Divers, who wish to scuba dive independently, must have a minimum qualification of PADI AOW Diver. Scuba divers from other agencies must be minimum CMAS** Diver, BSAC Sports Diver or equivalent to dive independently.

Unaccompanied divers will require jeep 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. Appropriate transport is required to navigate some of the roads and tracks leading to the dive sites. Not all dive sites have solid roads, they are very uneven.
