Dive Site: Ten Wreck & St Michael

Location: Zonqor Point

Description: Tug wrecks

Depth: 18 - 22 metres (60 - 72 feet)

Visibility: 30 metres (100 feet)

Rating: ***

There are two wrecks of tug boats at Zonqor Point: St Michael and the Ten Wreck. St Michael lies in 22 metres of water and is pictured here. It is a short swim out from the shore on a 270 degree bearing. The Ten wreck is about 30 metres further around the reef from St Michael at 18 metres depth. The visibility is normally good enough that you can easily find one wreck from the other. The Ten wreck is so called because it has 'No. 10' painted on it.

On the swim to the wrecks there were a couple of free-swimming little moray eels. After 15 mins we found the wreck but unfortunately the viz was not so great. A few goatfish were swimming around. This wasn't the most interesting dive and there are definitely a lot better in Malta. Be very careful on exiting the water; I got pulled off the rocks and was close to cracking my head open by a freak wave, which was my bad luck I guess. I did manage to safely escape with just bruised legs. Once back on the rock though I did have to be held onto while taking off my fins. A lot of the diving in Malta is shore based on rocks like this so a lot of care is needed.

Nice easy dive with plenty of nudibranchs

Didn't find the wrecks (bad viz) but saw two stingrays, morays and an octopus. Nice easy dive!
