GOZO Dive Sites
Join us on our daily dives
Most of the dive sites around Gozo can be accessed from shore, no boat needed!
Sitting to Maltas north lays its sister island, Gozo. The pace of life on this small, beautiful island is very relaxed. Gozo has a few wrecks off its southern coast, the most famous being the MV Karwella, an old ferry sunk as an artificial reef, suitable for more advanced divers. The picturesque island of Gozo boasts dramatic cliffs dropping into the sea, which continue on underwater, forming many drop-offs, caverns, caves, and swim-throughs. The best dive sites in Gozo include
the Blue Hole, the Inland-Sea, Reqqa Point, Double Arch, and Cathedral Cave, amongst others.
The Maltese diving offers great visibility year-round, water temperatures between 15 °C and 28 °C, stunning underwater topography, historical and artificial wrecks around Gozo, Malta, and Comino. We dive also in winter, but keep in mind
that weather conditions can be rather unpredictable!
