Diving in Malta is a bit gentler than back home, there is no slack window, the water is warm and clear, the beer generally cold, and the divesites plentiful and easily accessible.
Yes the island is set up for divers it seems, as one of Malta's main tourism attractions (well that and churches, there are hundreds) the maltese tourism board does a lot of work to keep the dive industry happy.
Most accessible wrecks are purpose sunk, and although there are many many genuine wrecks, most of them are not released yet for public diving due to historical value.
On the left you see Oli entering the Faroud, an old Oil tanker of rather large proportions, purpose sunk at Zurrieq for divers to explore. Large opens have been cut out allowing divers to enter the superstructure with relative ease.
