Scuba Diving in Malta, Europe
Dive Site: Cathedral Cave
Location: Gozo, Malta
Description: Cave dive
Depth: 18 (59 feet)
Visibility: 25 metres (82 feet)
A wonderful dive. However, you have to climb down 150 steps with all your kit on to get to it, and this is even more tiring after the dive, but the view going down is lovely. The dive starts in a little inlet and we descended in the mouth of the inlet, and turned right. We swam passed a lot of rocks until we got to a huge hole in the cliff at 18m. At first you think you are going into total darkness and then you see a surface above. We did a safety stop and surfaced into a cave that was inside the rock. It was very dark and full of echoes. If you splashed the water in front of you it splashed with a blue light. As soon as you put your head underwater you could see the bright blue arch of the entrance. On the way back we saw several scorpionfish.
