Despite its small size, Malta can provide one of the best ways to experience via discovering its underwater treasures through scuba diving! And there is a ton of water since Malta is just a few islands surrounded by, what else? Water! So on this day of diving, I got outfitted with gear, loaded it up on the vehicle, and then we were off to go catch the ferry to go from the island of Malta to the island of Gozo. Gozo is the other inhabited island (other than capital island, Malta) that is just north of Malta. So basically, if I didn’t go scuba diving, I would not have had the chance to go see the other island. It’s kind of like with me scuba diving on the Canary Island of Gran Canaria – without diving, I would have not seen other parts of the island.
On this shore dive or more like jump in from the edge, it was a wreck dive which means plenty of wildlife to see as long as everyone keeps their eyes open for anything that sticks out. That’s the key with scuba diving because otherwise, all you see is just mainly water and “stuff.”
Tip: The water is cold as what you can expect? It’s the Mediterranean. The water is always cold so either wearing dry suits or thick wetsuits is a MUST. It reminds me of the rest of the Mediterranean such as Costa del Sol, Barcelona, Nice, and Athens where the water is quite cold for diving unless it’s the summer time which is when the water warms up a bit. And even then, you still need some thickness on that wetsuit.
