This is the first in a series of dives in beautiful Malta with
Techwise, part of Divewise.
We're conducting a series of technical dive courses to push down
below 30 metres and beyond the usual one-tank, no
decompression limit dives.
Both of us are very excited!
We began with an introductory dive — getting a sense of
the waters and the folks who work there.
And we learned that the waters, despite being the warmest in
Europe, are still very, very cold!
Despite having our 7 mm wetsuits, 2.5 mm gloves, and borrowed 2.5 mm
hoods, we were still cold after only a few minutes in the water.
So much for being tough diving types!
We happily took the time to try on some dry suits for our next
dives. More [warmer] dives soon to come!
