Diving

Gozo is home to some of the best diving in the Mediterranean. There are dive spots suitable for all levels of experience, from beginners to practiced divers looking for a new challenge. The underwater landscape here is spectacular, the visibility excellent. The sea is usually calm and the sea temperature never drops below 13ºC so diving is possible almost all the time.

Gozo has a remarkable number of dives accessible from the shore and many more that are just a short boat ride away. The small size of the island means that you spend little time travelling between sites and if there is wind on one side of the island you are only minutes from an alternative dive-site.

The Blue Hole in Dwejra is a big draw for divers: a natural underwater archway that leads to the open sea. There is also an abundance of reefs and caves, as well as four specially sunk wrecks, making Gozo’s diving some of the most interesting in the Mediterranean.

Public Health Services at the Gozo General Hospital are also supplemented with a fully fledged Hyperbaric Chamber. Services are provided by specialised personnel trained to handle diving-related illness. In cases of emergency, dial telephone number 112 for assistance.
