Diving In Malta

Malta's diving culture has increased considerably over recent years, with numerous PADI Dive schools springing up all over Malta and Gozo. Malta, besides being renowned for its typical Meditteranean climate and warm seas which varies from approximately 15 C in the winter season to 28 C during the summer season, has cemented its reputation in the niche market of diving, with numerous caves and wrecks available for divers, both recreational and technical. Wrecks include submarines, aeroplanes, destroyers, oil tankers and other vessels from the World War II.
