Diving the ZenobiaWritten by Jakob Jelling
The Zenobia, in surroundings of Cyprus, is a very interesting wreck for divers to meet due to its size as well as to good conditions in which it is, usually described as intact. The Zenobia was a ship which was sunk in 1980 after suffering problems in its computer controlled system area.
Divers who wish to meet this wreck would have to dive about 42 meters into water where it sleeps. An important part of it can be easily accessed and seen, although there are some areas where divers might find it almost impossible to be able to access them or explore them.
Once divers reach Zenobia, they are able to see a ferryboat with one hundred and eight loaded articulated lorries. Each Zenobia's lorry was transporting different cagos, and still some of them can be observed just way they were when ship was sunken. This way, divers who approach Zenobia's lorries could see cargos of objects such as toys, paint and eggs among many others.
The Zenobia's engine room is a legendary area among divers due to difficulty it presents for them to reach it and have access to it. Some divers have been able to access this area after going through many difficulties, and it is not advisable for divers who do not count with an important amount of experience on their past to try to explore this area.
