Utina is a rather small diving center on the Island, but they have great instructors. The advantage of such a smaller diving center is that the groups are mostly small and that you don't have to wait in a long queu to wash your diving gear. Our diving instructors Brendan and Doris are not only very good and knowledgeable divers... More

This is our third visit to this dive center, it's still nice. Small diving center, but a welcome or feel like home, we did our technical diving training with Harald, and it was perfect, as usual. We can only recommend this dive center which is based on hospitality and friendship. Thank you to all the team for these wonderful 2... More

Prices are alot higher than other centers and it has got nothing to do with service, because even their equipment rental costs almost twice as other places. Moreover I found the instructor I was diving with, Brandon, to be rather full of himself, overconfident about everything. After a while it started to grate on me. Overall was not impressed at...

OK, the prices are higher as in some other divecenters but we were on gozo for the 3rd time and always at different centers and we never experienced such a friendly and professional service. Especially Brandon as our guide fulfilled all our expectations. Perfect selection of the divesites depending on the weather and sea conditions. Thoughtfulness to the needs and... More

Three of us wanted to try scuba for the first time, and this was a great place to try it. We had two instructors for the three of us, so we all felt in safe hands. Clear instructions and demonstrations meant everybody was at ease, and we saw lots of fish! Thanks for starting our scuba journey with us!

I have dived all over the world and I can truly say that this is a top diving operation. Why do I say this? 1. The staff are very very friendly, knowledgable and helpful, 2. It one of the smallest diving schools so it is really personal, 3. The equipment is excellent - 12 and 15l steel tanks and good... More

Back again (5th time) to Utina Diving College, Xlendi, Gozo. This year I was fortunate enough to get time off work to take my Dive Master course. Only had 4 weeks to complete all the necessary requirements, but managed it with fantastic support from Neil, Sally, Rob, Brandon & Doris. It was demanding and challenging but also a very enjoyable... More

I was very disappointed with my diving experience. I came in to utina on my holiday to Gozo and asked specifically about going diving at the blue hole. I was told that usually they don't take people out there on the first dive with them but if I booked 2 dives for the next day it was definitely possible for... More

I did a cavern diving specialty course with Utina in May. The instructor was very experienced, knowledgable, friendly and relaxed. He made sure I had all the knowledge and skills to enter caves. The dives we did were fun and save. Although I brought my own equipment, I used some of Utina's and everything was in very good shape. The... More
