Malta - Introduction To Scuba Diving
August 17, 2014
Great Experience! Well organized. Met us at the designated pick up spot 50m from the ship. Hopped in the dive shop van and got a nice little scenic tour of Valetta. SCUBA instructions given were concise and easy to understand (given in English with pictures). Equipment provided was good too. Safety was a top concern. Instructors made sure all were comfortable with the gear prior to exploring underwatera and were very diligent. My kids (teens, 1st time diving) loved it!

Great opportunity to try something new. So glad we did not miss out on the chance to try this. Guides were knowledgable, patient, attentive, and very helpful and understanding. Best excursion I have ever done! While the guides took their jobs very seriously and professionally, we also had a lot of fun with them especially Peter and Tatiana. Would recommend to everyone!

Transportation to the Suba site also became a little tour by car through the city of Malta. The staff was incredibly accommodating.
