Independent Diving


Dive Independently in your own time at your leisure - ideal for dive groups or clubs

It's your holiday so you don't have to be tied to being at the dive centre at set times, diving independently allows you the freedom to come and go as you please, dive when you want - where you want. Our experienced staff are always on hand to advise you of the best dive sites depending on what you want and what the weather allows. As well as a daily weather/wind report we can brief you at the shop on dive sites and what you can expect to see however we do have local maps, diving books and dive guides for sale.

We are open 7 days a week between 08:15 and 18:00 and can make alternative arrangements for tank return if you are planning on a night dive.

Do you meet the Maltese Diving requirements? Please read before going any further.

Maltese Diving Regulations stipulate that to dive independently, all divers must be a minimum of BSAC Sports Diver, CMAS 2 Star, PADI Advanced Open Water Diver or equivalent. Anyone who does not hold any of the above qualification must dive with direct in-water supervision of a Maltese registered Diving Instructor.

If any of your group hold an Instructor qualification, we can register them as temporary Maltese diving Instructors. They would need to produce:-

  • an Instructor Medical signed by a diving physician that is less than 12 months old. (Medicals can be arranged locally if required.)
  • 3rd party liability Insurance
  • and apply for a Temporary Maltese Instructor license - which we can arrange for you at the dive centre.

Our unlimited dive packs include one tank per person & unlimited air fills. If more than one tank per person is required this must be by prior arrangement and is subject to availability.

Particularly in high season - due to limited space we can't guarantee washing facilities for Independent Divers so pre-booking is advised and is charged at €3 per person per day.

Everyone is very helpful and friendly and the equipment available to hire is faultless. I really enjoyed my test dive, and felt safe in the hands of the instructors who have clear and confident instruction. The centre was very well organised and everyone was so friendly. We did 5 dives over 2 days and they were great. Thank you for a lovely relaxed but fun diving experience.

I visited Gozo for a dive holiday with friends and chose to dive through Gozo Aqua Sports. A fabulous decision. All of the staff were so welcoming and friendly and made us feel at home throughout the week. Staff were thorough and extremely helpful in assisting us to select, understand and maintain our equipment. We completed our Open Water course with Martin, a very enthusiastic and knowledgeable instructor who made us feel at ease throughout.

No doubt, Gozo Aqua Sports is the place to be if you want to spend a great diving holiday on Gozo. We started diving with Gail and Patrick more than 20 years ago and this year, the second generation of the family passed the open water course in the same place. There is a well equipped shop and a lot of different diving activities including Tec diving as well as friendly helpful staff.

From the minute we emerged from baggage claim, we were looked after. Gail at GAS had arranged our transfers across the two islands and had our apartment, vehicle keys, and paperwork waiting for us. Gail and GAS instructor Martin were ready with advice on weather and sea conditions to make sure our independent diving went safely. As ever my wife and I had first class friendly and effective service. I wouldn't go anywhere else on Gozo.
