Scuba Diving Malta Gozo Comino covers 97 dive sites around the Maltese Islands. Artificial reefs, diver attractions, shipwrecks at varying depths, dramatic drop offs, undulating reefs, caves, tunnels, arches and a huge range of marine life make these beautiful Mediterranean islands a sheer delight for divers.
This comprehensive book is the diver’s key to this rich variety of diving. Based on the author’s experience over a period of almost twenty five years, it is a clearly laid out, A4-sized, full-colour, 224 page guide which takes you on a trip around the seas of Malta.
The book features 45 shore dive sites, each illustrated with an aerial photograph and easy-to-follow 3D map. The most favourable entry and exit points, depths and underwater landscapes are shown, helping to make each dive as stress free and safe as possible. And there is a selection of 52 boat dives with information and history for each site. Hundreds of supporting photographs cover the marine life, wrecks, artificial reefs, local knowledge and places of interest.
A book for all, Scuba Diving Malta Gozo Comino is suitable for experienced independent divers, those who require accompanied diving and beginners. Highly illustrated as well as informative, this guide makes an ideal coffee table book as much as it does a reference book or beautiful souvenir.
**A FREE printed insert included with the book updates some key changes to dive sites which happened post-publication: Tugboat 2 at Exiles (St. Julian’s Point), Sliema has moved into the reef; and the Azure Window, Dwejra (Gozo), which collapsed in 2017, changing several classic dive routes in that area.

Feedback from readers
‘We had a fantastic week diving in Malta, this was our first truly independent dive holiday and also our first time in Malta but thanks to the quality of the information in your book I was able to confidently lead 16 dives around 13 sites that I had never dived before, including a night dive on the Maori.As I said in my first mail to you, this book was the inspiration for our trip to Malta and following such a successful outing we will certainly be regular visitors to the Islands, armed with the book with the goal of exploring every available site.’– Peter, West Sussex.
