My partner and I went on a weeks holiday to Malta and stayed in the Qawra resort. My partner had made contact with Dawn Diving owner Trevor beforehand and agreed prices, days, equiptment etc, all we had to do was pop into his shop on our arrival and confirm arrangements. We made our way to the ample sized shop/front of house where we were greeted by Trevor and made to feel most welcome. Trevor had our 3 days diving under consideratin and weather dependant had it all pretty much worked out-taking our diving experience into account to ensure we got the very best we could in the time we had. My partner and i had decided we would take our own kit with us, with the exception of lead and cylinders, but i noted that all the hire kit was pretty much brand new and immaculate. The diving on the first two days was lovely, professionally guided throughout, with a definate hint of humour added in for good measure! On travelling to the destination Trevor pointed out various buildings, places, and generlly explained Maltese life-the good and not so good bits!
Trevor had talked about his principle of the importance of ensuiring that he provides his divers with a "proper dive", and not just a "get wet dive" that merely gets the dive shop paid but doesnt really give the diver good value for money. Sure enough on the third day the wind was blowing pretty hefty, Trevor had been keeping a close eye on the weather via the internet, and as such he was already envisioning a "no dive day" for the safety of all involved. However, to my suprise, he bundled us all into the van and drove across the island to the potential dive site in the hope that a dive MAY be possible, alas upon seeing the water surging angrily up the rocks he immediately declared a "no dive day". Taking us down the dive point, when he already expected we wouldnt be able to dive, not to mention the money he lost by not diving that day was a very nice of him and greatly appreciated by us. All in all, would i reccomend Dawn diving? Withought a doubt!!
ps. Trevor owns the pub next door which serves ENORMOUS portions of beautifully cooked food for fantastically low prices!!!
Looking forward to going back!
Thanks you Trevor
Dawn and Sean

I would sincerely like to thank Trevor and Jane for the fantastic dives, and first class service in there dive center and also after in the bar and restaurant. Myself and my wife had a really great time with Dawn diving, i would highly recommend Trevor and his team.
My wife had no interest in diving as she has this fear of been under water, but after seeing Trevor and Jane work with other trainees, they were absolutely fantastic,my wife has decided she wants to back next year and do a try a dive with Trevor and Jane in Dawn diving.
I would once again like to say thank you both, and hope to be back diving with ye next year.

My daughter and I dive a couple of times a year and only have about 15 dives. When rough weather came up all of a sudden Trevor took care of us by deciding not to dive that day even though we had already driven to the site and he would be losing the business for that day. We decided to dive the next day and had a great experience. Everything was done professionally, but Trevor also made it fun.
