Diving into the Blue Sea…

Malta’s clear Mediterranean sea is ideal for scuba diving. In fact the Maltese islands are blessed with a variety of reefs, caves and wrecks; the ideal habitat for fish and also a pleasant spot for some great diving in the Mediterranean.

A great advantage of the Maltese waters is the calmness and clarity of the surrounding sea which offer optimal visibility. Besides the risk of encountering dangerous fish is extremely low around Malta; thus creating the best conditions for first time divers.

Malta Diving

For the experienced divers there are plenty of challenging dives to choose from. The depths of the dives vary, from the very shallow 12-metre Ghar Lapsi dive to Lantern Point, which has an underwater tunnel leading down to a well over 50 metres.

If you’d love to experience this underwater adventure there are several types of diving courses and activities offered by locally licensed diving schools. Before plunging in the waters divers need to complete a medical statement form indicating they are fit to dive. All diving schools in Malta provide the service of a doctor who provides certification at a small fee. Medicals from other countries are acceptable, provided that the diving centre is presented with a copy.

Divers who wish to dive unaccompanied are required to have a buddy as well as to present a PADI Advanced Open Water or equivalent certification by other agencies (e.g. CMAS Two Star Diver, BSAC Sport Diver, SSI Advanced Open Water, etc).
Prior to deciding on a diving spot it is recommended that you check with the diving centre. They can give you a knowledgeable opinion of suitable diving spots depending on weather conditions and your level of expertise.
