Spaces: 8 (fully booked now, but you may apply to be on waiting list)
Participants: Mark, Alan, Josef + 5 others
When? We are flying out on the 23rd Oct morning (Sat) and back on 30th Oct evening (Sat). There will be 6 full days of diving (Sunday to Friday), planning to dive about 12-15 dives (2/3 dives a day), with possibility of additional night dives. You can decide to dive on some days only to do sightseeing instead, it is very flexible, or come for a partial week, please contact us to discuss - email@example.com
We are diving with DiveSMART Gozo - PADI 5 Stars Instructor Development Centre Dive Resort, which offers courses for beginners, advanced or refresher courses if required. We will do our best to align on diving schedules/sites for the whole group with different diving abilities or trainings together. Most dives are shore diving but with possibility to go on boat trips not far away. Also, we expect there will be a few non divers (friends/partners) joining too, and it's flexible so that you may not want to dive or join the group every single day.
Around the coastal areas of Gozo, you will be able to discover some of the pristine underwater world in its natural beauty. DiveSMART Gozo offers you a chance to discover the delights of the diverse marine life and dramatic underwater topography which brings divers back to the Island year after year.
The clear, crystal warm waters have almost no currents or tidal movement, enabling us to discover the rugged underwater scenery and extraordinary marine life that inhabit these Islands. The scenery above water with steep cliffs, caves and valleys is almost mirrored in the underwater world; both are truly breath-taking.
There are some famous dive sites, such as Blue Hole, Inland Sea, Cathedral Cave. For a list of top dive sites near by, take a look at this page - https://www.divemalta-gozo.com/dive-sites/
