This publication covers dive sites around the Maltese Islands based on the author's experience of over 2000 dives in the waters of the Maltese Islands over a period of thirty years. It is a comprehensive full colour 224 page guide, with illustrated dive sites each with an aerial photograph, a local map and accompanying text, also boat dives are featured. This is well supported by many photographs; many of these are aerial, covering dive sites, marine life, wrecks, artificial reefs and places of interest. The book is fully up to date and includes a new wreck, the P31 which was scuttled off Comino on the 24th August 2009
It is written with the accounts of the author's experiences in scuba diving, local knowledge, having made more than 80 visits to the islands, and information aimed at both the experienced independent diver as a guide, also to those who require accompanied diving or for the beginner as a souvenir.
Clearly laid out, this A4 book takes you on a trip around the seas of the Maltese Islands. Below the aerial photograph is a three-dimensional map of each dive site, which is clear and easy to follow. They show the most favourable entry and exit points, depths and underwater landscape, helping to make each dive as stress free and as safe as possible, easy to read as the whole book is in a portrait format.
Detailed sections cover most things you would need to know when visiting the Maltese Islands, also information of places of interest to visit for those days when you do not go diving. There is a comprehensive index, which means that you don't need to spend hours trawling through the book every time you need to find something specific.
Highly illustrated as well as informative, this guide makes an ideal coffee table book as much as it does a reference book or of course as a souvenir for the beautiful aerial photographs contained within its pages.
This diving guide is supported by a majority of the Dive Centres of Malta Gozo and Comino, the Professional Diving Schools Association and the Malta Tourism Authority.
