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!

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 :)

A rashie and shorts would be ok for shallow dives but you would need at least a shortie or full 3mm suit. If you'd like to book with us then please email me, we would love to have you join us.
