Discover Scuba Diving in Malta! Enjoy a fantastic underwater experience and discover what SCUBA diving is all about.
The perfect introduction to scuba diving that only takes a day to complete, get to know the kit and learn the basics of scuba diving on this 2-hour course in the shallow waters around the Maltese shoreline. Better than practising in the pool, you'll get two open water dives and a chance to experience the diverse marine flora and fauna that make this Meditteranean archipeligo one of the best scuba locations in Europe!
A small Mediterranean island, Malta is one of only three inhabited islands in the Maltese archipeligo. One of Europe's most celebrated scuba diving locations due to its impressive wrecks, shallow reefs and abundant marine life, warm seas and clear visibility all year round make it the perfect location for beginner divers and advanced divers alike. With diving sites range in depth from 6 to 70m, weak currents and colourful natural features make it accessible for total novices, too - with iconic sites like Maori, Tug Boats, and Mini Blue Hole popular dive sites.
A three-hour Discover Scuba Diving session, learn basic underwater skills and head out into the open water for two introduction dives. The first step to qualifying as an Open Water PADI certified diver, watch a short PADI Discover Scuba video and get fitted into your equipment - learning how to use the breathing equipment. With your instructor, you will participate in a detailed dive briefing and you’ll enter the water for your scuba adventure. Initially, you will spend some time in shallow water practising some exciting new skills, after this you and your instructor will enjoy a beautiful, relaxing underwater tour. Your PADI Pro will provide you with all the basic scuba gear you’ll use including a mask, snorkel, fins, regulator, buoyancy control device, dive gauges and a tank - included in the price.
Malta has a hot, dry summer and a short, cool winter. Some consider the climate here to be the best in the world. Air temperatures average between 10-15°C/50-59°F in January and 21-30°C/70-83°F in July. The warm Mediterranean waters around Malta provide a great variety of fauna, flora and fish, whilst the excellent visibility is ideal for underwater photography.
