As most of our clients already know on the 15th of March we decided that our beloved Dive Centre would close until further notice. However, we are keen on keeping our customers updated with what is going on with our Centre, our staff and even our furry friends!  (more…)

Malta’s Marine Life Part 4 – Red everywhere!

That’s a significant amount of RED

Colours change quite drastically within the different depths whilst diving. Red is the first colour to start changing the fastest.  Funny enough, the red looks brown to the naked eye and when under a spotlight, shines a beautiful bright red. (more…)

Non-Diving Courses during COVID-19

Stay home; stay safe! Don’t forget about these non-diving courses…

We know that during this difficult time, divers are limited to what they can do with regards to diving.

Malta’s Marine Life Part 2 – First sighting

There is in fact Marine life!

Where and what exactly lived in the Maltese waters? This was on my mind for the first 5 minutes of my first dive, then suddenly, the guide pointed out the first sighting of life underwater that was not grass or rock!

Long Hose

Long Hose Setup

Long hose setup

Have you ever looked around you when you are on a dive trip to your favourite dive destination or local dive site, and see divers diving with this weird looking hose wrapped around their body and a sort of necklace around their neck, wondering why they have that? What is the purpose of it?
