If you want to dive in Malta - the Cresta Dive Centre staff are definitely the right people to assist you! Being a beginner, I had many questions (some seemed silly to write!) and queries before coming to Malta. Charlie was fantastic at answering all my emails promptly and making me feel relaxed and reassured about coming to dive! The... More

After starting my scuba diving journey in Thailand last year I couldn't wait to get back underwater, I decided to come to Malta to do my Advanced Open Water course. Cresta Dive was recommended to my by a local hostel and I was not disappointed! Charlie was the nicest, she was really accomodating when it came to arranging the dives... More

As part of lads dive dive trip I couldnt of ask for a better crew of people to provide us with what Malta has to offer. Charlie was very welcoming and helpful upon arriving at the centre. Our guild Casey was very professional as was our dive masters. It was very clear Casey knew every dive like the back of... More

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
