I went diving with Buddies about a month ago and had a great day diving with Tom at Cirkewwa where we did two dives. The staff is very professional and it was a pleasure diving with them. I can highly recommend diving with Buddies!

We had completed our Open Water Courses in England only two weeks before arriving so diving with Buddies was going to be our first real dive in the ocean! My 11 year-old sister and I had a fantastic diving experience - Elka was great and made us both feel really comfortable and we saw loads of marine life. We're both... More

The instructors were fantastic in their guidance and explanations, making sure to keep it fun while ensuring our safety and comfort at all times. Group sizes were small which... More

I hadn't dived for 8 years and decided it was time to get back under the water so looked for a place with good reviews. I spoke to three different providers but chose Buddies as they seemed both professional and fun, where as the others seemed to be very impersonal. I went in and saw Martin the day I arrived... More

Initially booked introduction to diving but after amazing experience decided to book the PADI course for my daughter, all instructors are extremely professional, funny and welcoming. I would definitely recommend them to anyone who wants to start adventure with diving. Can't praise them enough :)

Went diving for 5 days with Buddies Dive Cove. Great fun in and outside of the water with the professional crew. Bonus points were given for the games during the car rides, surface intervals and safety stops, as well as for the great pizza & karaoke evening.

This is our second year with buddies and Martin certainly has an amazing team with him. Safety first (obviously) but fun is a priority. Booking is professional and easy via emai, and on arrival they are ready for you and welcoming. Our daughter is the scuba diver and I felt completely confident when she went out for the holiday with... More

Just wanted to thank you and your team for your professionalism and welcoming spirit. It is not easy traveling by yourself sometimes and you guys made all the difference. Especially to George, great bloke, safe but not in your face, reassuring esp for a guy who likes reefs in the Pacific. He made each and every dive memorable. If I... More
