Unaccompanied diving on Gozo is very popular and dive packages are available. Divers, wishing to scuba dive Gozo independently must have a minimum qualification of PADI Advanced Open Water Diver. Scuba divers from other agencies are welcome and require the minimum certification level CMAS** Diver, BSAC Sports Diver or equivalent.

Unaccompanied divers require jeeps or car hire to get to the dive sites around Gozo. If you wish to rent a car or jeep, we can organise this for you through the dive centre upon request. You will require appropriate transport to navigate some of the roads and tracks leading to the dive sites. Not all dive sites have solid roads, and they are very uneven. It is essential you can lock your vehicle whilst leaving it unattended in the dive site car parks. It is essential that someone in the group has previous experience on Gozo and has knowledge of the dive-sites.

Enquire Pre-requisites

DiveSMART recommends that at least one person in the group has previous knowledge and diving experience on Gozo. A minimum of one person must have up to date Rescue and First Aid Skills, this is essential as some of the dive sites are quite remote. Having someone in the group acting as a Dive Leader level would be a positive advantage for the organisation and well being of all divers. We provide you with dive maps, risk assessment and emergency plans for your planned dives. Tips on weather conditions and dive site recommendations are offered to your group if required. These recommendations are for your own safety. Divers who have not yet reached the above levels of training are required to dive accompanied, with an Instructor at ALL TIMES. Any Instructor wishing to offer diving services to his or her clients must use a diving facility that is licensed through the Malta Tourism Authority. Furthermore, the Instructor must present proof of certification, full diving medical and a 3rd party liability insurance. For groups, we offer accommodation, airport transfer and vehicle hire.
