Nice shots Damo - I've just got a d200 for U/W and you've set the standard for me to try and equal. Wish me luck!

Hi Damo,

Lol..:-D

Well Peter, I could see the outline of the Faroud at about 14 meters from the surface...and def. u could easily see 15m+ at a depth of 20 meters or so.
Compared to the red sea....maybe not as good...compared to dublin bay...awesome!
Actually..I've always liked the viz in Malta..irresepective of the time of year...the only lower vis dives i've done have been in valletta harbour...but...valetta harbour is a super site and has so much potential for macro :-)
