This review will not take long, because I don't think Epic Staff, Epic service, Epic Dives and Epic advice need much explanation I went to Buddies to do my DSD, loved it so much , went back the next day for extra dives. I am now completely hooked. The experience was fantastic and that come down to the total professional... More

Can only concur with all the previous good reviews. Myself and daughter just enjoyed 4 days diving with Buddies. Good communication with Martin before we arrived. Everybody at the centre friendly and helpful. Enjoyed our dive days with Jordan and George. Well organised, easy and relaxed days. Will definitely use Buddies next time we are in Malta.

The staff are great, they explain everything properly and even give little talks about any sights we drive past. Great equipment, I had no trouble with anything in 10 dives and they will drive you to and from your hotel. Definitely going back to them next time.

Great dive centre, with enthusiastic young team of instructors. We took our Advance O/W with Jordan, who although young was supportive and encouraging. Dive sites had good viz and although busy not too crowded. Equipment & wetsuits were available to hire, typical quality for a dive centre. If you want brand new - take your own. We left our equipent... More

Half March we went with four friends to Malta for a dive holiday. Recommended was to dive with Buddies by a friend, glad we listened to him. A very good instructor(Bjorn, Belgium) for our Advanced Open Water, speaks also multiple languages which makes it easy for people to communicate with him. A panic attack during the night dive and wreck... More

I can't say enough about my experience with Buddies. Martin and his team are friendly, professional, and easy to work with. With a week to spend in Malta recently, I finally managed to fulfill a lifelong ambition to get my Open Water certificate. I am 69 years old and by no means an athlete. Special credit goes to my excellent... More
