Comments New Dimension Scuba provided us with a great week of wreck diving. We did one day of boat diving (the Imperial Eagle wreck is recommended) and 3 days of shore diving. The shop provided daily pick-up and drop-off at our apartment, transportation to dive sites, and a divemaster guide on all dives. Malta has a wide variety of ship and plane wrecks for boat diving, and artificial reef wrecks for shore diving. Our divemaster Ollie (a RAID Instructor-Trainer) was very knowledgeable about the wrecks and attentive to our safety and enjoyment. Many of the wrecks are below 100' depth, so better suited to experienced deep divers. Lots of good World War II wrecks at technical depths. We rented an apartment in Bugibba within a short walk of the dive shop. Lots of topside attractions in Malta, especially historical castles, museums and fortifications. The Order of the Knights of St. John and World War II events are a highlight. A fabulous English-speaking dive location for those interested in shipwrecks. The biological diversity and abundance were low. Would certainly recommend New Dimension Scuba to others.
