Hi folks,

I just moved to Malta, and I was wondering who's around there and interested in going freediving?
I'd love to meet up with people who enjoy being in the water, and who would like to go diving on a more regular basis (recreational, CWT or even DYN)

I'd be really happy to get to know the place, and most of all, have a good time in the water. So I'd be grateful for any helpful information and contacts!

Thanks and cheers!

Hi there,

I moved to Malta a couple of months ago. I've been looking for a buddy to go diving with... I've gone out snorkelling in a few places but no real diving yet. I don't like to go deeper with out a buddy...

I'm really looking for someone to go out for some fun diving with... I don't mind practicing technique and pushing the limits a bit every now and then. But mostly i go diving just for fun.

I'm pretty busy for the next week or so, and don't really have a constant schedule... Often working on weekends etc. but I'll pm you my contact details. I'm sure we can work something out.

All the best,

Tomi

St Pauls, I started spearfishing because exactly the same reason. I'm not a big fan, but it's a good motivator to spend some extra time in the water Whereabouts do you live?

Cool, I'm sure we can arrange something. I work full time during the week, so it's usually the weekends for me. This weekend might not be possible for me, but I'm not sure yet. When's a good time for you in general?

Good times ahead!

Hey all, me and a friend will stay 11.05-21.05 in victoria, gozo. This will be our first trip to malta. I think there are a lot of nice spots, like the P31, Blue Hole or Cathredal Cave, but we would also come to malta. I am already in contact with HydroAprrentice.
We would also like to do some deeper diving (~40m), but unfortunately we have no buoy.

Hey all, we have no plans to go to malta yet. I think we will focus primarily to dive sites on gozo. But as said we would also come over to malta. Propably diving every day. I think you should just suggest a date.

Thanks mate, that's a great offer. We could combine that with a beach-side BBQ Might as well be that I'll come over to Gozo for the weekend with my camping gear. But it's a bit hard at the moment to plan in advance, so let's check the options when you come over!
