From Spring to Autumn we run regular diving trips to Malta. You can join us for a long weekend of diving in the crystal clear Mediterranean waters, or stay for longer and make a proper holiday of it. Malta is suitable for all levels of divers from the very experienced to those who wish to complete their open water certification course.
Malta is regarded by the dive community as the best places in the Mediterranean to dive as it has great visibility, plenty of sunshine, loads of fascinating wrecks, and superb underwater topography.
Only a few hours from the UK with loads of UK airports to depart from, you can be in Malta in as little as a few hours.
