Double Arch Marsalforn - Gozo
Double Arch is just outside the salt pans in Marsalforn. This is a spectacular site for experienced divers. Imagine a t-shaped reef at 16 meters with steep drop offs on either side to 40 meters. On rounding the corner, we will see two natural arches above each other. After a zigzag through the arches, we will slowly start our ascent until the top of the reef. The site is home to many fish species. Here you will see big barracuda, dentex, and amberjack very close.
The site is possible to visit from land, in this case we recommend to use DPV, otherwise the swim is very long. In this case at the outer wall a nice cavern can be found at 35 m. After the site drops to 50+ meters, and a comfortable 10 minutes scooter ride can take you the the Double Arch.
If you do it as technical dive, you can visit the Triple Arch on the same dive. For recreational divers we usually do that as a second dive.
Also possible to approach the site by boat in order to spend more time on the reef. Double Arch reef will certainly be one of the best dives of your holiday and one to remember.
Recommended level minimum Advanced Open Water, even better with Deep Speciality
For technical divers, be at least Tec 45 or Decompression Procedures certified.
