My and my friend had 10 dives at Buddies Dive Cove and it was great! The people working there were very helpful and alway in a good mood so you felt welcome as soon as you stepped into the shop. The wreck, caves and blue holes were fantastic and even after 10 dives we did not get bored of the sites they showed us. After the 5 days the shop felt like home and the instructors and dive masters were new friends... :) It made the holiday perfect!

All I can say is that it is a fantastic place and I CAN HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT :)

Have just returned from my third holiday in Malta and each time i have dived with Buddies.Martin runs a well organized dive shop which not only has a relaxed atmosphere, but also provides top quality instructors that helped me complete both my open Water and Advanced courses.I was made to feel very much at home and found that i was not the only person returning to Buddies again.This trip i had three days diving with buddies and we did some reef and wreck diving. Even though i am not very experienced, the guys made me feel relaxed and confident during my Deep Dives.I would not hesitate in recommending Buddies to anyone who is thinking of diving in Malta and i hope to return next year again. Many thanks to all the Instructors,especially Bjorn,Jordan and Tracy who helped me on the Advanced Open Water course. Thanks again guys.

First time visiting Malta and first time diving, instructor was very reassuring and competent. Staff at the centre were friendly as well as efficient, no time was wasted loading trucks or getting kit which meant it wasn't too hot by the time we got going. Very positive experience , would definitely recommend buddies for diving in Malta.

I've recently returned from a full week's diving with Buddies and my dive club; 12 dives over 6 days. Buddies organised a varied and interesting itinerary, with shore and boat dives accessing both wrecks and fantastic underwater topography. A number of us are instructors and the rest of us are experienced divers. Buddies manage us very well, despite our blunt northern ways :-) We have always found Martin and his staff professional and well organised. Jordan and Dora, who guided us through the week, were good company, made good decisions at the right time and made a good week even better. Now, sing (or sign) along...."I love you...Octopus!"

I can really recommend this divecenter. We had a great time and some good dives here. They are very professional and they make sure you see the best of Malta's wreck diving. And there's a good service and always a great atmosphere.
