The Scott Craig wreck was used for the filming of Popeye, and then scuttled just outside Anchor Bay where it lies on the sandy sea floor in an upright position. A nice dive for all levels, and as it is relatively undisturbed tends to be home to a nice variety of marine life. An ideal site for a 2nd boat dive.

 

L-Ahrax Cave - Location: North Coast | Max. depth 20m | Grade: All levels

The cave at L-Ahrax is accessible from shore but a much better dive from the boat as it cuts out all the hard work of getting there. Located behind an outcrop of the northern coastline there is a collapsed cave that can be accessed from underwater bringing you into a unique site in which you can surface and take some fun photos.

 

Filfla Island - Location: Off Wied-iz-Zurrieq | Max. depth 30m+ | Grade: Advanced Open Water +

The smallest island surrounding Malta which is an uninhabited Nature Reserve, is located a short distance away from Wied-iz-Zurrieq and Ghar Lapsi. To dive here you need to apply for a special permit.

 

Migrah Ferha – Location: West Coast | Max. depth 30m +| Grade: Advanced Open Water +

A car wreck graveyard and a small network of caves awaits you on this boat dive. The dive site offers you a variety of marine life, a halocline (mix of salt and fresh water) and some interesting cars to explore!

 

Devil’s Reef - Location: North West Coast| Max. depth 30m + | Grade: Advanced Open Water +

A lovely boat dive with drop offs and a nice cave and excellent marine life. Experienced divers only.
