GLUG dive trip - MALTA 19 - 26 MAY 2017
We are diving with Divewise a tried and tested dive school in St Julien's Bay. GLUG has been there several times and Martin dived and taught from here on several occasions too.
£270 covers the cost of 10 dives, with tanks and weights with an additional €10 per day for BCD's and Regs. We will be diving Sat - Sat, but some will be flying out on Thursday as we did last year. Please don't turn up without at least a suit, mask fins and snorkel. You can dive in a wet suit if you wish, but a dry suit would be preferable. Divewise give you a card which gets you 10% off at Huggins, the local bar and several other retailers too.
You will now need to source your own accomodation, but we can recomend and warn against a few: Some people are booked into the Dragonara self catering appartments, which has twin rooms for £28 per night. Some other options are listed below. Avoid the Alexandra though, it is full of students and VERY noisy.
Malta offers a wide range of depths and wrecks and reefs, though the wildlife isn't as plentiful as some places we've been, the water is clear and there is something for everyone. Martin can also teach on this trip, so if you have a course you wish to complete, let him know. Anything from Recreational to Technical diving is possible, just ask.
