This is one of the most spectacular dive sites in Gozo. Diving here is available for divers of all levels. There is a small inland sea and an 80m/262ft long gulley leading to the open sea. Divers entering and surfacing within the gulley must keep to the sides due to the small pleasure boats. Once outside the gulley, the seabed, covered with large and small boulders, suddenly drops further down to 50m/164ft to a sandy bottom.

When to go

Diving is available year-round. The average depth of the site is 18-35m/59-114ft with water visibility of around 20m/65ft. The average air temperature is 10-15C/50-59 F in the winter and 21-30C/70-83F in the summer. The average water temperature is about 14-17C/58-63F from December through April and 18-25C/65-77F from May through November.

What to see

This area is rich with marine life including john dory, octopus, cardinal fish, barracuda, parrot fish and spotted doris.

    Daily diving. This product is for certified divers only. Since the times of Jaques Yves Cousteau and Hans Hass, the Mediterranean Sea mediates fascination to divers. In some parts you might have the impression of bio-diversity depletion, but there are some regions where it still shows its natural beauty and wealth in a variety of species. In almost all weather conditions, we can take you to one of our 35 sites, offering caves, grottos, tunnels, reefs, wrecks, etc, all of which will leave a lasting impression upon you. Upon request, we can offer Day-Trips to Malta as well as Night-Dives and Early Morning Dives. We dive in small groups and all sites can be quickly accessed via our Buses or Boats. Our philosophy is to give an individual service to our clients. After the dives, our center offers ample space to sit and relax.
