A Short Break in Malta for 2 with Maltaqua worth up to 420 Euros!

Malta is ideal for a short break. Not too far away, yet far enough south to offer some warmth in the cooler months of the year. Small enough to allow a drive to any dive site within half an hour, yet large enough to offer a sheltered side when the wind blows.
There are no tides and few currents, so you can throw away your tide tables and dive when you feel like it. And, with Maltaqua's many years of experience, you won't have to waste any precious diving time.
All you have to do for a chance to win is enter the competition in our free Divernet Xtra newsletter!

    T-Rex Dive Knife .....Aquatec

    T-Rex Dive Knife .....Aquatec The T-Rex dive knife is the next generation low-profile silhouetted type dive knife.

    The dive knife is a single blade design with a very ergonomic handle directly molded into the blade. This knife feels so natural in your hand that it will feel like a natural extension of your body.

    The silhouetted one-piece dive/activity knife is getting more and more popular. The advantages of this type of one-piece knife blade is its thin profile and less weight to make it more portable, but the drawback is that it is difficult and awkward to hold. The T-Rex Dive/Activity Knife has solved this problem by having an ergonomically shaped handle with a thin plastic insert to give the handle a very comfortable feel. more...
