Plongée

The calmness and clarity of the sea makes for excellent visibility whilst the risk of encountering dangerous fish is extremely low, creating the ultimate conditions for first time divers and beginners. For the more experienced divers, there are plenty of challenging dives to choose from.

The depths of the dives vary, from the very shallow 12-metre Ghar Lapsi dive to Lantern Point, with its underwater tunnel leading down to well over 50 metres.

There are several types of diving courses and activities offered by locally licensed diving schools. Divers need to complete a medical statement form indicating their fitness to dive. Divers who wish to dive unaccompanied are required to have a buddy as well as to present a PADI Advanced Open Water or equivalent certification by other agencies. It is always recommended to check with the diving centre as to where would be suitable to dive, depending on weather conditions and experience.

ACE English Malta co-operates with some of the islands’ most reputable diving schools to ensure that the needs of students who would like to combine learning English at ACE with a diving course or some individual dives are seen to.
