Diving in Gibraltar

Gibraltar situated at the Gateway to the Mediterranean, boasts a spectacular marine biodiversity, with easy access from shore or boat to natural reefs and over 35 wrecks which have been part of Gibraltar’s artificial reef project since the 1980s.

Wrecks such as the 482, a Royal Navy cable laying barge sits upright in a sand flat at 17m depth and only 25m from shore is probably Gibraltar’s most visited dive site. Natural reefs which hold caverns and the elusive grouper are also found within Gibraltar’s Marine reserve.

Further information on dive sites and obtaining a dive permit can be requested from the Department of the Environment Heritage and Climate Change via email:
