What an amazing group of people. Charlie was fantastic and Conrad thanks for your diving lead. Not only did we thoroughly enjoy the diving, it was so great to find a professional and friendly center. We have been lucky enough to dive at other PADI centres, but I can honestly say, this has been by far our best experience. On... More

Nice staff to dive with. Dive shop could have more share against the sun light while waiting and rinsing your gears. I forgot one day my gears to the dive shop but luckily Casey had one set of extra gears to save my day. What seems to be common in Malta that you go to dive spots by vans etc.... More

I was lucky enough to work in Malta for 5 months. I enquired at Cresta about beginners courses and found they could help. I found the courses and the instructors to be second to none. The guys and girls at Cresta are in my opinion some of the best around. The instruction and diversity of dive sites offered are fantastic.... More

The company is trustworthy and well organised. Very nice and professional people running the show. Small teams for diving what gives you space and time to dive. The equipment is not the newest unfortunately and could be renewed soon. However still very good team to dive with. Prices ok.

My 13 year old son and I have just spent a day and a half with Charlie, Casey and the team at Cresta. Virtually beginners, we did the Discover Scuba course, followed by two fun dives. Casey's description is right: minimum fuss and process, maximum safety and instruction and maximum time in the water. Their instructor/ student ratio is very... More

First time diving in Malta and did what most probably do - sent off a host of emails to various shops and checked Trip Advisor. The emails from Charlie at Cresta Dive Centre were prompt and helpful and set the tone of the shop. She advised booking in advance as. They were busy, which I did. Good thing too as... More

I did my PADI OW certification with Cresta. I contacted them prior to flying to Malta to check availability. Found email communication with Charlie of high standard which was one of the reasons for choosing Cresta. They are well organised and everyone in there is very friendly and helpful. I will dive with them again when in Malta.
