Cirkewwa is located on the northernmost end of Malta. Some worth exploring dive sites are set within a few hundred meters of each other. There are underwater tunnels, caves, cliffs, walls and a natural arch that indicates a collapsed cave top. Other underwater attractions include a statue of the Madonna and two wreck sites: the Rozi wreck and P29 wreck. Diving in this area is suitable for divers of all levels of experience, though diving the wreck sites is recommended barely for advanced divers.

When to go

Diving is available year-round. The average depth of the site is 30m/100ft with visibility of more than 30 m/100 ft. The average air temperature is around 10-15C/50-59F during the winter and 21-30C/70-83F in the summer. The average water temperature stays about 14-17C/58-63F from December through April and 18-25C/65-77F from May through November.

What to see

There is a wide variety of fish species here, including tuna, wrasse, jacks, damselfish, groupers, sea bream, barracuda, moray and conger eels.

In almost all weather conditions, we can take you to one of our 35 sites, offering caves, grottos, tunnels, reefs, wrecks, etc, all of which will leave a lasting impression upon you. Upon request, we can offer Day-Trips to Malta as well as Night-Dives and Early Morning Dives. We dive in small groups and all sites can be quickly accessed via our Buses or Boats.
