Discover scuba for free at Malta’s Phoenicia Hotel

The ‘Discover Scuba – Just Breathe’ session, led by Oxygene Dive Centre, is perfect for beginners or those in need of a refresher course. With expert tuition from a PADI instructor to teach the basic skills of swimming underwater, ‘Discover Scuba’ is a pool-based activity which takes place in a nearby dive centre and gently builds confidence and prepares keen explorers for more adventurous sea dives.

For those keen to go a little deeper, the Phoenicia’s ‘Discover Scuba Diving – Explore the Sea’ takes you to the next level. A PADI instructor will take you into the sea and guide you through a world of colours, shapes and beautiful creatures. Upon completion of your ‘Discover Scuba Diving’ you’ll also achieve credit towards your Scuba Diver course.

The islands of Malta, Comino and Gozo are known for some of the best diving and snorkelling in Europe, with stunning underwater landscapes, beautiful reefs, incredible caves and World War Two shipwrecks. Experienced divers from all over the world have taken the plunge into the depths of the Blue Hole near Dwerja Point, and HMS Maori, a spectacular British destroyer, can be found a few hundred metres from the shores of Valletta.

Back on shore, relax at the magnificent Phoenicia which boasts 128 contemporary-styled rooms and suites, fantastic wining and dining, the glamorous Bastion Pool Deck and seven acres of exquisite gardens making it the ultimate haven, whilst also offering an ideal location for discovering the delights of Malta.
