Santa Maria Caves Comino
Malta is the largest island in the archipelago, measuring 27kms by 14.5kms. Malta has neither rivers nor mountains, but is characterised by a series of low, flat-topped hills with terraced fields on their slopes. Malta's coastline is well indented with natural and man-made harbours, bays, creeks, several sandy beaches and rocky coves. Scuba Diving Lantern Point is a prime interest to all considering Malta diving. The Islands offer excellent diving for beginners, experienced, technical and even cave divers. With their natural harbours, bays, sheltered creeks, cliffs, reefs and scattering of wrecks, the Maltese Islands invite you to explore. The possibilities are endless. With Malta dive sites just a stone's throw away from each other, you will be able to explore a variety of underwater worlds.
Some Malta diving centres offer basic certification programs that last several days to a week. Although the intensive weekend programs are quite feasible, many feel that basic scuba diving courses spread out over a few weeks will help beginners learn the skills better. Scuba diving does involve new skills and to learn them all during one full weekend may be too much for some people.
From May - October the water temperature around Malta and Gozo is around 20 C and a 5mm wetsuit (with gloves and boots) is recommended. Santa Maria Caves Comino - Water temperatures are dropping down to 15 C from November - April and a 7mm semi-dry suit with long johns and jacket (giving 14mm on the core body) is recommended (don't forget hood, boots and gloves).
