Diving in Gozo
We offer holiday services for the island of Gozo.One of them is diving in gozo island.We can offer a complete diving package holiday including airport transport and the ability to rent an apartment or villa with pool.We have teamed up with a local diving centre to organise diving on the beautiful island of Gozo.Diving in Gozo is very popular.In fact a large number of tourists from different countries come from overseas either to learn diving or to join diving with a dive guide.
The best diving in Gozo is on the west and North coast especially in the west coast.One can find different dive sites like Inland Sea,Coral Cave ,Crocodile rock and the greatest and the most popular dive site in all the Maltese islands the Blue Hole of Gozo.
In the north of Gozo there are also two very good dive sites namely Reqqa Point and Double arch reef.These dive sites are all below the 30 metres range so a dive guide or instructor is recommended and only to divers qualified to Advanced level or above.
We take diving safety as our top priority and we take no more then 4 persons per group.We organise Padi diving courses and also guided dives in different languages.
Here are some pictures of the best gozo diving sites.
Blue Hole gozo diving site.
The blue hole is situated in dwejra bay just underneath where there was the Azure window of Gozo.Unfortunately the latter collapsed four years ago.Entry is rather difficult as the terrain is all rocky and quite sharp so one must always use a diving boots.When one enters the water and dives for 6 metres a large arch opens the dive throughthe marvellous open water and the deep blue sea.One can admire the beautiful golden cup coral and other corals.Amongst this dives popular fish like parrot fish,dentex and groopers can be seen.

The Inland Sea
The Inland Sea is also a popular dive site in Gozo.The entrance is rather easy compared to the blue hole as terrain is made of pebbles.One has to keep attention to the small tourist boats as several ones take tourists for a ride in the area.Inland sea,as the name suggests is a kind of lake allowing water to come in through a cave.
One can snorkel to the cave and dive down through a tunnel which starts at 10 metres at one end and ends up to 30 metres at the other end.The beautiful view outside the cave is parallel to none especially if one has a bright torch.At the end of tunnel the sea goes down to a further 60 metres.As a diving school wo dont go more than 40 metres.
Coral Cave is next to the blue hole so the entrance is rather difficult as well.One has to use diving boots consider an entrance through a 2 metres jump.One has to take care the sea is calm to moderate as exits can be rather difficult especially in bad weather.
Coral cave is a huge semicircular cave which as the name suggests is full of coral.The bottom is 26 metres deep and is sandy.Divers have to keep quite above the sand and have good buoyancy.as touching the sand with fins can geopardize the divers safety.At the end of the cave there is also a small cave.One should never enter that cave as a major fatality happened there several years ago.
Apart from exploring the cave one can explore the big boulders next to it where there is prolific fish life.
As the name suggests this is a rock formation which resembles a crocodile.
There are two ways to do enter the dive.Either by entering the water from the same spot of Coral cave.In this cave once has to do a 200 metres snorkel swim before diving the crocodile rock.One can stay at 10 metres on the reef.
The other option is to go by a small boat.One can explore the hole circumference of the rock and explore the reef.The dive should take around 50 mimutes.The spot is very deep around 80 metres.A lot of marine life both at 10 metres to the 40 metres range can be seen.
Upon entering the water one can find a lovely chimney at around 10 metres.Turning right under the tip of Ras ir-reqqa one can find a reef.One can stay at 20 to 4o metres depending on the experience.An instructor is recommend it for he dive.
The dive is good for photography as plenty of fish life can be seen.
Further North one can find the Double Arch reef which is also a deep dive and also xwejni bay which is a 10 metres dive ideal for beginners.
