A group of 31 Syrian migrants were picked up near Kato Pyrgos late Monday.
Despite the bad weather, their vessel had docked in occupied Limnitis from where the passengers were taken to Pyrgos.
Among the Syrians on the boat were a family with two young children aged 5 and 6 and 27 men.
The migrants were taken to the Polis Chrysochous police station.
Later in the day they are expected to be taken to the reception centre at Kokkinothrimithia in Nicosia.
