Guided Diving in Gozo in Details

Diving highlights include admiring Gozos’ many caves & tunnels with their electric blue backdrops, visiting the island’s famous wrecks & exploring fascinating geological formations & pinnacles. Let’s not forget the infamous Blue Hole with its Azure Alps, the remainder of the mighty Azure Window which collapsed in a storm in 2017.

Maximum 4 divers to a group means no fighting for space above or below water.

Your tour of Gozo will start with a check dive to make sure that you are ready, weighted, and sorted for the dives ahead (if needed).

Gozo may be a tiny island but it packs a diving punch. When the wind blows North, we dive South, when the wind blows South we dive North. It’s a rare day when there’s no good diving somewhere on the island!

Of course, your diving experiences in Gozo, Malta and Comino can be captured in photos or videos. See our gallery for inspiration. Book a photoshoot or check out our gallery for inspiration!

Why Dive with Us?

Best Instructors

Dive with an instructor who eats, breathes and sleeps sidemount.

Here, Sidemount is not just another course among hundreds of courses - it’s the main event! We exceed all agency standards and make sure you don’t leave the course as a liability on dive sites and boats.

Small Group Sizes

We choose quality over quantity any day!

Small group sizes. 2 divers max per course, 4 divers max per guided dive. Without a doubt, the smaller the group the better the experience.

Personal Approach

Courses are completely tailored to you, your needs and your diving preferences.

Perhaps you want to dive sidemount in a drysuit with steels or on holiday in the tropics with a wetsuit and Ali’s. We’ll make sure you’re confident and ready for anything.

Commitment
to Safety

Learn to sidemount efficiently and safely by focusing on entries, exits and emergency drills.

Diving in sidemount configuration requires extra consideration for keeping yourself and others safe and taking care of emergencies. Become an asset to any dive team by enhancing and practicing your Rescue skills.

The Right Way

Learn skills and procedures at the right level and become fully competent.

Save yourself months of frustration. Many divers take a sidemount course that is far too basic and leaves them with massive gaps in their knowledge and skills. Don’t be that diver. We have invested in our own diving skills and education and we use this base to teach to the highest level.

Is Sidemount suitable for all diving environments?

What type of cylinders will I be using in sidemount?

Can I hire a Diver Propulsion Vehicle (DPV) with sidemount?
