Reviews of the First Edition of Diving Gozo & Comino

‘This is a very good guide… One of the joys of diving in Gozo, and which justifies the use of the term “underwater playground” in the title, is that it is one of those rare places where divers can pack a 4×4 or van with kit, tanks and friends and take off for whichever sites take their fancy. They also need a reliable guide-book – this new one deserves its place in the glovebox’– Diver

‘A well put together and good-looking guidebook that will be a useful tool for anyone planning on diving Gozo and Comino. It is the sort of book that first-timers, as well as those experienced in diving here, will want to have on their shelves’–

‘Richard crams his book with everything you need… an impressively well thought-out guide to visiting these islands. The question is not why should you buy this guide, but why wouldn’t you?’–

Author of Diving Gozo & Comino

Richard Salter is an instructor and dive guide who started diving the Maltese islands in 2004 since when he has amassed over 5000 dives, mostly on Gozo and Comino. After finding accurate information hard to come by and existing publications lacking, he started to draw his own dive sitemaps, so that he could show divers the best places to go, depending on the kind of diving they wished to pursue. He also learned some local history. Now he shares his knowledge so that others can safely enjoy all that Gozo and Comino offer.
