Diving in Malta

Scuba Diving in Malta & Gozo is a must!

Diving Malta

Scuba diving in Malta is a very popular for divers of all levels. There are many shore dives that offer impressive underwater rock formations, swim-throughs, caverns, shipwrecks and interesting marine life. Diving in Malta and Gozo should be on everybody’s to-do list!

While diving in Malta you will likely encounter groupers, various bream, parrotfishes, hermit crabs and scorpionfish to name a few. For those with a keen eye, the are several species of nudibranch along with octopus and moray eels hiding in the rocks.  

Popular Dive Sites in Malta & Gozo

One of the most famous and popular dives sites in Malta is Cirkewwa. Located off the north coast of Malta, this dive site boasts 2 shipwrecks, the P29 (patrol boat) and the MV Rozi (tug boat). These two shipwrecks are lying at similar depths; approx. 30m on the wreck decks. Therefore, both dives are suitable for divers with an advanced certification.

Cirkewwa is also a fantastic dive site for open water divers. An impressive feature at 14 – 18 metres is Cirkewwa Arch. This dive begins in a shallow area which leads you to a very dramatic and exciting underwater drop-off. Following the wall for 20 minutes will lead you to the large arch eroded into the underwater landscape.

This underwater topography and good visibility are what make Malta a great diving destination for underwater photography and night dives.

Other dive sites in Malta to mention are Ghar Lapsi (reef and cavern), the world renowned Um El Faroud shipwreck (oil tanker) and the HMS Maori (WWII shipwreck).

Gozo boasts The MV Karwela shipwreck (passenger ferry) for advanced divers and the Inland Sea, the Blue Hole (where the now collapsed Azure Window lies), Cathedral Cave, and Reqqa Point to name a few dives sites which are suitable for open water divers and upwards. If you’re not qualified in wreck diving – now could be the perfect time to learn!
