A few words

About Us

My name is Alan and I am the lead instructor and owner of DIVERS FIRST. We are a PADI recreational facility based in sunny Nicosia, which offers a variety of PADI scuba diving courses in Cyprus. I caught the diving bug in 2010 in a freezing gravel pit in Birmingham (UK) where I completed my PADI open water course. Today, I am a PADI Open Water and SDI instructor, a PADI Tech Deep Instructor, a PADI Advanced Trimix diver and a TDI Trimix diver. As a result, my extensive diving knowledge and skills, in combination with my military and medical background, ensure that you are in really safe hands.

During my dive travels, I have experienced the eerie sights of the scuttled German fleet in Scapa Flow, the beauty of Eagle Rays and Reef Sharks in the Maldives, the ancient outline of an elephant inside an underwater cave in Crete, as well as many other dive sites around the world.

Cyprus diving conditions and things to bring

Cyprus diving is definitely all year round with a usual sea temperature of 16o C in winter (Nov – Mar) and upwards of 25o C in summer (Apr – Oct). With this in mind, you need to bring warm weather clothing, a dry suit (or consider a PADI dry suit course before coming to your Cyprus winter holidays) in the Winter. However, in the Summer, you will either need a short wetsuit or a thin layered wetsuit unless doing long technical dives, and of course don’t forget the sunscreen.

About Cyprus

Cyprus is a wonderful place to go on diving adventures or to take a PADI scuba diving course but if you can make time to soak up the Cypriot atmosphere along the way even better.

Cyprus is bursting with history, ancient and modern, the people are welcoming and friendly and the food is fantastic!!! The scenery is varied and breathtaking in different parts of the country. So if you want an unforgettable holiday, make sure DIVERS FIRST is your first call.
