The ocean covers 70% of the planet and you can unlock the secrets of this underwater world by learning to scuba dive! All of our trips to Malta are available for scuba divers and those wishing to learn to dive. Before you arrive, you will learn about the theory of diving so that you are ready to learn the physical skills needed for diving in a pool before diving in the ocean.
The dive training will be run by PADI professionals who will work with small groups to ensure that all individuals are confident and competent divers. Once certified, individuals will be able to dive to a maximum depth of 18 metres with a dive buddy.
Whilst to be able to dive is a fantastic experience, it is important that the group learn about protecting aquatic life for the future, so individuals will learn excellent buoyancy skills to avoid damaging reefs. Being an Open Water Diver is a prerequisite for the Scientific Sharks research project.
