Wrecks

The Maltese islands are a wreck divers paradise that caters for all levels of divers,

The position of Malta in the Mediterranean Sea, has led to a heavy ship traffic since early ages. While Malta remained neutral during WWI, the island held a vital role in the second world war. Hence many of Malta’s historic shipwrecks are related to this period of modern history.

The tourism authority of Malta have also played their part today, now there are many wrecks that have been scuttled purposely to create artificial reefs , The Maltese islands are a wreck divers paradise that caters for all levels of divers, from recreational to Technical divers. With shipwrecks all around the island, it allows diving any day of the year as there is always one shore that is protected from the winds.

Amongst the shipwrecks sunk on purpose for dive tourism, some make exceptional dives. Here is a selection of dive sites not to be missed with incredible underwater photography opportunities

Diving The Maltese Islands With Paradise Diving

Generally and weather permitting, May to October allows us to provide three boat dives a day, diving off Malta, Gozo, Comino and Cominetto. We return to the beach after each dive so you can have lunch with your not diving companions. The dive boats depart from our own jetty on our beach making this the most convenient diving experience that satisfies all.

Dive boats will be limited during the winter months, we generally dive from the shore at Malta and Gozo sites with limited boat dives to Comino. Visiting Wrecks Reefs and Caverns
