Who is Richard Salter?

Richard started diving on the Maltese Islands in 2004 where he has accumulated more than 5000 dives, mostly on the shores of Gozo and Comino. He has also used many boats to access the many boat dives that are otherwise impossible to get to given the nature of the high cliffs. 'Divemania' & Neptune's dive boat services to name but two.

During this time Richard was gripped by the beauty and tranquility of Gozo and remains working there as a PADI MSDT at St. Andrew's Divers Cove in Xlendi Bay.

Working as an instructor and guide to customers, he has steadily increased his experience and knowledge of the dive sites as well as the country.

Richard harbours a natural interest for the history of the Islands which comes apparent in the second addition of the forerunner 20 Shore Diving Maps of Gozo, 2012. This is a complete guide that will include 71 of the known dive sites around Gozo, including Comino, Cominotto.

Diving Gozo & Comino, an underwater playground is due to be published in March 2017.
