Description

During the Second World War, especially in 1941, Malta played a crucial role, largely due to its strategic location in the Mediterranean. The island was a pivotal base for Allied forces, and aircrafts were integral to its defense and offensive operations. Aircrafts not only defended the island against bombing raids but also provided cover for convoys attempting to resupply the beleaguered island. On this trip, you can touch the history of victories and defeats. Join a fascinating trip of two aircraft in Maltese waters! Bristol Beaufighter wreck Divers can explore the fascinating remnants of this World War II aircraft, including the engines, wheels, and other mechanical parts. Near the main body of the plane, the tail is located about 5 meters away. The site is also excellent for underwater photography, offering the chance to capture the entire plane, including body and wings, in a single frame. Airplane Wreck P2V Neptune The wreck lies about 500 metres off the shore of Baħar iċ-Ċagħaq on Malta’s northeast coast. Divers can explore the remains of the aircraft at a depth of 32 metres, resting on a seabed of sand and meadows of Posidonia sea grass. What remains of the Lockheed P2V Neptune aircraft are mainly parts of the fuselage, wings with engine covers and other wing parts partially buried in the sand nearby. Coral Gardens Coral Gardens, located off the seaside promenade of Sliema on Malta’s northeast coast, is a delightful shore dive site known for its scenic underwater topography and marine life. This dive site is characterized by its shallow reef, featuring valleys, canyons, gullies, and interesting rock formations. The presence of swim-through tunnels adds to the allure of the site, making it a fascinating location for exploration and underwater photography. With an average depth of around 5 meters and reaching a maximum of about 15 meters, Coral Gardens is accessible and suitable for divers of all levels, including beginners. The relatively shallow waters ensure good visibility, typically ranging from 10 to 30 meters, with an average of about 25 meters. The reef’s diverse marine life includes species such as crabs, amberjacks, lobsters, common octopuses, flying gurnards, Mediterranean damselfishes, painted combers, and discodoris or dotted seaslugs.

Important Information

  • To participate in unsupervised dives you must have an Advanced Open Water Diver (AOWD) certificate or equivalent and have a dive partner. This is required to ensure safety and compliance with diving regulations. If you do not meet these requirements, we can provide you with a certified instructor for an additional fee. Please note that advance notice is required to ensure instructor availability. If you do not have a complete set of equipment, we will recommend a dive centre to hire. If you need a guide (master, instructor) who speaks a specific language, we will recommend one. If the weather is not suitable for going out to sea by boat, we will offer a shore dive at an accessible location or wait until the weather is suitable for going out to sea by boat, or refund the payment.
