Introduction

Here at Deep med, we push the boundaries of regular and ordinary freediving experiences, setting a unique standard of education, knowledge and experience. We have an exclusive boat setup, granting access to unique freediving spots around the islands, inaccessible by land and surrounded by breath-taking views. We pride ourselves for this set-up, enhancing your underwater adventure in unchartered waters whilst always striving to keep education as it’s highest.

Malta & Gozo as a European Freediving destination.

Malta & Gozo, situated at the heart of the mediterranean, are very well connected as a freediving destination in Europe. The islands are a freedivers dream; plenty of caves and wrecks to play with and to top it all off, easy access to depth. More so in Gozo. In fact, Gozo as a freediving destination is more appealing to the average freediver, mainly due to its shape and cover from the wind.

Getting to Malta

Convenient international connections will bring you to the heart of the Mediterranean, Malta & Gozo. Malta International Airport has extensive airline coverage and provides access from all the major cities across the globe. If you’re interested in culture and history, grab a taxi on arrival and head straight to Valletta; the capital of Malta that flourishes with history. Conveniently, the fast ferry to Gozo operates from the city, which takes approximately 45 minutes.

Transfer to Gozo

The journey to Gozo, Malta’s sister island, is an experience in itself. There are two ferries both operating from a different location. The Gozo Fast ferry  (passenger only)is the one we recommend that sets off from Valletta ,which is only a 10 minute taxi from the Ariport. The fast ferry takes approximately 45 minutes. The second option is the slower ferry (passenger and car) from Cirkewwa which takes 20 minutes to cross the channel. This ferry offers more of a scenic routre with views of Comino.  Both options present a glimpse of the archipelago’s beauty, easing you into the tranquil pace of island life.

Why Gozo, other than Malta?

Around 4 years ago, we moved away from Malta. Here are just a few reasons why we did

  • Tranquil and less crowded
  • Unique underwater terrain
  • Ultimate protection from the wind
  • Accessibility of many dive sites
  • Views from the water whilst freediving

Accommodation

Deep Med offers exclusive accommodation in our Gozitan townhouse, designed with the freediver in mind. Located in the serene town of Xaghra, our townhouse is a haven of comfort, complete with a pool for freediving practice​​. For those seeking alternative options, Gozo boasts a variety of accommodations, from cozy Airbnbs to luxurious stays on Booking.com. Victoria, the island’s capital, is recommended for its convenience to public transport and central location​​.

Freediving Courses, Excursions, Coaching, and Training

Our range of courses and coaching programs cater to every level freediver, from beginners to advanced. Our choice for education is the Molchanovs certification courses, but our recommendation for the improvement of freediving skills would be our coaching programs. Adventure diving is something we include once on a weekly basis. Gozo is riddled with underwater rock formations and caves with playful swim-throughs and endless deep, electrifying blues! Malta & Comino have playful wrecks, sitting on a sea-bed of white sand.

How We Do It

Step by step, we will asses you in the water and feed you information which would be limited by how quickly you absorb it. We will slowly work on new skills as well as build on old ones; both on land, and in the water. A process that takes work, patience, time and dedication, but will leave you diving in peace and joy. We will support you in the water every step of the way. This is our objective, this is our mission.
