Club trip to Malta

Fiona & Simon Hampton-Matthews, Martin Glanvill, Paul van der Lem and Mark Siggins flew out to Malta for a bit of winter sunshine and diving. We were diving with Sea Shell Dive Cove, Mellieha.

We expected water temperatures to be the same as UK in the summer and weren't disappointed, but the weather was not as good as we had hoped! We did have sunshine but it was coupled with lots of wind, rain, hail and sleet! Luckily we didn't go a week later as Malta experienced gale force winds making many of the dive sites untenable.

Despite the wind, we did 10 good dives:-

We stayed at the Pergola Club Hotel in Mellieha.
