Maruti jeeps are very popular on Gozo, most especially with those divers who rent a jeep to dive independently. Still, the last place where one would expect to see these jeeps is underwater.
At this dive site, apart from the jeep in the above photo, there is another Maruti jeep which is however in a very poor state. Other highlights of this dive are numerous tunnels and swim-throughs (photo bottom right) and an abundance of marine life is generally encountered.
The above photos also feature a scorpionfish (Scorpaena scrofa) surrounded by swallowtail sea perches (Anthias anthias) and a spirograph (Spirographis spallanzani).
These photos were taken at The Maruti Dive on Gozo’s north coast.
