DIVING

Rated as one of the cleanest waters in the Mediterranean Sea, it is not hard to understand why diving is so popular on the Maltese Islands. Calm and warm waters offering excellent visibility and relative
safety make Malta ideal for first-time divers and beginners. For the more experienced divers, there are plenty of challenging dives to choose from. You are spoilt for choice with natural harbours, bays, sheltered creeks, cliffs, reefs and wartime wrecks. The World War II planes and ship wrecks, the Statue of Our Lady, the Coral Cave in Gozo and the stunning Santa Maria Caves in Comino are
among the favourite dive sites and boast a stunning mix of underwater life that make our islands a very unique dive destination. Thanks to our sunny weather and plenty of light, the visibility is more than 30 metres, which makes Malta and Gozo a dream destination for underwater photographers. To increase the excitement up one notch, you can try a night dive or dive deeper to 30 or 40 metres so that you can experience a new dimension of colours that appear almost fluorescent by torchlight.
