    Hi all

    I'm just about to book a cheap holiday for the Summer, I am going with my girlfriend who doesn't dive so that is a consideration.

    Which of the locations on the poll would you choose given the limited options?

    I enjoyed diving in Malta. That is diving not driving :sappy:
    Gozo is phenomenal A1, 1st class. You would probably like it even more. That's only 15 minutes by ferry off the north coast of Malta.

    Cheers

    I'd go to one of the Greek islands like Mikanos or Kos. The diving may not be that good but you have a much better chance of finding a new girlfriend that wants to dive :D :wink:

    Hi Mark, I can only wish. At the moment here in SW Ontario the temp is above zero but still single digit. We got ice in most diving areas. I would still go but the ice is shifting and that can be lethal. Got a brand new pair of turtles with spring straps that I'm, dying to try out. Just like a kid with his new toys.

    Yorkshire Divers from the UK are going to visit Malta and possibly Gozo either March or Apr. You should contact them. They can’t wait just like a bunch of youngsters. Apparently they want mostly shore dives, perhaps a dive or two off a boat and a couple of DPV. I don’t know if they’ll be going teckie. A buddy of mine from Malta will be joining them too. If I had the time I would pack my gear and come with them. They are a bunch of good happy divers. This is their link-

    Voted for Malta, but recommend you (also) go to Xlendi bay in Gozo.

    Hi Nessy

    I recommend Malta too. It's a great place to visit even if you're not diving. You’ll enjoy it even more if you and your girlfriend are interested in history, anthropology, archaeology, architecture, and good food and wine. Another bonus is that the natives are friendly and speak English. As for the diving, it's claimed to have the best ding in the Med.

    Happy Holidays

    Sylvie
