The staff at Buddies Dive Cove couldn't have been more helpful. We were picked up at our apartment on time every morning, provided with good quality kit and driven to the dive site (with points of interest picked out along the way). The dive briefings were thorough and our guides behaviour in the water was extremely professional and perfectly tailored... More

Completed Cirkewwa Left & Right Arches in Malta. Only qualified to 18m I dive for one day each holiday. So with slight skill fade I approached Buddies Dive Cove in Bugibba Malta. The service is superb! Cheapest dives to date! With a no fuss, nice & relaxed friendly atmosphere. The team of professional dive masters, leaders & instructors guide you... More

First time diving and doing my Open Water course, with a great set of different diving locations that we dived in over the week. Opened my eyes to diving, with a great team of staff that are organised, professional and extremely nice and easy to approach. The all in all experience was great and cant wait to return next year!

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.

I came here for 5 days of diving and it was one of the best experiences of my life.

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!
