Malta

I have just had a very relaxing few days in Malta with a group of friends and my 2 children and nephew. It was the kids first time out there so I decided to stay shallow and enjoy a few family dives......needless to say the youngest member logged the deepest depth at the bottom of Rozi!

We were diving with Maltaqua, my first time with them. A very professional and safe company to dive with, can recommend them.
They have their own apartments 100m away, with daily maid service. Guides were all instructors and group sizes 4-6 and dives planned according to the groups wishes and experience. Our guide was ex-army, a marine survival consultant, doing both oil rig work and survival in mid-ocean. His next group were to be 32 royal Marines taking their Ocean Diver course over 5 days. A nice guy.

We managed 9 dives which included a night dive at the Blue Grotto in the channel there, bringing Charlie up to 100 dives. That last dive was a 100 min shallow one at Anchor bay, taking in both sides of the now collapsed jetty, the anchor and the cave, with some good music in the background from the Popeye theme park!

Here are a few photos to start.......Cirkewwa.......

Blue Grotto

The dives here were to the helmet and cave and then to the Um el Faroud. The first dive we were joined by a couple and their guide, so we were a bit limited. Second dive was to the Faroud and we had a good look around the upper deck area with a short swim through it.

Excellent photos Sheelagh. I have a colleague here working on the earthquake claims who operates a Loss Adjusting practice in Valetta. I might just have to have an extended holiday to Malta !!! Has his own boat, wants to learn to dive and offered me accommodation. I said I'd think about it !!

Last time I went to Malta the diving was blown out all week. At least we had the rugby World cup !!
