My daughter has dived with them for 6 years. Took very ill 4 years ago when the owners looked after her as her own visiting her in hospital and cared for her on release. She achieved her 'Dive Master' quals with them. Lovely group of people with dedicated instructors several of whom have become close friends.

Thank Philip W

This dive centre is unique in that as long as they have at least one diver they will dive. Its great to have a one to one dive with a guide/instructor. Had seven dives with guide/instructor. Having said that it was November which is not the normal holiday period. In previous years I had gone in October there was about approximately thirty divers split into groups with about five guides/instructors Third year diving with St Andrews very friendly. Kit all good.

Having not been in the water for a year , I was apprehensive , but from walking in the door at St Andrews , I was put at ease . Everything was well organised and all queries and paperwork was dealt
with promptly . Visted a variety of dive sites and had a dive guide to myself . The shop has lots of dive gear and kit for sale if you need anything . Thanks for helping me get my diving mojo back.

Sometimes you have to go with your gut instinct. I trawled the internet and contacted a couple of operators in Gozo for info and prices and instinctively went with SADC - so glad I did! My emails were promptly replied to by the ever efficient, helpful and very friendly Diana. Nothing was too much trouble. All questions were answered and Diana arranged my accommodation and transfers as well as the diving. They can cater for all budgets and requirements, tell them what you are looking for and they will do their very best to sort you out.

The dive operation itself is very professionally run. There are plenty of staff to enable guides to take quite small groups and to arrange dives by level and experience so that everyone can have a safe and enjoyable dive suited to their experience. There are a variety of sites for all levels and it worked well keeping more experienced divers together to do the more challenging / deeper ones. The guides are all very friendly and very knowledgeable about the sites and marine life. You can also take a boat to harder to reach sites and night dives are offered subject to minimum numbers - definitely worth the effort, plenty to see! Gozo has some stunning dives to offer. Very glad I came and sure I will make it back some day ... just for a little longer next time :)). Thanks to all for a fabulous holiday.

My hubbie and I just returned from another excellent week's diving with St Andrews. I can't recommend them highly enough! The instructors/guides are very friendly and enthusiastic, the centre is very well organised and the dive sites are amazing. Our experience is that the groups are kept suitably small (4-6 divers plus a guide). We will be returning as soon as we can!
