Wreck Diving

Wreck Dives

The Maltese islands archipelago offers many opportunities for wreck diving. There are many wrecks at various depths resting on the bottom. From 14m such as Destroyer HMS MAORI to 100m such as ORP KUJAWIAK.

At the bottom lie historical wrecks as well as commercial ones embedded as an attraction for divers. Many of them are accessible from the shore, but some can only be reached by boat.

Accessible directly from shore on Gozo we have 4 wrecks. All at a depth of 40m. They are set on the bottom as an attraction for divers. They are MV Karwela, MV Cominoland, MV Xlendi and the newest MV Hephaestus.

In Malta, the patrol ship P29 and the tug Rozi lie at the Cirkewwa ferry port, and in southern Malta, the giant tanker Um El Faroud. Also accessible from shore, we have the tugboat Tug Boat II and the destroyer Maori.
