Malta - Amazing Diving Location

Hello everybody,

I’m new here, but wanted to share my passion for diving, in particular diving in Malta. This amazing little country just south from Italy is really a dream destination to do some diving.

There are about 60 different diving spots in Malta (and the 2 other islands; Gozo and Comino)
Some of the sights under water are the Maria Statue and the wreck of th MV Rozi.

I even started a blog about diving in Malta (in Dutch). For people who might be interested, you can find my blog on duikeninmalta.nl/

Anybody else ever went diving on Malta?? What was your experience?
Look forward to hear from somebody who shares my passion.

Welcome to Dive Buddy Enrique, Malta has a lot of history and as a result a lot of wrecks. I remember watching a video about the German’s dropping mines during the day and Malta sweeping them at night. My father was on a mine sweeper and he told me and Malta learned that "any ship can be a mine sweeper once" :(
Up on the right tool bar you will see Scuba Earth, I added the Azure Window dive site for Malta awhile back, the Rozi is listed, divebuddy.com/divesite.aspx?DiveSiteID=1357 be sure to go there and add your comments and photos if you have some.
I don’t see the Maria Statue so here is your chance to add the site plus any others you’ve dove there. Are any of the dive shops listed who you used?

Hey,

I went diving in Gozo in October and loved it! We stuck to Gozo as that is where we were staying but were impressed with the variety and number of different sites. Plus my first time seeing seahorses!

Will definitely go back to explore Malta and Comino. Will sort out my photos and edit the go pro footage I took and share.

I’ll be going there next week and plan to do a few dives. Any suggestions, advice or comments would be welcome.
