    SCUBA in Malta

    by abdoujarapov Updated Apr 4, 2011

    I go to Malta nearly every year. I like the freedom to do whatever you want, within reason, when diving. The sea is always warm (compared to England) and the visibility usually exceptional. The Maltese Government actively promotes diving as a tourist attraction. There are new wrecks appearing all the time. The sealife is as good as anywhere in the Med. The underwater topography is simply stunning. The dives can be as deep or as shallow as your experience allows. There is a hyperbaric facility on the island. There are dozens of dive schools and I don't know if I'm allowed to reccomend any on this site.

    Equipment: You don't need to take anything as everything is available to hire. However I like to use my own equipment, renting only lead and tanks. The airlines are getting much more accomodating about weght allowances for sports gear.

    Scuba Diving - My friend's photos

    by Elly01 Written Oct 19, 2007

    These photos were taken by my friend Gillian. She has taken them on her many visits to Malta. As you can see she enjoys scuba diving - I would find it clastophobic and I would panic !!!

    Equipment: You will need to take diving course at the many diving schools there are around the Maltese Islands.

    Diving in Malta

    by tophat30 Updated Mar 16, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Maltese Islands’ clear blue Mediterranean sea is ideal for scuba diving and is highly accessible by relatively every area of the Islands. All three Islands offer excellently unique diving experiences with reefs, caves and wrecks to make the dive one of the most interesting ones in the Mediterranean.

    The calmness of the sea makes for excellent visibility and the wildlife danger risk is extremely low, creating an ultimate location for first time divers and beginners. For the more experienced divers, there are various sites that include archaeological artefacts, some from WWII, some even dating back to the Roman era.

    The depths of the dives vary, from the very shallow 12-metre Ghar Lapsi dive to Lantern Point, which takes divers to an underwater tunnel that leads down well over 50 metres.
    There are several types of scuba diving courses & scuba diving activities offered by locally licensed diving schools. Divers need to complete a medical statement form prior to any diving indicating fitness to dive. All schools provide the service of a doctor and the price for such a service rarely exceeds €5. Medicals from other countries are acceptable, provided the diving centre is presented with a copy.
    Depending on the school, rates for initial open water courses vary from €280 - €360. Single dives arranged by the school for experienced divers range from €23 – €35. Gear for a single dive ranges from €8 - €12.

    Equipment: Divers who wish to dive without accompaniment 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). It is always recommended to check with the diving centre as to where would be suitable to dive, depending on weather conditions and experience.

    Scuba Diving Galore !

    by Elly01 Written Feb 21, 2007

    In Malta and even in Gozo there are various outlets where one can rent equipment to go scuba diving.

    Equipment: I am sure that they will equip you with everything just make sure you follow a qualified course though. I believe it is about Lm100 to do a basic course.

    Scuba Diving in Malta

    by Bilimari Written Feb 5, 2006

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The water is just so beautiful in Malta that I cannot even come close to put it in words, and it's a perfect place for underwater photography.
    Besides the fish and sharks, there are many wrecked ships and planes lying on the seabed where you can visit. I've heard that archaeological finds are very common, but you have to report it.

    I've never had to do this in US, Caribbeans, and Australia, but here in Malta, in addition to your divers ID, you have to show a medical health certificate before you dive.

    In early January, water was a little too cold for me that I ended up not diving, but I saw some hard core divers going under water.

    Divewise Malta is a PADI 5 star shop, located inside Westin hotel in St Julian's.
    They offer several diving packages including a trip to Gozo and Comino, PADI diving courses from open water to Instructor, and some specialty courses including Nitrox.

    Equipment: Your own equipment always makes the diving experiences easier and more comfortable, but sometimes you cannot bring your all gears to the overseas trip. Still, you know that you should bring your own mask, snorkel and fins at least, Divewise do offer gear rental for those who like to pack light. (I brought mask, snorkel, fins, regulator with octopus, boots and gloves with me, just in case.)

    Available equipment rental:
    Mask, snorkel, fins, boots, BCD, regulator, wet suit (shorty and full), air tanks, etc.
