Dived last week with Watercolours, 3rd year running.In my eyes the best dive centre on Malta as I've dived with several others previously. Jason runs a great operation catering from training new divers up to offering guided fun dives and technical diving trips. Myself and my 13 year old son, Jake dived twice with Paddy and four times with Sergio. As ever the diving was a pleasure with an emphasis on safety but always enjoyable. Looking forward to the next time we're in Malta and diving from your new boat. Keep up the good work Jason Ian and Jake.

Watercolours is a truly excellent dive centre run by professionals who are passionate about diving, have decades of experience they are generous to share, and who are committed to providing an outstanding service. We were in Malta for a week and spent most of our time diving, including a night dive and a wreck course. Jason, Sergio, Paddy and Carolina went out of their way to accommodate the wishes and needs of every diver while making safety and security a priority, and giving feedback and advice to help you improve with every dive. While we had our own gear, I would not have hesitated to rent it from the centre as the quality of the equipment for rent seemed very good. The centre can also cater to the needs of more technical divers with twinsets and sidemount kits. This was our first dive trip to Malta and we were not disappointed: the wrecks were fantastic and the visibility was great. However, what made the trip truly memorable and what makes us want to return soon is the friendliness and the generosity of the staff at Watercolours.

The owner and staff of Watercolours Dive Center are knowledgeable, personable and accommodating. My partner and I chose to dive with WDC over New Year. Our diving instructor, David, helped us to feel comfortable and safe while learning our skills in the natural confined water pool and open water. I have significant difficulty maintaining warmth and often panic underneath the water. Both David and Jason found solutions to these problems (warmer gear, shorter sessions, etc.) while still meeting the course requirements. David's patience is admirable and Jason's sense of humor helped lighten the mood. Near the end of our course, storm weather made it unsafe to dive at our center for a few days. WDC took us to alternative locations nearby so that we could continue, and postponed our final dive - allowing us to enjoy great weather and bring an additional diver. All members of our diving party greatly enjoyed the experience! We highly recommend Watercoulors Dive Center!

Hi Kara, Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review. We really try our best to give the best possible service. All diving outfits are more or less the same and offer more or less of the same products. The only way to distinguish oneself is to really give of oneself. We really LOVE what we do and we really love meeting and spending real time with our guests. Thank you once again for choosing Watercolours Dive Centre and we do hope to see you both again in the near future. WDC Team

Booked over the phone with Jason (great guy) for two tank dives and he suggested (weather permitting) we visit the Um-Il-Faroud dive wreck. We were not disappointed. Two tank dive to 30+ meters to visit the bow (dive 1) and the aft (dive 2 - better of the two dives). Had a look around and inside the wreck. Plenty of fish (especially around the aft) and things to look at/explore. Special mention to David (our guide). Best guide I've ever dived with. Supper relaxed and extremely knowledgeable. These two dives were the deepest we have dived to but he managed to make them extremely relaxing and thoroughly enjoyable. 100% would dive with these guys again.

Thank you so much for your positive comments. We always strive to give our guests the best possible service. The now trendy name to describe our operation is similar to a boutique hotel & we are very proud to offer such personalized attention & care. It does rub off on most of our guests and we really appreciate the time you have taken to notice our efforts in such a review. Thanks again & we hope to meet and dive with you In the future.
