My instructor was an Italian gentleman and the people on this course were myself and my partner. The location of the diving school is in Mellieha, on the coast (as you would expect) and has ample parking on the main road (driving is the way to get around on this Island). The course consisted of 3 half days, where the... More

I did my PADI Open Water Certificate with SeaShell Dive Centre. They put safety first and were willing to work around my needs in terms of timing and planning as I was bound to my work schedule ... This also gave me more motivation. I enjoyed every moment spent there, all the instructors are professional, friendly and (let's say it)... More

From the 1st day's diving to the last, I enjoyed my favourite wrecks & caverns/tunnels, with the top Seashell team, supported by the equally top shop/office team :-) A lunchtime relaxing in the Blue Lagoon after diving the Santa Maria Caves, followed by diving the wreck P-31 for example :-) Hubert, James, Publio & Alfred are just great to dive...

Our 2nd trip to Seashell Dive Centre. My partner Gillian decided to learn to dive and I can only say that I wish that I had this level of service when I learned myself. The staff are friendly and understand if you nervous. It is easy to be intimidated when learning to dive but the one to one attention Gillian... More

Second time at this location and return with SeaShell dive center. I can only give my best recommendations for SeaShell and all the staff there. Run in the best professional way there is regards to knowledge and professionalism in diving. As well always with a friendly smile and helpful attitude.

I just completed my 10 dive holiday package. As a novice diver new to SSI - I wanted to get more learning experience. Seashell helped me achieve this - Hubert's whole team and experienced instructors helped me a great deal. Definitely will be coming back soon! Also Seashell is ideally located in Melliehea Bay close and fast transit to dive... More

The package was very good value even more so as I was able... More
