? Um el FaroudThe Um El Faroud was sunk in 1998 following a terrible explosion on board that killed nine Maltese dockyard workers. Lying on the sandy seabed the ship weighs 10,000 tons and is 115m long. The depth to the top of the bridge is 18m and 25m to the main deck. The wreck can be entered fairly easily, but due to its size, this should be restricted only to divers with advanced wreck diving training.? Tugboat RoziLocated in the north of Malta the tugboat lies at a depth of 36m. She was scuttled in 1991 as an underwater attraction for glass-bottomed boat tours. Rozi sits upright on
the sandy seabed, all intact except for its engines and propeller. A very popular dive, great for exploring and surrounded by thousands of fish. ? Bristol BeaufighterDuring WW ll (1943), the Bristol Beaufighter was flying out of Malta but underwent mechanical failure and crashed. She crash landed in the sea and is still lying in the exact position, at a depth of 37m right outside St. Julians. Slightly smaller, shallower and in a brighter condition than the Bomber, the Bristol Beaufighter is a highly regarded dive. Only 15 mins by boat from the dive centre, this is a treat for the experienced. ? MV Imperial EagleThe MV Imperial Eagle (pictured above) was one of the ferryboats connecting Malta and Gozo. The hull lays on a sandy bottom at a depth of 42m. The wide hold is open and the wreck allows an easy and interesting dive. Close by is a statue of Jesus Christ. This 13 ton statue was reallocated here in May 2000. It was originally sunk near St. Paul's Islands and blessed by Pope John Paul in 1990 to protect the fishermen of Malta.©Malta Tourism AuthorityWith year round sunshine, an intriguing 7,000 year history, unique culture and superb diving conditions, the islands of Malta, Gozo and Comino are best visited any time of year!
