Who we are:

Gozo Adventures is a small adventure activity company undergoing some big changes. The company consists of Director Xavier Hancock - adventure sports enthusiast and man of ideas, and Operations Director Cornil Wambergue who tries to keep things on track and organized.

Where we are:

Gozo Adventures operates almost entirely in Gozo, the smaller of the two main Maltese Islands. It is a largely rural island, with a slow pace of life and very strong religion and traditions. Being in the Mediterranean, the surrounding waters are warm, ideal for kayaking, and the rocky coastline provides for world-class cave and tunnel diving, whilst the cliffs provide ample opportunities for rock climbing. The island is a natural playground.

What we’re about:

Gozo Adventures is an eco-friendly company, which aims to be as carbon neutral as possible. On an island where most day trippers travel in jeeps around a set route, we aim to offer eco friendly activities which allow visitors to explore the beauty of the island and experience its history and culture - and of course to try something active and exciting!

What we offer:

For the 2015 season, www.gozoadventures.com are committed to providing snorkeling, introductory diving, rock climbing, abseiling, bouldering, mountain biking, hiking, archery, zip lines, rope bridges and other team building games. We also provide sea kayaking through our sister company Sea Kayak Malta.( www.seakayakmalta.com) ( but tours are primarily on Gozo) These activities operate as half day and full day tours, weekend packages and weeklong tours. Our clients range, from beginner family groups to sports enthusiasts as well as corporate events.
