Two divers dive in Gozo with Diveworld Gozo Ltd in the Inland Sea.

The name Inland Sea comes from the inner lagoon, which is separated by a high cliff from the open sea. This lagoon was created by the flooding of the valley by the sea, which for centuries broke through the cliff, creating a huge, picturesque tunnel. The length of the tunnel is approx. 90m. The tunnel is open, with tourist boats sailing through it on the surface of the water.

We start the dive in the Inland Sea, at a depth of approx. 5m not far from the tunnel entrance. As you swim through the tunnel, you will gradually submerge to about 26m (or 18m for OWD divers). We admire the beautiful geological structures and the colorful sponges that overgrow them. Beyond the tunnel, we continue diving along the cliff on the side of the open sea, where we can count on schools of fish. On the way back we admire the tunnel again, this time at a shallower depth, and finally we make a safety stop and ascend into the Inland Sea.
