All of the staff here are very friendly and helpful. The instructors, in particular, were always really patient even if it took a few attempts to get something right. They were very knowledgeable about the best dive spots in the area which made the overall experience all the better. I will definitely be back and would recommend Buddies to anyone.

Our 9th year with Buddies. We thought 18 students taking their open water would stretch any dive centre's facilities, but Buddies lovely staff were faultlessly professional, happy and full of fun all week. There was a lot of hard work going on to make our experience completely stress free. Some students were really anxious before they experienced the Buddies treatment.... More

I've just come back from a week in Malta with Buddies. It was my first time diving and the friendly instructors instantly made us all feel calm and safe. Amazing dive school with such brilliant instructors, really keen to return to them next year to do my advanced course!

Good mob that you can't miss thanks to the bright yellow store and even brighter personalities. Did three days of diving here and was well looked after. The groups I went out with were smaller and with different experience levels but we were well split, sorted and guided.

First ever diving experience doing my Open Water course and had an incredible time diving at all the breathtaking locations. Jordan and Chloe were amazing instructors and made everyone feel so at ease and safe even though it was our first time diving. The other instructors were also so helpful and friendly and the whole group got on so well.... More

The amount of things I saw and learned about was epic! All of the instructors are really funny, friendly and helpful! If I didn't already have a plan for my future this would be it! Cannot wait to come back next year and hopefully do my advance course! Big thanks to Buddies :)
