New book ‘Diving Gozo & Comino: The essential guide to an underwater playground’ by Richard Salter released


Gozo, Malta, has a multitude of underwater attractions. Divers can explore breathtaking caves, tunnels, wrecks, reefs and bays. Add to this a profusion of marine life and good visibility and it is not hard to understand why diving here is consistently voted amongst the best in Europe.

The latest release from Dived Up Publications, Richard Salter’s new book covers a huge 57 dives on Gozo and 14 on Comino. Original site maps include suggested routes, the location of underwater caves and swim-throughs, depth and features. Photographs from a variety of contributors show both Gozo’s underwater scenery and the topside landscape. Written by a vastly experienced resident instructor and guide Diving Gozo & Comino: The essential guide to an underwater playground features both shore and boat dives, including some sites which are very rarely explored. Whether researching a selfguided trip or diving with one of Gozo’s many centres this book will help you to pick and plan safe and fun dives.

And not only that – Diving Gozo & Comino also contains information about the island’s rich history, fascinating tourist sites, celebratory village festas and delicious original food.

*Diving Gozo & Comino includes changes caused by the collapse of the Azure Window at Dwejra in March 2017. Although an incredibly sad loss, this natural event was just one of an infinite number which have sculpted the coastline of the Maltese islands over the millennia, as divers can see better than most. Among the changes are new swim-throughs and shallower parts, which make it accessible to more divers. The adjacent Blue Hole was unaffected.
