Description

Mosquito Fighter Bomber wreck Known as the De Havilland Mosquito, this British twin-engine, two-seat multipurpose aircraft primarily served as a fighter-bomber during its operational period. Remarkable for its construction, the Mosquito was predominantly made of wood, except for its aluminium tail, a feature that made it stand out among other aircraft of its era. The site’s average depth is around 42 meters, making it a deep boat dive. Divers visiting the Mosquito Fighter Bomber wreck can expect to encounter an intriguing piece of World War II history, set against a backdrop of sandy seabed and small nearby reefs Bristol Blenheim Bomber wreck The Bristol Blenheim Bomber wreck near Malta is a significant dive site for divers, offering a unique opportunity to explore a piece of World War II history. This light bomber aircraft, built by the Bristol Aeroplane Company and operated by the British Royal Air Force, met its fate during a mission to Kefalonia, Greece. On December 13, 1941, it was attacked by an Italian enemy aircraft, causing damage to its port engine. The pilot had to ditch the plane in the sea near Malta, and fortunately, the crew survived with minor injuries. Located about 500 meters off Xrobb l-Ghagin on the east coast of Malta, the wreck lies upright on a seabed of sand and small reefs at a depth of 42 meters. It is a challenging dive site due to its depth and the occasional strong currents. Notable features of the wreck include mostly intact wings and radial engines. The starboard engine still has a bent propeller, while the port engine propeller is missing. The cockpit cover is also absent, and the rear fuselage has broken off, lying a few meters away from the main wreckage, upside down and mostly buried in sand. St. Michael wreck The St. Michael wreck, located at Zonqor Point in Marsaskala on the southeastern coast of Malta, is a popular dive site known for its marine biodiversity. This former tugboat, originally working in the Grand Harbour of Valletta, was purposely scuttled in May 1998 along with another tugboat, Number 10, to create an artificial reef and a scuba diving attraction. The St. Michael wreck is about 20 meters long and lies upright on a flat sandy bottom at a depth of 22 meters, with the uppermost part at around 17 meters. It is situated approximately 15 meters from the reef. When the visibility is good, the wreck can be seen from the reef, although visibility in Marsaskala Bay may vary. The Tugboat 10, positioned about 50 meters west from the stern of St. Michael and closer to the reef, is usually visited on the same dive. The site offers an excellent opportunity for medium-depth wreck dives and is also a good spot for underwater photography due to the marine life and the structure of the wreck itself.
