Malta & Gozo

Scuba diving in Malta & Gozo is highly rated by divers worldwide and a prime destination for diving holidays.This is no surprise considering the numerous dive sites that offer a challenge at different skill levels. Scuba divers will encounter dive sites with beautifully coloured coral reefs and dark caves reaching deep into some of Gozo’s tall cliffs. Not to mention a number of sea wrecks which over the years have become the habitat marine life.

Diving Highlights

Our plan will be to do 2 dives per day, either by boat or directly form the shore.

Our itinerary highlights include diving famous wrecks such as the P29, The Blue Hole, Santa Maria Caves and Reqqa Reef.


The P29 wreck dive is done around the 62m long, 16m high and 7m wide ex German Kondo class minesweeper that was deliberately sunk in 2007. The P29 is situated 150 m from the coast off Cirkewwa Point and is easily accessible from the shore and marked by a buoy. You will find some amazing swim troughs, however the smaller and tighter areas are not recommended unless you are experienced in wreck penetration.

The Famous Blue Hole.

The Blue Hole dive site in Dewjra overlooks the beautiful Azure Window and starts in a fantastic 10m wide inland sea pool which leads into a large crevice and through to the open sea. Once you start your dive you will see a natural rock arch with clear blue waters that is your doorway leading to the open sea.

After passing the Arch you will swim through the tunnel with very nice rock formations, you will discover fantastic marine life such as parrot fish, Schools of Bream, Moray Eel, Lobster, Octopus and much more.

Heading towards the reef wall you have to swim through a large vertical crack in the reef (The Chimney) starting at 18m and then go up to the coral garden located at 4m. If you do not wish to swim out to the open sea you can turn back and visit the cave at the far end of the Blue Hole.

Santa Maria Caves.

The Santa Maria Caves are located on the north side of Comino and this is a very popular dive site due to its fascinating cave systems.

Divers come here year after year and thus, arriving early to avoid the crowds is recommended. There are 10 caves known to divers as Santa Maria Caves and they each have their own particular beauty. Some of them offer great swim troughs, some with large underwater tunnels while others have fascinating views into the blue through their entrance.

The caves are quite shallow and some of the caves are even half above water, also ideal for snorkelers. The shallow Santa Maria Caves are rich in marine life and you can spot Nudibranch, octopus, crabs, spiny lobster, eels, mullets, shrimp, damselfish and morays.

Reqqa Reef

Diving at Reqqa Reef you will see large groupers, dentex, rays as well as barracudas and if you look by the boulders you can also find lobsters and morays.

In the Reqqa Reef dive you descend along a large wall that runs down to over 60 meters covered in sponges with a lot of small fish present. You can choose to stop on the sandy reef bottom before the drop at about 25m.

After the dives theres plenty of time to explore the beautiful coastline and the magnificent beaches, before heading back for an evening BBQ.
