Projects enable us to join forces with other like minded people to explore the local area for new dive sites.
Brainchild of Steve Wilkinson, Project Shadow was originally conceived to identify further dive sites for Hypoxic and Expedition Trimix certified divers. It has now evolved into so much more.... The core team consists of Kalle Selin, Edd Stockdale and Steve Wilkinson, all Technical Instructors dedicated to high quality instruction and service. Project Shadow has identified over 17 potential 'new' wreck sites which have been passed to the proper authorities to research. We continue to work closely with these authorities to assist in any way that we can. Safety is our number one priority, we dive as a team for the team.
In a joint venture between the MTA (Maltese Tourism Authority) and Unterwasser Magazine, I was fortunate enough to be a support diver to Steve Jones, a professional underwater photographer.
