The beauty about the Cirkewwa dive site is that it encompasses a number of different types of dives all at one site and potentially within a single dive.  Two wrecks, the tugboat Rozi and the patrol boat P29, lie nicely upright on the sand tens of metres apart. Cirkewwa, at the northest part of Malta, is the berthing place of the Gozo ferry, and attracts hundreds of local and foreign divers all year round.  The sea life is incredible with barracudas, moray eels, octopus, squid, amberjacks and sea breams.  When you dive the tugboat Rozi, if you are good on consumption, you can go through the Arch on the adjacent reef, as well as, visit the Madonna before returning to prepare for ascent. The P29 dive is a beautiful dive in its own right where divers can additionally visit the Coral Garden and enjoy the sea life like garnau fish, groupers, common stigrays, scorpion fish and weever fish hiding along the sand.
