WIN! WIN! WIN!
A Short Break in Malta for 2 with Maltaqua worth 390 Euros!

Malta is ideal for a short break. Not too far away, yet far enough south to offer some warmth in the winter months. Small enough to allow a drive to any dive site within half an hour, yet large enough to offer a sheltered side when the wind blows. There are no tides and few currents, so you can throw away your tide tables and dive when you feel like it. And, with Maltaqua’s 40+ years’ experience, you won’t have to waste any precious diving time. The diving includes spectacular drop-offs, overhangs, caves and swim-throughs, and a wide range of wrecks, to suit all abilities.
Maltaqua is offering our lucky winner a 3-night break for 2, including accommodation, diving and transfers. You can meet Maltaqua at DIVE 2012 on stand 422.
