The Polynesien, the Hellespont, the Southwold, the HMS Stubborn

 

Each and every one of these four wrecks have contributed to Malta's international reputation as a wreck diving destination! They're all deep, some of them very deep: from 40 to 70m... It goes without saying that they aren't accessible to everyone. You'll need technical diving certifications, preferably with Trimix. Rebreather divers have a sound advantage here! Be aware that currents can be extremely strong here: at those depths, breathing control and overexertion prevention are not just essential, they're vital.

Ask your dive centre so you can slowly warm up to those dives or even get trained to dive them. They're legendary dives, the kind you definitely want in your logbook: don't miss them, but make sure to do it safely...
