Dive Hub Shore

Dive Hub Shore

Just Add Diver

Our shore, located on the eastern shore of Northern Cyprus (Bogazi, Trikomo) ranges from 2, 5 to 8 metres. The dive site is eligible for discovery dives or long photography dives without worrying about the air consumption for experienced divers. The shallow waters of Bogazi transfer the sun rays to the bottom making it easy to capture nice and colourful photograph with different variety of sea species.

You will see stripped groupers, parrot fish, priest fish schools gathering around you with curiosity, squirrelfish, scorpion fish, crabs running around, colourful octopuses, and squids as well as the sponges and living rock corals. There is also a high possibility that you come across sea horses during August.

This is an excellent dive site for relaxing under the water, experiencing the underwater world for the first time and taking your time for the right capture of the creature you like to photograph.

Amphora Beach

Amphora Beach

Live The History

Cyprus Island has been a on the trade route in ancient times, which today makes the underwater of Northern Cyprus a natural underwater museum. As the name recalls, the dive site is full of ancient stone anchors and amphora resembling a natural underwater museum hidden in the waters of Bogazi (Trikomo, Iskele). This is a site eligible for even the least experienced divers, with no currents and with a maximum 15 metres depth.

To reach the Amphora Beach, we travel approximately 10 miles by boat from Dive Hub Iskele to to north east, to Bafra region where the dive site is located, and once we reach the dive site we enter the clear waters and descend to 8 metres rocky plateau rock formation covered with the Neptune grass. As we descend the 2 metres tall wall, we reach the sandy bottom of 14-15 metres and swim along the wall coming across an amphora or stone anchor on every step. In the ancient times, would carry several stone anchors to secure the vessel for the loading or unloading of cargo. To increase the cargo capacity, the anchors would often be thrown into the sea and additional cargo loaded in their place. Given the proximity of Bafra to the larger commercial port of Famagusta, it is evident that the ancients were very active commercially along this cost. Apart from the scattered ancient artefacts and anchors on the sandy bottom, the wall along the dive site is home for groupers, nudy branches and you may also come along to a sand ray relaxing on the posedonia oceanica or on the sandy bottom.

The dive site is a relatively long to finish in one dive, so you may want to see the whole dive site by diving there twice, to make sure you see every bit of ancient history lying under the blue waters of Bafra.
