Zenobia to be decorated for Christmas

Dive enthusiasts will on Sunday be decorating the Zenobia wreck, resting 42 metres underwater near the Larnaca coast.

The annual Zenobia wreck Christmas tree decorating will feature a free dive, where non-toxic, insoluble ornaments will decorate the shipwreck, which will then be removed at the end of the event so as to keep the underwater habitat intact. The event will be followed by a Christmas feast and celebration.

The “Queen Zenobia” vessel will depart for the wreck at 10am from Larnaca marina, the owner of the wreck, A.A.K. Larnaca Napa Sea Cruises, announced on Friday.

The MS Zenobia, named one of the top ten wreck diving sites in the world, capsized in the Mediterranean Sea near Larnaca in June 1980 during its maiden voyage, and now rests on her port side 42 metres underwater attracting thousands of divers every year.
