Superfriendly staff, very competitive prices, can-do attitude and great rental equipment! We used Buddies for one week and dived as much as we could. Definitely going to pop in at Buddies again when we get back to Malta! Highly recomended!

Recently dived for a day with Buddies, really good service from the team with good advice regarding when and where to dive. Good equipment available to hire, collected from our hotel and very knowledgeable staff. Would definitely recommend Buddies to anyone wanting to dive in Malta.

We used Buddies for 2 weeks diving and found all the staff really helpful. The shop had a friendly atmosphere and we were looked after great. Nothing was too much trouble for Martin the owner. We would definitely go back again.

I came on holiday with my family and wanted to go diving. none of my family know how to dive so i joined the centre by myself. They were very friendly and easy to talk to. I had no issues with getting to know the staff

We went to malta to do only fun dives. But buddies advised us in the opportunities and we ended up doing the advanced course. It was the best advice they could have given us, because we saw and learned so much more than just as open water divers. Extra credits for Elka, as she was a great fun instructor but... More

I had an amazing 3 day weekend diving trip in Malta with Buddies. Amazing team of professionals made me feel safe at all times and helped me improve as a diver. All the instructors are also great fun to hang around with between dives. We were initially a group of three that were supposed to dive. U fortunately only two... More

I came to Malta to do my Advanced Open Water with Buddies, having not dived for 5 years. I thought this might pose a problem and I'd maybe have to pay for a refresher session to get back into the swing but this wasn't the case. I was assigned George as my instructor, who immediately made me feel calm and... More
