http://www.koronatours.com/dynamic.php?id=1

or you could charter your own boat:

I don't think you will be short of options: there are lots of boat trips operating out of Larnaca and other Cypriot seaside places.

Hi my friend,
I suggest that when you reach Larnaca and walk to the Marina you will find different sailing ships, you choose the one you think is best and book it for the following day. It is much better this way because you can get in the ship, talk to the captain, and see the prons and cons.
I suggest not to hurry and get panicky.
Also there is a shipwreck that I know called "Zenovia" very popular to tourists.
I tried to check through different sites for you, and ended up to the one below:

Even if I put this site, I still believe that you get to Larnaca and book from there.
Hope this helps you.

Zenon of Kition, Stoically Yours.

by Trillian2005

This tip is not about Zenon, son of Agreophon, who was a native of the Greek town of Caunus in lower Asia Minor. He moved to Philadelphia (in Egypt, not in the USA) and became a private secretary to Apollonius, the finance minister to Ptolemy II Philadelphus (who happened to be one of my ancestors) in the 3rd century BC.

This tip is about Zenon of Kition, a.k.a. Larnaca. He was a Hellenistic Stoic philosopher from Kition, Cyprus, the son of a merchant and a student of Crates of Thebes, the most famous Cynic living at that time. Zenon was a merchant until he was 42, when he got bored with his job and, as a result, started the Stoic school of philosophy. None of Zenon's works have survived, which is a pity, especially for all those of us who are stoic readers. However, his teachings have been passed on, including his main concept that "tranquility can best be reached through indifference to pleasure and pain".

Zenon was described as a haggard, tanned person, living a spare, ascetic life. You can admire a statue of this handsome guy in front of the Larnaca cultural center.

Zenon died around 264 BC. Laertius reports about his death: "As he left the school, he tripped, fell, and broke a toe. Hitting the ground with his hand, he cited words: "I am approaching, why are you calling me?". Since the Stoic sage was expected to do the appropriate thing and Zenon was very old at the time, he felt it appropriate to die, so he went home and strangled himself.

During his lifetime, Zenon received boatloads of appreciation for his philosophical and pedagogical teachings. Zenon was honored with the golden crown, and a tomb was built in honor as a result of his moral influence on the youngsters of his era.

The Zenon crater on the Moon is named after him. And now that I've been in Larnaca and took a photo of the Zenon statue there, my next destination will be the Moon to photograph the Zenon crater.

A very fine selection.

I have spoken in other parts of my VT pages about the bakeries of Greece and Cyprus, which i simply love. From small village one man operations to large chains, the standard seems to be uniformly high. I suppose the market forces of competition ensure this.

We popped into this place for a snack one lunchtime, and I was absolutely staggered by the selection of breads, cakes pastries and my favourite, the savouries. Some things you might like to try are spanikopitta (a spinach snack in pastry), louganikopitta (Greek equvalent of the sausage roll and delicious) or tyropitta (cheese in pastry). there are various types of tyropitta including one made with a "fresh" cheese, which is sort of like cream cheese and almost sweet in it's taste, they are beautiful. All these are served piping hot at about 80 cents - £C1 each. Two of them would make a filling lunch, enough to tide you over until the inevitable evening blowout.

This particular bakery, Perseas, is in the area of Droxia (pronounced Drosha) on the way to Agios Georgios, but I saw several of the chain around town and can thoroughly recommend them.

OK - but definitely not Irish.

Being originally from Northern Ireland myself, I have watched with some interest the rise and rise of the "Irish" theme pub all over the world from Berlin to Phnom Penh and I have to say that most of them bear about as much resemblance to an Irish pub as a penny farthing bicycle does to a lobster. Sorry, folks, but a couple of Guinness posters does not an Irish pub make.

Anyway, the Bailey is one such place, decked out with curios and posters with an Irish theme. Apart from that it is just a typical Finikoudes (Larnaca searont) bar, pleasant as it is. Service is good, and they have a menu including several "British" breakfast options. There is the obligatory outside sitting area where you can see and be seen. A pint of Keo (local) beer runs £C 2:20 which is about right for the area.

OK but nothing spectacular.
