“scuba diving in Malta”
Reviewed May 18, 2013

My first visit to Malta for some scuba diving , was excellent and Buddies Dive Cove made sure I enjoyed each dive at a leisurely pace ,allowing me to take some nice photos of sea life and some wrecks.My dive guides over two days were Bjorn and Dora ,who were very helpful and professional .There are lots of hotels near Buddies making it very easy and quick to get into some scuba action and waste no time when youre in Malta for a short stay . I will definitely be back to Malta and Buddies Dive Cove this year . For good diving and friendly people at fair prices ,go to Buddies !

“So good we went twice”
Reviewed May 10, 2013

Went to Malta with a friend and decided scuba diving was the one big thing we wanted to do while there. So we looked around and found Buddies,the best price we could find in malta and top service, they make sure you know everything and are completely ready before taking you in to the open water. Well experienced staff (Dora) that have great knowledge of the best dive sites in malta!! first experience was so good that we went again 2 days later, and are now seriously considering completing the full course with them in the next year.

“Experience over profit!”
Reviewed April 29, 2013

I booked with Buddies before travelling to Malta, asking to do more sedate dives so I could get used to some new kit.

The team couldn't have been more accomodating and were helpful right from the initial email right through to after the diving was done.

I was half expecting to be doing dives within a mile or two of the centre but was amazed to be taken all over the island on some amazing dives, all planned with my requests in mind of getting plenty of photos.

Whenever I go back I would look to use Buddies again as they have been by far the best company I have dived with anywhere int he world. Best value and experience which is why anyone goes diving!
