As I was approaching retirement towards the end of last year I thought I would have a go at scuba diving, the plan being to do the training over the winter months and dive properly after that, if I liked it. I arranged a “try dive” at Ponds Forge one Wednesday evening...

Wow. What an amazing wreck the Zenobia is in Larnaca bay, Cyprus. The water was 27 degrees and 30-40m viz. It’s 180 m long and lays on its side. Fantastic for penetrating and plenty to see on the outside. Massive trucks and machinery and lots of nooks and crannies to e...
