Diving in the unique islands of Malta and Gozo will surely have experienced scuba divers and novices alike appreciating the many exciting diving opportunities around the archipelago. The Mediterranean Sea is renowned the world over for scuba diving thanks to its calm, clear, non-tidal waters that offer exceptional visibility. And Malta's isolated location away from the European mainland means its surrounding waters are particularly free from pollution.
