Our diving center

Islands Tec Dive is located in Marsalforn, a town on the north coast of Gozo Malta. In detail, you will find us at one of the main roads leading to the town-center.

From here we operate all our courses and diving activities. To point out, with the new e-learning possibilities, the classroom can be moved anywhere, ask us how!

All our equipment, predominantly from Mares, is professionally maintained and serviced. Do you have any special requests? Contact us!

Moreover, we have several vehicles to be flexible and bring you to the dive sites around the island of Gozo and to your accommodation.

Most importantly, we emphasize the responsible diver code which starts from the first breath underwater. Read more about it below.

Our Core Values

Islands Tec Dive is a small diving center which focuses on customer satisfaction! Subsequently, we personalize your dive training and adventures and offer you:

  • Highest Standards
  • Environmental Friendly Dive Education
  • Going the Extra Mile
“Water and air, the two essential fluids
on which all life depends,
have become global garbage cans.”


Although everyone should be aware of the problems the world oceans are facing, we focus on it from the first dive onwards with our responsible diver code. Therefore, we aim to sustain and preserve this environment, including its plants and animals.

Consequently, we are all responsible for protecting our aquatic resources. Furthermore, we want you to think critically and take positive action whenever you travel and dive.

  • Commit to personally protect the environment
  • Prevent others from causing damage through positive action and motivation
  • Support useful projects and organizations dedicated to marine protection
  • If possible, collect garbage on your dives – but only if doing so does not cause more damage to the environment
  • Additionally, if possible, cut hanging ropes and collect floating nets and plastics
  • Inform your buddy or the crew on the surface if you were not able to remove the net
  • Never eat shark fins, whale meat, turtle eggs, etc.
  • Report immediately violations of the ban on the use of marine animals as souvenirs
  • Never throw inorganic waste into the sea – Plastics decompose incredibly slowly
  • Minimize the production of garbage: Use reusable coffee mugs and lunch boxes, glass or metal bottles and shopping bags
  • Do not bring unnecessary packaging to the resort
  • Dispose of your waste in as eco-friendly a manner as possible
  • If you smoke, dispose of cigarette butts in the proper receptacle, not on the ground or in the water
  • Only use a swim-through if you can do so without touching anything
  • DON’T: – swim or snorkel too close to the reef – touch or break corals – disturb the sand, since it reduces visibility and smothers corals – hunt or bother animals – touch animals unless properly trained – feed animals – take souvenirs from the sea – broken coral pieces or empty snail shells still serve as useful habitat
  • Use labeled entrances/exits for the water
  • Only place a reef hook where it will not damage or disturb the reef
  • Do not disturb animals or habitat to improve your photo opportunity
  • Shower only as long as required to get clean, especially in areas with minimal ability to store/purify water
  • Wash your equipment in the provided container, and only when necessary – often it’s enough to clean equipment thoroughly at the end of the dive trip
  • Turn off the lights when you aren’t using them
  • Use alternative transportation or walk instead of driving
  • Avoid unnecessary waste – food plans and shopping lists help save you money, and prevent purchasing unnecessary food that may go to waste
