I've done quite a bit of diving in quite a few place and found this centre exceptional. The equipment was in good order and you were kitted up with a minimum of fuss. Dives were organised with the diver's experience in mind and led by knowledgeable experienced divers. The cost for diving was reasonable but if I did have to... More

Firstly, the important bits: Casey and the team were very easy to get on with, and took care of all the arrangements (including gear, etc.) with a minimum of fuss. They did their best to accommodate me, a fairly experienced diver, who only had a couple of mornings to see a bit of what Malta had to offer. My main... More

I have dived very intermittently over the past 10 years with various centres, but it was a mix of the Maltese waters and the Cresta Dive centre that re confirmed my love for diving. In the last few years I have been back to see these folks a few times now, it's as much the faces at Cresta that brings... More

Charlie & Casey and their fellow instructors always look after us - we (a group of 5) have been to Cresta for a long weekend in October or November for the last 5 years. Each dive is explained, our weaker diver is assisted when needed and our safety always comes first. The dive sites (especially on Gozo) are superb and... More

Since I used Crestas services off season my experience might be a little special. First reason why I chose Cresta: the staff is very responsive to email and calls and made me feel like they really wanted me to have a good experience. When I showed up I had already completed all the theory before hand and had a good... More

Perfect, friendly and can't do enough for you! They place your safety first and aren't like other centres on the island that just want your money! No matter what the weather they will find a site to dive, couldn't ask for a more friendlier dive team very impressed and will definatetly use them again. Well Done Casey, Conny, Charlie, Brian...

If you are looking for the best knowledge of all the dive sites in Malta, look no further! KC and his team offer safe and professional diving to all abilities. Their ability to deliver the best dive experiences is only mimicked by the other dive centres, so don't waste your time if you are looking to qualify or dive on... More
