We have been diving with Gozo Aquasports for 6 years now and, as always, we had a fantastic all round diving experience this year. Patrick and his team are so professional and knowledgeable and their standards of safety, attention to detail and customer care are excellent . You just know you are in very experienced, very capable and very safe hands. Barry our Guide was great, very friendly, very thorough and he looked after us incredibly well. Nothing was too much trouble. We had a brilliant time diving in Gozo this year, it was great fun and very relaxed. Thank you. I would thoroughly recommend Gozo Aquasports for both dive training and recreational guided diving.

Most dive-centers on Gozo probably are great outfits with excellent standards. I was, however, looking for something beyond that. I do not care so much about the whole staff wearing the same fancy T-shirt or a shiny polished shop: I want to be with people who really know diving and want to feel their love for this sport. Besides, I am always interested in learning something new, even after twenty years going underwater.

That is exactly what I found in the past few weeks at Gozo Aqua Sports. The whole place oozes dive history. Owner Patrick, who has been a PADI member for almost forty years, is a walking scuba encyclopedia and does not hold back in taking an opportunity to help out. His pragmatic approach helped me solve practical issues many times. He managed to assemble a staff around him that has tons of experience in the sport and makes one immediately feel at home, and safe in the water.

Sure, the paint on the outside logo is peeling, and the center has some corners with odd paraphernalia; but let that not fool you: the people at GAS truly know diving and put their hearts into it. Therefor I can highly recommend this center to both novices and experienced divers, who both will find here something that goes beyond the usual.

A number of friends in the UK recommended GAS using phrases like "meticulous", "reliable" and "best ever" so I had total confidence when we turned up after booking from the UK. Patrick warmly welcomed us, and a quick glance around the shop, workshop and kit area it was obvious that there was a place for everything and everything in its place.
I only needed cylinders and weights, my wife needed nearly everything and her gear was all perfect in every way.
We used GAS guides too who were all pleasant and knowledgeable in equal measure. I loved diving the Karwela and Cominoland with John, and can also recommend Ras Il-Hobz for marine life.
Thanks Guys, see you soon!

We had great fun. Super professional, super fun. We did two dives, one starter dive, and one dor. More experienced diver, they were really attentive and helpful, build our confidence and then judged our capabilities perfectly. Really well equip centre and very very experienced dive instructors. What a place to dive. Loved it!

We recently returned to Gozo, in order for our eldest daughter to obtain her PADI Open Water Dive . My husband Phil dived with GAS a few years ago, and my eldest daughter had a try dive at the same time, we always said we would return and here we are ! We had no hesitation in choosing Patrick and his team again! Barry was an amazing instructor, keeping our teenage daughter in check ! Really knowledgeable & experienced in all areas of diving. She cried when we had to say our goodbyes, that’s says it all really…. Fantastic !!!
It was then our youngest daughters (aged 11 ) turn to have a try dive with John, she absolutely loved it, John was amazing at keeping the instructions simple, but effective. She came out of the water with the biggest smile ever !!!
This is an extreme sport, so it is paramount to choose the right diving school, this is definitely the dive centre to choose. Excellent maintained equipment, super organised & friendly.
Thank you so much Patrick,Barry & John for making our holiday so memorable and for taking care of my family, We will back again……Barbara. 😊🐙

I have been diving with Gozo Aquasports for nearly 20 years and have always found them great to dive with. Their standards of professionalism and safety are first class and the instructors/dive masters are always attentive to each divers requests/needs and the dive groups are usually no more than 4 people. What owner Patrick does not know about dive equipment isn’t worth knowing and he is always ready to effect a repair in the workshop if needed. It is always telling that most of the people you find yourself diving with are returning customers!

We had a great time for our first time ever scuba diving! Even in the beginning of january, we had great weather and a perfect spot for diving. We spent a really good time with John who was an excellent instructor. Everyone was very friendly!

PS: John, if you ever read this, and still happen to have the picture you took underwater of us, we would be super happy to have it ;)

Diving with Gozo Aqua Sports for many years now and I have to say it is still great fun especially this year with Barry our guide . For those of you who could be described as ‘slightly nervous divers’ you are in good hands . These guys are calm patient and very knowledgeable. The equipment is good and kept well .Patrick has a wealth of knowledge for those of you who are more technical.Barry has a passion for teaching even for experienced divers ,I was learning new things every dive ! We had a fabulous time especially Xlendi with a shoal of Barracuda ! Thank you Barry.We look forward to many more dives with you guys .
Thank you so much .

We (two adults, CMAS**) were here for one week in October 2020. The staff is very friendly and helpful. We have been diving unaccompanied and only needed tanks and weights. The equipment is in very good condition, everything is clean and well maintained. Price-performance ratio super! The organization on the base is just perfect!

We would come back anytime!
