We booked 6 dives spread out over a week in Malta, the people were all great and took care of all transportation too and from anywhere we needed. Recommended dive sites were good and we feel we got a good price. -Team Denmark :)

I would strongly recommend... More

I did several dives with Buddies over the curse of a week and every one of them was fantastic. All of the dives, including 4 on the Um El Faroud, were unique and interesting and I can safely say that I had one of the best dives of my life with Buddies. The instructors and dive masters are all top... More

It was fun, it was professional and it was safe. It was also a shame we didn't quite get into Um El Faroud due to the strong current. Still, we managed a glimpse and got out alive and well. What little of their equipment I used, it was good, and they took into consideration my reasonable inexperience for any necessary... More

Took a school trip here and they were very accommodating. Helped out both myself and the pupils and provided great knowledge and experience in a friendly environment. Accept no other! Special thanks to Gripper and Tom.

Second time of diving with Buddies and again a great time. These people are real professionals and always put safety first but also very friendly and welcoming. Would recommend for new and experienced divers. I will book my dives with Buddies next time I'm in Malta. Thank you everyone for a brilliant time see you all again soon
