We had our very first diving experience with Sea Shell and are so glad that we chose them. Special thanks to Alf who explained everything very calmly and we were no longer afraid to go diving. We will definitely come back again as we spent a wonderful time here!

Went with friends and teenage children. One of the gorup was a diver, the rest of us went snorkelling. The waters were lovely and clear, the Malta coastline spectacular. Both divers and snorkellers went to the same place so at one point we could see our friend diving beneath us! We also went to several different locations - I really... More

I booked a Comino snorkelling trip. After a warm, friendly welcome from Hubert and his staff I was kitted out with a wetsuit,fins, mask and snorkel. The three of us who would be sticking to the surface joined a group of divers for a fast RIB ride to Lantern Point on the Comino coast. After anchoring, we set off under... More

Me and my friend wanted to try Scuba Diving as it was a dream of us and because Sea Shell Diving Centre was close to our hotel, we decided to give it a try. We paid 30€ each for a try dive, it was nice to have the experience of using the equipment underwater but you don't get to see... More

Thank you for your valuable opinion. When you booked your €30.00 Try Dive a day before you were honestly informed that the Try Dive takes place just outside our dive centre in the bay. As the bay is used by swimmers and has a sandy bottom, the marine life is limited. Besides that, the Try Dive is meant to be... More

I´ve previously dived with Maltaqua but this time we wanted to try another company. This is closer to Mellieha Holliday Center, just a 10min walk along the beach. They a cheaper than Maltaqua, have good equipment and service. The best part is that they can do boat dives (extra charge) which get you out to better dive places. We also... More

Not having dived for a while, I had a refresher dive at Cirkewwa. Clear guidance from Michael and Nick helped me to get back into the mindset, and inspired me to book another dive. I went to Anchor Bay, led by Alfred. Fab dive, super to go into the cave. All the staff were friendly and professional, and I was... More

I've dived with many both good and not so good dive centers. Seashell dive center is among the best! All the way, from the quick response to my e-mails, greating on arrival (yes - they even knew my name, when I turned up!), well maintained equipment - and a box with my name on, so all equipment was the same...

Spent the last five days diving with these guys. I have been diving quite a while with many different outfits and Sea Shell is a thoroughly professional outfit. There dive leaders were all great to deal with and their price was very reasonable considering the level of service you get. I will be back diving with them again and I... More

Everything was spot on - friendly staff, timely start of the lesson, detailed explanation of the basics of diving. This was my first dive and the instructor made me feel safe and help me build up confidence! Great experience:)
