Lady Thetis Vessel (Artificial Reef) Diving Site
The Lady Thetis wreck is one of two wrecks that make up the Dasoudi Marine Protected Area (MPA), alongside the Costandis wreck, with both sunk in 2014 to create an artificial reef and enrich marine diversity, further assisted by a series of concrete structures sunk at the MPA in 2016.

The vessel was originally a coastal passenger vessel named Reiher (built in West Germany in 1953) and then a Cypriot passenger ship. She now lies just 200 metres from the Costandis wreck, making the site perfect for scooter diving, as well as for any level of diver and especially as an introduction to wreck diving.
Offering easy swim throughs and penetration options for the more adventurous diver, the wreck sank in a such a way that she is now ‘dug’ into the seabed, offering a deeper depth inside, close to the keel. Other points of interest include the deck with the remains of small tables that anemones now favour - a throwback to the vessel’s time as a small cruise ship, as well as the windowed dining room. Colourful sea plants now colonise the staircase.

Marine life at the reef is rich and varied, with species including bream, damselfish, lionfish, moray eels, nudibranch, parrotfish, sea slugs and tube worms, as well as amberjacks that pass through seasonally.
