Deptherapy has announced the completion of its latest expedition.
This time around, eight beneficiaries and three instructors headed to St Julien’s Bay in Malta. The group focused on diving Malta’s historical wrecks utilizing the RAID Advanced Wreck Course as a training model.
Although the weather caused some issues with the diving timetable, the group conducted dives on famous wrecks like the HMS Maori, which shadowed the Bismarck during World War II, along with other less famous wrecks. In addition, the trip aimed to develop the skillset and confidence of those individuals tasked with leading the 2022 Marine Biology Red Sea expedition, which will take place aboard Roots’ Red Sea’s liveaboard Big Blue.
Commenting about the week, Deptherapy beneficiary and Trustee Michael Hawley said:
“A great week of diving, pity about the weather. The course is outstanding and the challenges pretty massive, but everyone responded positively. Lots of new skills were learnt and we worked together as a team to live up to our mantra to adapt and overcome.”
