Cydive is the largest and longest running Dive Shop in Paphos, Cyprus. We are the First 5 * CDC and a National Geographic Teaching Centre. Cydive was founded in 1978 and is currently under the Management of Mr Photos Socratous and his lovely wife Julie, whom have now owned the dive centre for 13 years.


During the past 36 years our services and activities have been expanding in numbers, and we are now able to cater to the needs of the vast majority of our customers.

From Snorkelling trips to Beginners courses, from Guided Dives to Professional Education Programs, Cydive will be able to provide you with the assistance and the professionalism that you deserve.


Our Services are oriented to people of all ages; in fact we have programs for kids as young as 8 year old, together with excursions suitable for more mature clients.


All our activities are supervised and you can count on our Highly Qualified Staff to ensure your safety and fun at all times.


We have 100 sets of rental equipment, and each item is removed from service every two years, and fully serviced every six months to guarantee that you dive always with safe and efficient gear.


An Air/Nitrox filling station allows you your choice of gas and mixes and our 170 sets of cylinders of various sizes (from 5 to 18 litres) in Aluminium and Steel, will guarantee that you will always find a full tank of the size you are most comfortable with.


Our Dive Sites can be reached either by boat or by car. 


Cydive has a fleet of three Boats that will take you quickly and comfortably to your dive site.


Cydive I and Cydive II are fibreglass purpose built dive boats at 10m & 13m long fitting up to 20 divers with 300hp engines allowing a max speed of 20 Knots.


Cydive III is a wooden Motor/Sail vessel at 13m long fitting up to 25 divers. Whilst she is slower, her look is stylish and affords you with a relaxed comfortable sail.

They are all equipped with state of the art training materials, computers and audiovisuals, complemented by the latest PADI Training Products on DVD.
