New dive spot Azure Boulders
Big news from a small island: Even in the United States and Australia, it was reported in the news that the popular limestone arch collapsed into the Mediterranean Sea on 8th March.
The entire structure, which weighed many thousand tons, had been an incredible sight, especially when the evening sun dipped into the distant horizon. Apparently, it had been unstable for some time, and slabs of rock from the cliff had been falling into the sea. As a result, walking across the bridge of the Azure Window has been forbidden since January. Previously, the rough seas had broken off large bits of the outer cliff, and this had probably led to the instability.
After the structure collapsed, the whole of Gozo was shocked and many of us in the diving community felt as if a good friend had been lost. Now, a few weeks later, we are realizing that we have gained a stunning “new” dive site - the “Azure Window” has become the “Azure Boulders”.
We are looking forward to exciting dives along these large rock formations, some of the boulders rise from a depth of below 30 metres to almost surface level!
Moreover, for those of you, who will rent their dive gear: The dive center is equipped with brand new Beuchat V Firts regulators – come and try!
Save the date! From 5th to 9th June, we have an exciting event here in the Maltese Archipelago: the European Divers Meeting. For more information, please visit: www.europeandiversmeeting.com/.
