Spent 5 days doing 10 dives around the island and on Gozo. Professional but friendly with staff who inspired confidence but also made diving what it should be - FUN. George as guide was cracking and lewis as well. But everyone was good.

This is a well equipped friendly diving centre. Very flexible and was able to tailor the dives for us. With safety as their main priority. Although we used our own gear, their own equipment looked first class. The centre is well set up for training. A special thanks to George for looking after us throughout all our dives.

First dive is quite an experience, really exciting, you're led by the... More
