Ritual is INCLUSIVE. We believe in this so much that we’ve included it in our name. That’s right, the A isn’t upside down for nothing, it’s actually the symbol that means ‘for all’ in mathematics. At Ritual, we live for the spirit of adventure and we want to make sure this can be seen in whatever we do. We are excited at the chance to give our explorers the best possible experience by making sure we focus on their needs and make sure they have fun and they’re safe whenever they’re with us. We’re patient with our explorers and we inspire them to make their possibilities a reality. With our years of experience in the dive industry, we want to build bonds and a level of trust between our divers to make sure they get the most they can out of every experience. We make sure that everything we offer has no hidden surprises and we’re always honest and approachable in our daily operations.

As Gozo’s newest and most pioneering dive facility, we create highly skilled, safe and eco-conscious divers. We’re crazy for adventure, passing on this infectious spirit through everything we do, from entry-level courses to professional courses, and even our fun dives too.


We work hard to create a comfortable environment for all of our divers and staff in this idyllic Mediterranean setting – this in no way compromises our commitment to safety and conservation both above and below the surface.


We’ve got our sights set on being ‘the’ place of choice for dive training and fun diving in Gozo and Malta. And we hope to achieve this by creating tailor made experiences that help our divers learn new skills, as well as providing them with a hub for like-minded people to discuss their passions and interests. Through friendliness in our day-to-day operations we’ll build life long bonds with our divers and already can’t wait to welcome back familiar faces again and again.

Everyone’s got their Ritual. Our’s just happens to be diving. We believe that diving is ‘for all’ and that the preparation is part of the adventure. Our planning and preparation started over 2 years ago on an idyllic tropical island in the Gulf of Thailand. We wanted to draw on our previous adventures and bring our own perspective to Europe. Having roots in Malta already, we began our search for potential locations. When we spotted an opportunity in the heart of Xlendi Bay that not only had a dive centre just a stone throw away from the sea but also included a hotel and bar/restaurant, we just had to find a way to bring our dream to life. After extensive planning, we opened at the end of March ‘19 and we just can’t wait to share our experience with you. Our team’s can-do’ attitude coupled with our extensive experience in both the hospitality and diving industry, makes this a winning combination for you explorers looking for that little bit extra.
