Training In Malta

Diving Matrix often runs courses and trips to the beautiful islands of Malta and Gozo. The diving conditions are pretty stunning here most of the year. Both Paul and Oli have lived and worked on Malta and thus itimately knowledable about it's interesting road behaviour, and many underwater rusty pearls it holds.

Diving in Malta is a bit gentler than back home, there is no slack window, the water is warm and clear, the beer generally cold, and the divesites plentiful and easily accessible.

Yes the island is set up for divers it seems, as one of Malta's main tourism attractions (well that and churches, there are hundreds) the maltese tourism board does a lot of work to keep the dive industry happy.


Most accessible wrecks are purpose sunk, and although there are many many genuine wrecks, most of them are not released yet for public diving due to historical value.

On the left you see Oli entering the Faroud, an old Oil tanker of rather large proportions, purpose sunk at Zurrieq for divers to explore. Large opens have been cut out allowing divers to enter the superstructure with relative ease.


In 2017, Diving Matrix has run a range of courses in Malta.

We've had several RAID DECO 50 programmes, a couple of DECO 50 Instructor programs, all on open Circuit. Paul's been out and has taught CCR DECO 60 programs, Sentinel Instructor courses, JJ-CCR crossovers, CCR Hypoxic courses, and CCR Instructor and IT courses. It's been a busy year for Matrix after it's reboot, and we are sure 2018 will see a few benchmark trips to Malta for good measure!
