Scuba Diving Site: The Blue Hole & The Chimney
Amazing scuba diving site located near Dwejra in Gozo. This dive site is of the The Blue Hole which is a popular cave dive in Malta. This dive is great for all levels of scuba divers. Make sure you experience this site during your holiday in Malta & Gozo. Once kited up and in the water the hole drops off to 15 m with the top of the window sitting at 7 m, here also sits a cave which extends at least 15 m under the rock. Once through this turning right will take you underneath the Azure window where there are many boulders and rocks, watch out for tuna and big groupers. Turning left will take you onto the reef, please note the reef extends downwards in excess of 50m so watch your depth. This way also leads to the coral gardens which can be accessed though a small vertical swim though at 20 meters, inside the depths are quite shallow form 2 to 5 m, here if you are lucky can be seen the occasional Sea Horse. Exiting through a channel on the other side we can swim back to the Blue hole to the exit point. We find various species such as Octopus, Starfish, and Fire worms, in between the crevices we find cardinal fish, sea urchins even the long spine sea urchins and colourful sponges. Also can been seen are Barracuda, and Tuna as well as Bullet Tuna if you are quick enough. Great place to go scuba diving and i was lucky enough to go as part of an escorted scuba diving package arranged by Chikarma Diving Malta.
