Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

It was a pleasure to participate to this trip. It was very intresting to hear about more seaturtles and we actually saw seaturtles Wallace and Bailey.

Luca picked us up from our hotel and made sure everything was okay. He also took pictures. We had a nice snorkeling moment and after that we went to eat pizza. And he also showed us the database of seaturtles and how it works. I recommend this trip!

Me and my girlfriend decided wanted to do something funny and exciting on our holiday. Neither of us had gone snorkling before. I myself am afraid of everything under water, so it was a tough choice to make. But i had read reviews on this trip, and i felt a little more safe knowing how well educated the staff was.

First we got picked up at our hotel, and that was very nice of them because out hotel wasn't originally listet as a hotel they did pick-ups on.

When we got there we got a tour of the workplace, followed by a presentation on turtles and the work they were doing. It was very educational and interesting. What they are doing are very amazing.

Next we got the needed equipment since we didn't have any our self. We drove to the snorkling spot. Out guide were always close if we needed help with anything. We got to see two turltes, it was a very cool experience.

We finished the trip with some pizza, and we got to learn how they identified the turtles. We had seen the turltes Wallace and Bailey :D

We had a wonderful afternoon learning about turtles and meeting Wallace (one of the local turtles). Our instructors Chiara and Luca were fantastic. They were both very knowledgeable and well qualified marine biologists.

We learned a lot about how to recognise different turtles, what they eat, the different types of turtle, how human behaviour is affecting turtles and how we can help to protect them before taking a swim out from the coast to try and spot some in the wild. (Turtles are not tagged so, as with all real wildlife encounters, meeting them is not guaranteed, but the instructors know their favourite hangouts).

We met Wallace on our trip - A curious green sea turtle -which was a wonderful experience and Luca was able to capture some great pictures of our encounter to preserve the memories, which he and Chiara shared with us over a delicious pizza in a local restaurant. It was my birthday and the team organised birthday candles for me which made the day even more special.

One of our favourite things about this experience was knowing that we would be in the care of marine biologists and that animal welfare would be a top priority. Some guides will bait the turtles by sprinkling lettuce on the surface. This practice is unsafe for the turtles, putting them more at risk of boat accidents and should be discouraged. By booking this tour you have a chance to see the turtles in a more responsible way, knowing that both you and the turtles are in safe hands.

Thank you for a fantastic experience, Tamara was excellent, she was the contact from the start advising us to complete the PADI information that was required.
On the day we were collected near to where we were staying and taken to the Dive shop, after a briefing we were given our wetsuits and taken to the beach. Tamara was there as our Dive Master and took us through what we needed to do, she was polite and professional throughout and really put the kids (19 and 16) at ease. We dived for about 40 minutes and saw lots of fish and some underwater statues, it was so good my son now wants to Dive now we are back home (although the North Sea will be a lot colder!).
Thanks again for an amazing experience

This snorkeling trip is powered by Cyprus Diving Center - a crew of multi languaged young people knowing what they are doing.

The booking could be performed without any problems and after arriving we were shown around the Diving Center. After that, Luca, our guide, professional diver and studied marine biologist, gave us a great overview of the turtles' world. Everything started with a highly interesting 30 minute presentation packed with information about turtles, their habitat and many more.
After that we received our professional snorkeling equipment and got introduced to it. Then, after a five minute car ride, the arrived at Green Bay, our snorkeling area.

Green Bay is known for the turtles, a fantastic snorkling area with a nice underwater topology, many fish, ancient looking columns and ... turtles. It didn't take long and then we found them: the turtles. It was a great experience to see these majestic animals within their natural habitat. There was no pushing or hurrying - we spent a very long time together Luca who explained everything.

After returning to the Diving Center we were invited to a fantastic local restaurant where we had an amazingly good tasting stove oven pizza and some drinks.

We will never forget this experience. Thanks for your great hospitality, the preparations for this trip and the wonderful hours that we could spend with you.

We did this snorkeling tour as a family with our two girls aged 9 and 11.

From the first contact to the last dive - only perfect!
You can see the fun the team has during diving but they always act very professionally - that's why I felt very safe the whole time.
I did my first wreck dives, checked out the sea turtles and had 4 amazing fun dives with the CDC Team.
Last but not least the backoffice organizaiton is very uncomplicated and professional. Many thanks for making my vacation a real amazing experience!

As in any business is not about the company is about professionals. And both Daniel and Ramin are great. Even though we had to fight bad weather, they didn't gave up on me, and worked the schedule as i managed to pass Open Waters PADI Certification. Ramin you were great supporting me with my ear problem, thank you dude! Daniel, you are the best motivator! You made me enjoy every second of the course, even with my often moments of frustration :) My respect!
I encourage every experienced or beginner diver to get to know these great people of Cyprus Diving Center!
