“A great place to dive”

Scuba Kings Dive Centre
Ranked #3 of 13 things to do in Marsalforn
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 12, 2013

What can I say... An amazing holiday that has been made all the better by the people involved with scuba kings. We're collected from the airport and put on a ferry to be collected at the port by Richie himself!! After a quick journey we were dropped at the guesthouse and were asked to pop in later to sort all the paperwork.

The day after was our check dive then to start our advanced open water. Nora was an amazing instructor who listened to all your worries and dealt with them calmly and professionally. 8 (5 for the course and 3 pleasure) stunning dives later we're both qualified and seriously sad to be leaving.

I couldn't ask for more in a dive centre. Tom and Sarah were very attentive and weren't afraid to be asked the odd 'stupid' question - we proved that there is one!!!! Richie is very knowledgable and is very concerned with the safety and well-being of his staff AND customers all the time. If you get the chance, use these guys all the time. I know we'll be back soon and we're already looking forward to it! Thanks from 1/3 of team uba xxxx

I came to gozo as an open water diver with 'insecurity issues'. They listened to all my concerns. Evaluated me in a test dive then put me with an instructor that knew just how to obliterate those blues. They will also put you in a group to match your skill set (small group at that)
The owner richie is an unassuming relaxed kind guy with the cutest dog.
Nora AKA marvin the martian is an amazing teacher and guide .
Tom and the beautiful Sarah (aka the mofo and daphne) amazing support and organisers.
After a week with these guys I am now an advanced open water diver and so much more confident. Don't take my word for it visit and use these guys. There is no such thing as a silly question with these guys...........well there is ONE but tom will have to tell you what it is!!!!!!!

We did our advanced open water course with Scuba Kings plus five fun dives after that. From the start it was clear that this is a dive centre with character and personality that we'd not come across before and we loved every second of it! There was no question over the professionalism and we were really impressed by the efficiency of the operation and of our guides (Nora and TC in particular)! The diving in Gozo was fantastic - our first wreck dive (P31) and Inland Sea were definite highlights. Nora and TC were brilliant instructors and guides respectively and each with a wicked sense of humour that we really enjoyed. We must also mention Tom and Kat, our tireless DMs who were fantastic to have around and helped us each out with our dodgy ears on more than one occasion. All in a brilliant experience and we will be back!! Emma and Will.

Booked the holiday and diving package with scuba kings. Right from the start we knew we had made the right choice. There was someone at the airport when we arrived to begin a hassle free transfer, the apartment was great and fantastic value and the centre is a very professional set up.

Before arriving my boyfriend and I had booked to do our Open Water Course whilst we were there. Our instructor, John Holland, was very experienced and immediately made us feel as though we were in safe hands. We even decided to continue on to do our Advanced Course straight after completing the Open Water course. The student to instructor ratio was 2:1 and we also had at least one trainee divemaster with us on every dive.

We will certainly be back to dive with Scuba Kings and would happily recommend them to anyone who wants to dive in Malta/Gozo.

From start to finish a brilliant fortnight. from Airport Pick-up to airport drop-off a great service, how it should be.
Special thanks to Nora who made our diving experience outstanding. Nothing deterred her from making your dive a wonderful adventure. Whether it was getting it wrong with kit or weights, a forgotten mask or wet suit, a faulty first stage. Bad weather or a soloist (he didn't like to stay close to his buddy underwater) who liked to scuba dive in just his skin (because, as he told us he didn't wear a suit when he took a bath?), yes they are out there. She dealt with it all Professionally, fantastic. We will be back.
Thanks to you all
Dave & Tanya
