Unaccompanied Diving and Equipment Hire
Unaccompanied diving packages are extremely popular with divers who have been to Malta or Gozo before and are able to find their way around the dive sites by themselves.
Divers who wish to dive on their own with their buddy may do so, on presentation of PADI Advanced Open Water or equivalent certification by other agencies (e.g. CMAS Two Star Diver, BSAC Sport Diver, SSI Advanced Open Water, etc) or higher diving qualification. It is always recommended to check with the diving centre as to where would be suitable to dive, depending on weather conditions and experience.
In some sites it is easy to encounter archeological artifacts some of which may date up to the Roman era. Some of the wrecks are from the Second World War. Souvenir collection is clearly prohibited by local laws and offenders will be prosecuted. Should you think that you have come across an item of potential archeological interest please inform your instructor/dive center who will in turn relay the information of the Museums Department. As divers we all have a collective responsibility to take care of the aquatic environment by practicing ‘environmentally friendly’ diving.
