Freediving Locations in Malta

commino tug


Malta, Gozo and Commino, the 3 main Islands you would be visiting during your Freediving experience. Harbours, bays, sheltered creeks, cliffs, reefs and wrecks. The waters here are some of the most limpid and clear in the world. Visibility is excellent down to around 30 metres. So Malta is a dream destination for underwater exploration and photography. Marine life flourishes in a vibrant display of colours.

Join us and explore a variety of underwater worlds. We’ve listed some of the best known dive sites ranging from labyrinthine caves to reefs and wartime wrecks. Depths varying from 4m to 80m. The great thing about the Maltese Islands is that you can always find a free-diving site sheltered from strong currents and you can dive all year round!


Most sites a accessible from shore and some may prove to be an adventure to get there. You may also choose to go by rib or boat depending on the amount of free-divers, or alternatively by canoe. Some dive sites are so close to each other it would be easy enough to swim from on to the other. Take your pick!
