White Star

Cyprus > White Star

White Star

The White Star originated as a Russian fishing boat in the Black Sea and after refurbishment served as an excursion boat on Cyprus. The vessel hit a shelf in February 2007 and sank only a few miles from Pafos. Today, the White Star lies cushioned by seaweed and rocks at a depth of between 14 and 18 metres. A winter storm split up the wreck into two pieces, causing the ship's bow to be scattered like a jigsaw puzzle on the ocean floor. The shallow location and excellent visibility combined with the swift descent make this a relaxing dive, which is also suitable for beginners. Further diving tips The rocky coast off Pafos has lots to offer when it comes to land and boat dives. Experienced divers should have no problem organising their own individual, unguided land dives. Wreck-diving enthusiasts will be thrilled by the remains of the Vera К with her overgrown archways nearby or with the Greek freighter Achileas and its propeller, which is covered by a plethora of bronze sponges. Explorers will be lured into the many caves and concealed grottos which are embedded in the jagged underwater landscape of Pistol Bay. Lovers of natural beauty will be enchanted with the flora and fauna of the Roman Walls: Broadnosed pipefish, hermit crabs, octopuses and cuttlefish dart among the ancient remains in fairly shallow waters - incidentally also a great location for a night dive. The unrivalled Amphora Cave needs to be mentioned, featuring ceilings and walls peppered with encrusted amphora.

The Mediterranean monk seal inhabits this wonderful stretch of coastline, which can only be reached by boat.
