If you value your safety, time and money, I would suggest avoiding Dive Systems at all costs. The management lacks professionalism. Without going into great detail, Alexia, one of the owner-managers laid hands on me in an extremely inappropriate manner. The police were called and a complaint submitted to the local authorities and PADI. There are plenty of other dive... More

This Lady has REFUSED to pay a bill of 500EUR, no one laid hands on her but tried to stop her for running away!! She was offered many different solutions and till today she refuses to pay... We never encountered such a situation before with any of our clients in more than 40 years in business! More

I stayed in Malta for a 2-weeks language course and in the end of my holiday I wanted to try out diving for the first time. The booking for the discover scuba diving course was easy and fast. On the diving day I was together with 3 other guys. Our instructor - Alesandro Bustillo - was a funny, easy-going and... More

DS is a big center, which gives you the advantage of multiple options both in dive sites, instructors and fellow divers (easy to find a group on your own level and a site to match the group's wishes and capabilities). From the first inquiry I sent to the goodbye on last day I felt very well taken care of. Safety... More

I did my Rescue Course with Rich assisted by his Divemaster Martin and they were both superb. Although the course was intense and given its nature seriously taken it still managed to be a fun experience. Would highly recommend this Dive Shop to anyone wanting to dive in Malta. Thanks Guys.

We recently went to Malta as a technical diving group to do some of the deeper wrecks around Malta. I was very impressed with every aspect of the trip, from organising accommodation and pickups from the airport through to provision of cylinders and gasses and charter of the dive boat Galaxy skippered by Kevin who was also first class.

Five stars is not a generous enough review. From the moment my sister and I walked into this dive shop, safety was their first priority. Despite the inconvenience, they required one of us to get a doctor's note due to a medical condition. Because it was no fault of ours, they did not charge any sort of cancellation fee and... More

I just came back from diving a week with Dive Systems. I primarily went for the Self Reliant course, but also did some 10 fundives. The organisation was excellent, especially considering the things going one when whole groups of divers had to be prepared or when they got back. Getting back to my Self Reliant: after the 3 dives, I... More
