My friend and I feel very lucky that our holiday went ahead and we managed to get our open water diver certification with Aqua Venture. They are a family run business and you get the individual attention that you don’t always get from the big companies. Our instructor Lee was so patient with us, and really made us feel at ease. I still can’t believe how far I have come since the first dive, all thanks to Lee. It feels kind of weird to be sharing our lovely experience here during a pandemic but we felt safer during our dives (and in Malta) than when we were in the UK to be honest. They have been the most careful regarding all things Covid. Hand sanitisers were always available and we all had to wear masks everywhere up until the point of going in the water. We all maintained social distancing the whole time.

We had such a lovely time - things felt calm for the first time in about 8 months, we are so grateful for that. We haven’t taken a single second for granted. Thank you so so much guys, we can’t wait to be back! 💛

Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a review. You both worked very hard to get your open water qualification, and we are very happy you enjoyed your time with us. Looking forward to welcoming you both back to Malta in the future. Stay safe and safe diving.

We chose Mellieha for its reputation for great scuba diving and then Aquaventure based upon its excellent reviews. We even chose our hotel to be close to Aquaventure which is based at the Luna hotel complex.
From answering initial queries, to booking, to diving every aspect was handled efficiently and professionally.
We did six dives with Lee, a mix of boat/shore and wreck/leisure dives. Every dive was well prepared, we were given clear instructions and help if needed. The focus was on safe, relaxing dives which suited us perfectly and we enjoyed every moment.
I wouldn’t hesitate to dive with Lee again and we are planning to return. Thanks for making our holiday a great one !
I would recommend Aquaventure to anyone looking for a dive shop in Mellieha whether as beginners or more experienced divers.

I cannot rate Lee high enough she is an outstanding patient diver, as someone who had dived once, she gave me her full attention, taking me through our checks with clarity and support.
I personally had a great time on one to one basis without her experience I would have missed the first sighting of the octopus in its natural habitat.
Anyone who wants a professional approach go see Lee

This was a wonderful experience.

I can't swim and checked beforehand and that doesn't stop you Scuba-ing. Learned the basics of using the equipment and was guided round the <12m (learner) area by Lee.

Both Lee and Paul are really friendly and I whole heartedly recommend trying this while you're here and who knows you might see a parrot fish and fire Worm 🐟

I started with one guided dive with Paul and Lee and it was a fantastic experience. All equipment prepared, clear intro, proper weight check at beginning of the dive, great care during getting in and out of water, great dive. I rented all the equipment and it was of a very good quality.

I was so happy with the overall experience and quality of service during the recreational dive that I decided to take a SSI specialty course with Lee on the following day. Lee is a very patient, supportive, and attentive teacher, with a good sense of humour. I am not a native English speaker and my default communication style is fairly different from Lee's. She handled the communication perfectly, despite the differences. I appreciate very much that Lee covered not only the course's technical topics but also the behavioral side of a dive, both at the individual and team level. She provided amazingly detailed feedback on my recreational dive in that respect. The course was an even better experience than the rec dive.

I will start planning my diving vacation in Malta by contacting Lee and Paul, because I am confident they will provide service of outstanding quality.

If you're thinking about booking a diving trip I highly recommend booking with Lee. We booked the discover scuba diving as it was our first timing doing this and Lee couldn't have been more accommodating and reassuring to make us feel at ease and safe. The dive itself was incredible and the views were amazing, we saw so many pools of fish!!! Lee made sure we're were okay and comfortable each time before we dove deeper each time. The only downside is I didn't book enough days to come back and do more.

Located in the heart of Mellieha Bay, Lee and Paul are an amazing diving team! After a December 2019 visit to Malta, we knew that we wanted to stay further north and this dive shop offers immediate access (less than 5 minute drive) to the main onshore diving point of Cirkewwa. We took our advanced open water certification course with Lee and we are extremely pleased with the level of service and attention. Because it is a small shop, we had Lee’s direct attention for the entire two days.

Before, during, and after diving, Lee provided clear directions and provided a wealth of knowledge of how we should dive and our ultimate dive experience. She was so useful!

In terms of equipment provided, everything was really clean and felt new. It is also included in the price so that is really nice!

In the end, Lee (and Paul) provided a wonderful experience as we gained our advanced open water certificate. We cannot wait to return and we highly recommend!!!

My daughter has just completed the PADI open water diver course with Lee (Helene) who was excellent at carefully explaining everything. Felt totally safe at all times. We then completed a wreck dive at the P31 with Paul which was fantastic, swimming through the boat and spotting a moray eel. Final dive was at Santa Maria caves on Comino where we swam through many different caves and amongst a shoal of bream. Speed boat ride back and the end to a fabulous day. Definitely recommended! 😊

I am an Open Water Diver and signed up for a specialty course in Perfect Buoyancy with Lee (Helene). The class was great and I learned a lot of tricks from Lee and she was able to answer all my questions. The next days I did 4 dives with Paul who showed me Paradise Bay and Ghar Lapsi. The dives were perfect, very relaxed and the environment was absolutely amazing - at all times I felt very safe with Paul. My partner completed the scuba diving course with Lee. She used to do some beginner dives before and also tried to do the open water diving course elsewhere but failed because she couldn't take the mask off and on underwater without breathing a lot of sea water. Through patient and helpful suggestions, she managed to master this skill together with others. She sends Lee a huge thank you.

We had a fantastic time scuba diving with Aqua Venture, the spot we visited was beautiful and our instructor Lee was incredibly helpful and friendly. Myself and my girlfriend that dived are complete beginners and she talked us through everything very well. Highly recommend.
