72ft/22m
Visibility:
Low
Malta is located in the center of the Mediterranean Sea, regarded as of great strategic importance throughout history. Valletta, the capital city of Malta, also called The Fortress City and is an amazing late Renaissance work of art and architecture.

With it’s rich historical past and the amazing castles and cathedrals, Valletta is being listed as a World Heritage City by UNESCO and as one of the most concentrated historic areas in the world. Birgu is located on the south side of the Grand Harbor and is an ancient city that played an important role during the Siege of Malta in 1565.

However, Malta’s many historical sites are not only spotted on the island’s ground. Widely voted as one of the best places for scuba diving in the deep blue waters of the Mediterranean sea, Malta offers many exciting diving spots of great biodiversity and historical interest. One of these places is the MV Odile wreck, an Italian steam freighter, that was attacked during the World War II and sunk in the Grand Harbor.

The wreck is located in the center of Kalkara Creek and can be approached from the shore but you will need a lot of air. The hull of the ship is broken into many pieces most of them completely destroyed or missing but is still a very interesting dive suitable for advanced divers only.

The maximum depth of the spot is at 72 ft/22 m and it lies in white sand. It is possible to penetrate into the ship but due to low visibility, it is highly recommended to dive with someone with local knowledge or visit the wreck with one of the diving schools in Valletta.

The warm, clear waters of Valletta await the curious scuba diving enthusiasts to discover this thrilling wreck, so get ready for a unique dive in a place full of incredible stories and myths. Divers should take a dive light torch with them.
