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

What a time at Cresta, i've been twice so far, last summer and the one before. Charlie (one of the owners) ensures that groups are no more than 4 to an instructor, so perfect for safety and enjoyment alike. All staff were professional and great fun to be around. Every dive site was incredible, the water visibility is top-notch and... More

From the first email contact through to 4 great days of diving we were very impressed with the friendly and professional service of the Cresta dive team. The weather wasn't great, but with their local knowledge they knew where we could still do some great diving safely. We would highly recommend them to novice or experienced divers.

Stayed out of season in Malta for business and had some spare hours for a dive. Most dive-centers were closed but Cresta was fully operational. Quick reply to my email request, arranged a buddy, equipment and a nice wreck dive in the Valetta harbour. Great service and very professional. Francis (3* CMAS / dive master).

Worst 2 days storms in the Med. for Years. Thanks to the crew at Cresta dive centre still managed to have 3 great and safe dives in sheltered spots - Harbour, Wreck and Reef. Amazing what good local knowledge and a professional team can do. Thanks to Charlie, Casey and Cony for a great pre-Christmas break.
