Images from Malta and Gozo

I have now added 110+ images from my trip to Malta and Gozo last year to the ScubaPixel database. Feel free to enjoy spectacular wrecks and caves, colorful macro life and topside images.

Posted on Apr 26, 2011

This classic Mediterranean dive destination surprised me in a very positive way, offering both fantastic wreck and cave diving - but also some interesting macro life.

Some of the images were featured in my article from the islands in Dykking Magazine's second edition in 2011. They also used the Blenheim Bomber image to the left on the cover:

Malta and Gozo are known for great visibility and spectacular wreck diving. Surprisingly, the macro life was also very interesting.

I was invited to Malta and Gozo by the tourism authorities, and was hosted by Stuart Jones of Dive Malta/Tec Deep Blue while diving on the island.

We did some great dives on the wrecks of Umm El Fahroud, P-29 Boltenhagen, the Bristol Blenheim bomber and the HMS Maori in St. Elmos Bay - the images are all in the database.

Fantastic diving on Gozo

On Gozo I was hosted by Moby Dives in Xlendi, and taken good care of even though I had to stay a few extra days because of the ash clouds restricting air traffic over Europe at the time.

The caves of Gozo is a unique experience: Blue Hole, Coral Cave and Inland Sea are divesites not to be missed when visiting the island.

While others were stressed out by not getting home I enjoyed diving the wrecks of MW Karwela and Cominoland, as well as visiting top class divesites like Blue Hole, the Inland Sea, Coral Cave and Cathedral.

I have added more manatee images to the database, which now counts 25 images of these cute, cuddly seacows. The images are from Crystal River, Florida and were shot on a trip in 2006. READ MORE
Crustaceans are a strange breed of animals. They are closely related to insects, and their extreme diversity in terms of behaviour, size and appearance always attract the attention of divers.
