Wreck Dive Malta, Qawra Point, Malta
The Imperial Eagle used to work as a ferry and cargo ship operating between Malta and Gozo. The wreck is 45 m long and had a beam of 10 m. There are plenty of entry and exit points for penetration. This is only available from the boat. The boat captain will drop the shotline between the Imperial Eagle and the statue of Jesus Christ. Once you have seen the wreck you will swim off to the statue.
The statue of Jesus Christ
Next to the wreck, you can find the statue of Jesus Christ.
The statue was first sunk close to St. Pauls Island in 1990. 10 years later in 2000, it was removed from the bottom and replaced close to the Imperial Eagle which was sunk 1 year before. You will get the best of both sites.
You must be certified to dive to a depth of 40 meters to dive this site. If you wish to penetrate the wreck you will be required to have a Wreck Diver certification. We would also recommend Nitrox Diver.
