MALTA: Diving in Gozo

MALTA: Diving in Gozo

These photos are from diving the Maltese islands of Gozo and Comino in the Mediterranean Sea with Mike from Next Dive and my friend Alex. Diving in Gozo is surreal, the water is so clear and blue that you can see almost forever.  We dove to the deepest depths I had been to (38m), and swam through underwater chimneys and caves.

Diving with Mike was the best, when Mike wasn’t underwater dancing or hiding and popping out from behind rocks, he was above water throwing us off the boat, attempting to get hugs and kisses from us ladies, or taking us out for dinner at one of his favorite Gozo spots.
