We did the 'discover scuba diving'- they showed us a video, explained some skills and then took us out to the bay to practise the skills and do a short dive. We were out there for 30 minutes. Our instructor, Scotty, was a very good teacher explaining things clearly. There was just the two of us as well- no huge... More

The big plus for me was the 8am start. you get back to dive centre before 1pm and your first on the wreck,, result... the barracuda were there but not for... More

In a short period Alex tought us how to dive and get our PADI. Today we finished our first diving experience with a nice tour in northern Malta. All the staff was extremely friendly and we would both dive again with them when we are in Malta!

Booked through the website for my girlfriend and I to try the discover scuba diving as we both have never dived before. The correspondence between myself and Charlie was brilliant from the outset through email. Our instructor we incredibly patient and helpful throughout the dive, got to see numerous fish and a couple of octopus. The experience overall was outstanding... More

Thank you to the instructor Scotty and to the dive master Ali for taking us on our try dive. Made us feel very well looked after but also delivered the lessons and skills efficiently to give us a long dive round the bay.

Cresta Dive Centre is excellent from any point of view. The staff is extremely friendly, helpful and professional. My sister and I took the Open Water Course with Scott Thomson as our instructor. He was patient with us and made everything fun. We couldn't have asked for a better instructor. We both are a bit shy, but after the first... More

We have used Cresta now for the last 3 years to do a bit of diving when visiting Malta. Both myself and my son (now 13) have done a range of dives for beginners and have enjoyed it tremendously. The staff are all friendly and helpful and we were reassured by the one to one tuition and attention to safety... More

I’m a relatively new Advance Open Diver with about 60 dives from various parts of the world, mostly the Caribbean. I found Cresta to be a highly professional, efficient shop. I appreciated the small groups and what I consider a more cautious approach to taking divers out. The first dive was largely to get us acclimated to our new environment... More

Well once again I've had an amazing dive experience with Cresta !!! This time I brought my other half who loved it here too. The staff bent over backwards to help me dive my wish list of dive sites in Malta. They also accommodated us as a couple very well, we are different levels so whilst we did some dives... More
