Wrecks and caves at their best!
Gozo’s unique scenery continues under water. Wonderful dive sites in crystal clear water with caves, overhangs, openings and fascinating rock formations leave every diver spellbound. Visibility of up to 50 metres and the beautiful blue of the water combine to create extraordinary light and colour effects.
The dive centre is connected to the Grand Hotel in Mgarr, in an adjacent building just 15 metres from the hotel’s terrace bar. Besides the office area, the compressor room and a workshop / room for equipment for hire, there’s a special drying room for storing guests’ diving gear.
Gozo / Extra Divers Gozo
Wrecks and caves at their best!
Around 32 different dive sites can be reached by minibus / 4WD or by boat. The Extra Divers centre offers at least two dives a day – and there are also night dives on offer several times a week, as well as boat trips and full-day excursions to selected sites off Comino, Malta and Gozo. The guided dives are always conducted in small groups, visiting the most beautiful locations around the islands, including wrecks, steep walls, caves and grottos. Accompanied by the centre’s experienced guides, you’ll discover legendary dive sites like the Blue Hole and the Inland Sea. At Extra Divers Gozo, snorkelers and non-diving companions are also very welcome.
You’ll be impressed by the diving on Gozo, with its very good visibility and water temperatures of up to 27°C in the summer. Under the water you’ll encounter large groupers, huge shoals of sea bream, big barracudas, mackerel and the occasional tuna and eagle ray. Octopuses and cuttlefish are ever-present – and for macro enthusiasts there are seahorses and nudibranchs to be discovered. A particular highlight is seeing helmet snails during night dives. Gozo is suitable for beginners and experienced divers alike. There are only slight currents. All of this makes the island the perfect destination for anyone wanting to learn to dive or improve their diving skills.
The dive trips start and end directly in front of the entrance to the centre. Diving and snorkelling equipment is available for hire. Particular attention is paid to diver training. The commencement of courses every day in small groups ensures successful learning outcomes. Because of the exposed dive sites on Gozo, all training and advanced training courses offered are SSI, CMAS and PADI-compliant, as are special courses (wreck diving, diving in sea caves).
