Scuba Diving in Gozo

Scuba Diving in Gozo

They say good things come in small packages, and it’s never been truer than in Gozo. Little sister to Malta and just 25 square miles, Gozo is home to fewer than 40,000 people. It might be small, but boy is this place mighty when it comes to marine life. Gozo is the place for scuba diving!

If scuba diving in the actual ocean is on your Bucket List, Gozo’s the place to go. These crystal-clear Mediterranean waters will give you visibility of up to 40m, reaching 28˚C in the summer. Pretty good conditions, those. 

With stunning seascapes, magical grottos, cavernous drop-offs and forgotten wreck-sites aplenty, Gozo’s got everything any diver could possibly want – and that’s before you’ve even started looking at the fish.

Have a look around and discover why you should explore the wonders of the deep blue in Gozo on a Bucket List adventure.

What is it like?

Forget long walks and rolling hills. What you really want are the secret underwater landscapes of the Mediterranean.  

There’s nothing quite like learning to dive in Gozo, and if you’re looking to get PADI-certified in Europe, this is definitely the place to do it. In a matter of days, you’ll go from having little to zero experience in wetsuit and mask to diving extraordinaire of the deep. 

Plus you’ll see some seriously cool stuff. 

Just a three-hour hop away, Gozo’s super convenient for UK adventurers and offers the most diverse underwater topography you’ll find on this side of the globe. And there really is a whopping range of diving to do here, from calm bays to deep caverns and swim-throughs to the famous Blue Hole. Guess what colour the waters are there

Gliding beneath the waters, you’ll see spectacular shoals pottering about with their day-to-day and witness the stunning caves, gullies and reefs shaped out of the soft rock that makes up most of the island. 

The diving here is so stunning and great for your mental health too; where else can you take time out like this and eyeball nature’s finest at the same time? 

And life on land is just as gentle as it is beneath those azure waters. You’ll get so much out of the laid-back way of living in Gozo, bathing in the glowing atmosphere on the island, thanks to the lovely locals there. 

But let’s not forget the important stuff. Over a 4-day course, you’ll not only dive into some of the most beautiful seascapes on earth, but you’ll learn how to do it safely – and get the PADI qualification to prove it!

Here’s what some of our awesome customers had to say:

“Just got back from Gozo where my partner and I completed our PADI open water course through the Bucket List Company. After doing Everest Base Camp earlier this year, we knew it would be a well organised trip, but it exceeded our expectations. Keith, who is a divemaster himself, picked out the best dive centre on the island for us. Ritual is a new dive shop in Gozo with a brilliant group of instructors who could not have been more friendly and supportive throughout this holiday. Thanks to them and the Bucket List Company, we are now qualified divers. The highlight of the trip was the all day boat trip to Comino, where we went diving in the caves and around a ship wreck. 

Already booked my third Bucket List Company trip (Kilimanjaro, 2021) but thinking of booking a few more.”

Andi K Gozo Diving Trip The Bucket List Company Reviews

“The Bucket List Company never fails to impress! Whether trekking to Everest Base Camp or Scuba Diving in Gozo, they have the skills, knowledge and enthusiasm to make every trip unforgettable.”

Richard Whybrow Gozo Diving Trip The Bucket List Company Reviews

“I loved the ability to be able to pay in instalments so that I could tick Learning to Dive off my Bucket List. The company gave us all the info we needed before we left and were quick to respond to queries.

Keith couldn’t have been friendlier or more helpful whilst we were away. The staff and instructors at the diving school were very professional and still managed to be great fun. They were very supportive and made sure the whole group gained our qualifications. The location on Gozo was fabulous and, although the accommodation was a bit tired, I understand it’s going to be completely refurbished so, if you’re on the next trip, you’re in for a real treat!”

Hazel Edwards Gozo Diving Trip The Bucket List Company Reviews

“Fabulous trip to Gozo. Scuba diving around the island. Very well organised and managed. The Bucket List Team were extremely professional and the diving course was simply amazing. 

You will meet lots of different people on the trip all doing the same thing and I have made some life long friends. I have already booked to go back on the next diving course in June 2020.

I can’t recommend it enough. Get booking.”

Chris Vincent Gozo Diving Trip The Bucket List Company Reviews

“We recently returned from a fantastic Scuba Diving trip in Gozo, This was our first time using The Bucket List company and we were really impressed with everything from booking the trip to the return flights home, it was all so easy with no stress. Everything was perfectly organised, the group – 18 of us, got on really well and the trip leader, Keith, was a great host. We’re already planning our next trip with The Bucket List Company.”

Dean Gozo Diving Trip The Bucket List Company Reviews

“Just returned from my first The Bucket List Company (“TBLC”) group holiday, diving in beautiful Gozo and I was not disappointed. I was happy with the information provide before the trip and found it to be very helpful. The whole trip was wonderfully organised and left me without a worry in the world. TBLC is great for a group of like minded (solo) travellers to travel and explore together. I’ve made some friends that I’ll be keeping in touch with. 

Gozo was friendly, stunning, had great food and provided great diving locations full of aquatic life and filled with one amazing experience after another. The dives were arranged locally by Ritual Dives, with amazing instructors whose enthusiasm, knowledge and passion for Gozo and diving simply rubs off on you. They also managed to get the entire group their PADI Open Water certificates and two of us also went on to obtain our PADI Advanced Open Water certificates all in the same week. The trip ended on a high with fun dives which included a wreck dive, plus a night dive for the Advanced divers.

I am so glad to have gone on this amazing fun adventure with Keith and TBLC. Being able to pay in instalments and having flights included in the price makes TBLC even more appealing. I’m already planning my next TBLC adventure; but Gozo definitely deserves another visit. Can’t wait to return and dive again with Ritual and my new friends.”
