train In Cyprus?

Perfect Conditions – With the ability to dive year round with hardly any issues on weather constraints means no lost training days and more training possibilities within your available timeframe! Remember sometimes you have a very tight time frame to utilise and adhere to!

Visibility is 12m to 20m underwater, combined with warm waters circa 19c in winter through to 28c in summer. This makes for a more relaxed environment where the concentration can be on training not on conditions. Very importantly it means diving is virtually guaranteed every day - and no days are lost due to poor weather -  unfortunately lost diving days is a regular occurrence in the UK which seriously impedes your chances of completing an in-depth program within a specified time frame.

Training in Sunny Cyprus is great fun, you are even able to get a tan AND we drive on the “proper” side of the road. With the majority of the locals speaking English as a second language means you will not be stuck wondering what to do in your recreational times. The UK’s history in Cyprus goes back a long way and continues today with the presence of MOD Bases at Dhekelia, Ay Nik, Episkopi and the RAF base at Akrotiri, you may even have served here sometime in the past! If so then Welcome Back and if not then a Great Big Hearty Welcome to Cyprus, the Island of Aphrodite!
