Dive Sites

Our great location makes Dive Vision Malta one of the most convenient and relaxed centres for diving on the island of Malta. Especially given we are only five minutes drive away from one of the top diving areas, the marine reserve of Cirkewwa, with its two wrecks.

Vis á vis to the dive center is the small island of Comino with its numerous, well known dive sites. The island of Gozo can also be reached straight from our bay, within a fifteen minutes boat ride.

When the weather doesn't allow boat diving, we can reach our little sister island Gozo in no time by ferry, as our center is just five minutes away by car from the ferry terminal. Of course we also offer regular trips to the spectacular wreck of the "Um El Faroud". The Lebanese tanker, with its impressive length of 110 meters, lies at a depth of up to 38 meters and therefore still within recreational limits.
