So I'm back diving with these guys for the 3rd time this year. Great diving with the best and experienced instructors that I entrust. I feel I get the very best out of my diving whilst learning. Can't recommend them enough. Always happy to help and guide me to become a better diver

They took us to P31 shipwreck and Santa Maria caves - both dive sites were excellent. All the guides were very friendly and helpful. Very well organized day and experience, would highly recommend diving with them to enjoy the most of your day.

Found Cresta online a few months before I decided to travel to Malta. Was in email contact and told then my intentions to travel over and learn to dive. I was then advised to do the eLearning to save time in a classroom whilst on holiday and it is worth its weight in gold. I arrived late on the Wednesday... More

I spent two days diving with cresta this summer and over all had a great experience. From the start they communicated with me quickly and with lots of info. I had made a specific request for a deep dive as I hadn't done one before and they were able to accommodate me. On the first day we drove to the... More

Our family has recently returned from diving with Cresta. After 15 years of diving, I had thought I would just stick to snorkelling whilst my husband and 12 year old son continued diving... however Charlie managed to persuade me to give it another go. To fine tune my skills, instructor Mark's suggestion I attended Peak Performance Buoyancy course and regained... More

They took good care of me when I was doing my first open water dives. I felt secure and I had a good time! The only down side was the small facilities of getting changed...since it was beginning of April it got I bit cold. Thank you guys!

Nice atmosphere and felt really safe with Cresta staff which was upmost important for me as a beginner. I was looked after well and my buddy was a professional instructor with a relaxed but secure attitude and good pedagogical skills.

My wife and I booked at Cresta to complete our Open Water Diving qualification. We got a really quick and helpful response from Charlie who got us booked in and gave us the option of completing our theory training online (although a little more expensive, I'd definitely recommend doing this for the holiday time you can save - it took...

We were thrilled to find Cresta when looking for an alternative to the first diving center wie were with during our vacation here in St. Julien's, Malta. The team is super friendly, caring and highly professional. Marc was a great instructor to go dive with, very calm and patient. Charlie was very helpful and flexible, even when rescheduling. Great and... More
