Malta and Cyprus - Mediterranean diving at its best
You can find some of the best scuba diving in the Mediterranean Sea on the small islands of Malta and Cyprus. Sitting just south of Sicily, Italy, the crystal-clear Mediterranean waters surround the tiny, historic island nation of Malta. Phenomenal caves, beautiful reefs, and ancient wrecks await divers of all levels, reachable by both shore and boat. Fantastic diving is also on Cyprus, the third-largest island in the Mediterranean. It sits just off Turkey and Lebanon’s shores, beckoning adventurous divers to slip beneath its azure-blue waters and explore its hidden past. Explore Cyprus’ ancient amphorae-filled dive sites, deep drop-offs, and impressive shipwrecks. Come see all that Malta and Cyprus diving has to offer!
Discover the world’s most fascinating aquatic life
Aquatic life under our oceans, lakes, rivers, and streams is amazing! From microscopic zooplankton to the largest animal on earth, the blue whale, underwater life comes in all possible shapes and sizes. With 71% of the earth being covered with water, it is no wonder we are so fascinated with what lies beneath the surface. In fact, scientists estimate that there are nearly 1 million different species of aquatic animals. Freshwater ecosystems are home mainly to fish, invertebrates, and reptiles, whereas the ocean contains a wide array of marine life including fish, mollusks, crustaceans, reptiles, sharks, and marine mammals like whales, dolphins, seals, and manatees.
