Snorkeling in Malta and Gozo
The Maltese Islands are an archipelago of six islands of which, Malta, Gozo and Comino are inhabited. They are situated in the centre of the Mediterranean, 58 miles from Sicily and 180 miles from Libya, and conditions are ideal for diving all year round. In our site you will find information about Snorkeling in Malta and Gozo, Pleasure dives in Malta, Scuba Diving Zurrieq, Gozo Blue hole and more.
The waters in Malta and Gozo are some of the most limpid and clear in the world. Visibility is excellent down to around 30 metres. So the Maltese Islands are a dream destination for underwater photography. There is not much in the way of large creatures to see, but the abundance of Octopus, Cuttlefish, Stonefish and other small creatures will keep most divers in Malta happy, particularly on night dives, plus read about HMS Maori and Malta scuba diving centre.
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. PADI diving instruction in the Mediterranean 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.
