Who are we?

We're Aaron and Marion, passionate divers living on a small island in the Mediterranean. We met while diving here in Gozo and have since swapped German Brezels and French croissants for Maltese Pastizzi. We love outdoor activities, like hiking, running and sunset barbecues! We never miss an opportunity to discover every corner of the island and would be delighted to share it with you, whether underwater or on land.

Aaron

My diving dream: To introduce local youth to scuba diving so they can discover what the ocean has to offer on their doorstep and raise awareness to protect the ocean

Marion

My diving dream: Becoming a DDI Instructor (Disableable Diver International), to give as many people as possible access to diving.

Dive Sites

Malta and Gozo can accommodate every level of divers, and all kinds of diving. Reef, wrecks, caverns, caves, tunnels, you’ll be stocked by the underwater topography! Here's a glimpse of our amazing dive sites:

Frequently Asked Questions

Many divers are coming to Gozo and they don't know what to expect. That's why we've answered some of the most frequently asked questions :

We’re opened and dive all year long. During winter (December to March), the water is colder but the dive sites are less busy, you’ll have abundant sea life and have the ocean for yourself. The water temperature is between 14°C to 16°C. From April, the weather is nicer and the water temperature increases, from June to October it can be between 24°C to 28°C but there’s of course more divers underwater! The temperature starts to decrease slowly back to 20°C in November.
You have to bring your swimsuit, towel, sunscreen and any proof of certification (if you have one). We provide water + snacks for our customers at the dive centre. If there’s anything you might think useful to bring, feel free to take it with you (such as dry clothes, any diving gear...).
At Utina we have a “Dive your tank” policy. Your dive time underwater will not be limited (like some other dive centres tend to do). We want you to get the most out of your dives, so we keep diving until the first diver of the group reaches 50 bar (safety reserve) and as long you feel comfortable.
It is! But be aware that it’ll depend on your certification level and the weather. We usually choose the evening before which dive sites we’re going as it’ll depend on the wind and waves. If the weather doesn’t allow us to dive a specific site, we’ll offer you another option + we’ll always try to accommodate your request the next days. When contacting us, feel free to list the ones you would like to do and we’ll do our best to make it happen!
As most of the wrecks in Malta are deeper than 20 meters, you’ll need to hold at least an Advanced Open Water certification and preferably the Deep Speciality if you want to get the most of it. If you’re an Open water diver, we can always offer you to dive on the P31 wreck situated on Comino Island, where we usually organize weekly boat trips there (from April to October). Otherwise it's a great opportunity to continue your education with an Advanced Open Water or Deep Speciality course to improve your knowledge and skills and to dive the wrecks!
Wether you’re coming for a first experience or fun diving, you’ll need to complete a medical form (Diver Medical). If you have any medical conditions listed on this form, we’ll ask you to get a medical ‘fit to dive’ from your doctor. If you can't get an appointment before coming to Malta, we can get you in touch with a local doctor on Gozo.
