Wreck Dive, Marsaskala
At this dive site, you will be able to experience two wrecks on one dive, the Tugboat 10 and the St.Micheal. The Tugboat 10 is the smaller wreck of the two. Tug 10 is a 16m long wreck and lies upright on a flat sandy bottom with a max depth of 21m. 90 degrees off the bow, lies the St. Micheal. The St. Micheal is a 20m long tugboat, also a former working tugboat in Grand Harbor of Valletta. Both wrecks were sunk in 1998.
The Tugboat 10 & the St. Micheal are one of the few shallower wrecks in Malta and suitable for Open Water Divers.
The Marine Life
On both wrecks, the chance that you find a lot of Nudibranchs is really high. So when diving the tugs, bring your camera if you’re a fan of marine life.
You must be certified to dive to a depth of 18 meters to dive this site. We would also recommend Nitrox Diver or being an Advanced Diver.
