Here are a few quotes from our customers

Have a look here below at why we should be your trusted Diving Centre in Malta – our clients and friends speak for us:


"I recently had a fantastic week of diving in Malta with Aquatica Dive Centre. From the very beginning Daryl was extremely quick and helpful in offering me a package that suited all of my requirements, together with organising airport transfers and accomodation, including being picked up every morning for the dives themselves. Having enquired with several dive companies, Aquatica returned back to me most efficiently and with the most competitive price. The staff were extremely helpful and knowledgeable with all aspects, and being an experienced diver I was offered the freedom to enjoy my dives at my own pace, whilst still having an excellent diving guide, Jon. I was made to feel like family whilst over there, and was often made welcome for a few drinks or meals out after the dives themselves. Would like to wish Camilla the best of luck with her IDC course, I am sure she will make a fantastic instructor. I would definately reccommend Aquatica Dive Centre to anyone looking to dive in Malta"

"I recently returned from Malta, and from a wonderful scuba diving experience with Daryl and his team at Aquatica. Daryl was exrtremely quick and efficient in offering me the experience I wanted, not what he wanted and from the first time I walked into the shop, the whole team become my second family during my stay. My intention was to progress from PADI Open water diver to Advanced Open water diver, and to take in some wrecks along the way, and I achieved this with the help of the whole team at Aqualtica. They were all friendly, kind and totally professional at all times. I cannot reccomend Aquatica enough and I only hope that I have the time to go back again soon to dive again with these guys. Thank you so much for a wonderful experience I wont forget"

Martyn Dias - St.Albans, UK.


"Thanks again for the dive! It was a very good experience that I will never forget! Also I will recormend your diving shop to our guests! For sure we will see us again for the PADI-course"! ;)

Jonas - Germany


"Hi... This is a message for Daryl…

I was in Malta a couple of weeks ago with another Spanish friend called Juan and we went to the wreck dive with Darryl.

Anyways, just wanted to say thanks for a great experience, we both had a brilliant time and it was a pleasure meeting you. Next time either of us returns to Malta we’ll be sure to give you a call.

Thanks a lot, Cristina"



"Reisebericht Tauchgaenge vor Malta ( 03.Nov. – 11.Nov.2008 ) Es war ein faszinierendes Erlebnis im MIttelmeer zu tauchen. Kristallklares Wasser, Farbe BLAU, Sicht ca. 50 Meter, Wassertemperatur 23 Grad, Luft ca. 20 Grad, keine Gezeiten und keine Strömungen, gigantische Unterwasserflora, Fische in Massen ( die genau so neugierig waren wie ich ), Oktopuss ( e ) ca. 1 Meter gross und dann die Wracks ! Unbeschreiblich !

Mein Favorit, Tug Boat Rozi, liegt in ca. 35 Metern Tiefe. Ich habe sie das erste mal aus 10 Metern Tiefe in voller Pracht gesehen. Ehrlich, ich hatte vor Freude eine Gaensehaut unter Wasser. Es sind schoene Unterwasserfotos von der Rozi im Netz. Adresse folgt unten.

Neben den zahlreichen Wracks haben wir auch Felsen und Höhlentauchgaenge durchgfuehrt. Ein Ausflug nach Gozo ( der Schwesterinsel Maltas ) zum Blue Hole ( eine von der Natur geschaffene Felsformation ) und The Chimney waren einfach fantastische Erlebnisse. Vom Inland Sea aus sind wir durch eine Felsenoeffnung ins offene Meer getaucht. Das Blau ist unbeschreiblich. Fast alle Tauchplaetze sind bequem von Land aus erreichbar.

Daryl ( der Instructor, ein einheimischer Tauchfuehrer ) kennt sich natuerlich bestens aus. Er hat die komplette Organisation uebernommen und bestens durchgefuehrt, von der Hotelbuchung ( mit Internetanschluss ) – Airporttransfer – bis zur Tauchgangsplanung und Durchfuehrung. Also Tauchgaenge vor Malta : supersahnegeil !! Hier die Adressen im Netz von hier aus Wrecks anklicken und dann Tug Boat Rozi Gruesse aus Deutschland - Willi"

" Tak Daryl og Aquatica for et fantastisk sæt dyk endnu engang!

Hver gang insisterer jeg på det ikke kan blive bedre, og så lykkes det alligevel - for 8 gang i træk - at give mig de bedste dykkeroplevelser i mands minde! Huler, vrag, fisk og smukt blåt vand: Hvad mere kan man ønske sig.

Jeg kommer tilbage næste år, og jeg vil aldrig bruge et andet dykkercenter!

"Hi Daryl!

Vielen Dank nochmals für die wunderschönen 2 Tage / 4 Tauchgänge auf Malta. Es war auf jeden Fall die richtige Entscheidung mit Aquatica zu tauchen. Daryl ist ein netter,ruhiger Guide der die Tauchgänge an unser Können angepasst hat und uns die Unterwasserwelt von Malta gezeigt hat.

Am Besten hat uns die Höhle in der Anker-Bucht gefallen, war unglaublich aufregend und schön. Super waren auch die beiden Tauchgänge in Cirkewwa. Wir können das Team von Aquatica nur jedem weiterempfehlen.

Grüsse aus Österreich / Tirol Maria + Mathias"

"Just back from Malta and would like to thank Daryl from Aquatica, for 4 great dives. The first 2 were wreck dives off Manoel Island and Valletta, with the highlight being an encounter with an octopus!

The other 2 dives were off Gozo:- the first was the Blue Hole, where we dived up through a natural chimney - fantastic! The second was an inland lake wuth a tunnel leading out to the sea.

The Gozo waters are rich in sealife and we saw many different species including barracuda, flying gurnard and sea worms. All in all, a great experience and would not hesitate in recommending, plus they’re one of the cheapest!"

Duncan Caldow


"Grazie per le belle immersioni che ci hai fatto fare, per l’attenzione con cui hai scelto i posti adatti alle nostre capacità e per tutte le spiegazioni che ci hai dato con simpatia,pazienza e professionalità.

Ottimo il servizio di prelievo/ritorno al nostro hotel ed ottimi anche i consigli extra dive.

Speriamo di tornare a Malta a fare qualche altra bella immersione, magari in un periodo in cui l’acqua è un pò più calda (soprattutto per me,Anto) !!!!!

Ciao Antonella & Sandro (Vinovo (TO) )"

"In June my two boys 10 and 12 years old and I went to Malta from Sweden. We had prebooked a Junior Open Water at Aquatica.

My kids had a very intresting and hard working week at the divecenter, and after this week we left Malta with two smiling new licensed diver.

The education was very systematic and caerful in every single moment. I felt 100 % secure to leave my kids in the water with the swedish talking instructor, and sometimes I even enjoyed them in the water to refresh myself.

After a couple of weeks we did some diving home in the swedish west cost, and yes my kids can scubadive:) Martin Nilsson proud daddy to Johan and Adam."

I had 5 wonderful days diving with you!!.... I was lucky to pick you as my guide and you truly showed me the underwater realms of Malta and Gozo.

I would like to thank you for the tips and for arranging all the dives so efficiently!

Hope one day I’ll see the emerald green waters of Malta again. Best Anna, London"

"Just wanted to drop a quick note and say thanks to Daryl for our trip out on Saturday 31 May.

Our first dive was a great experience enhanced by the great work of Daryl. Your paitence with me (Sally) was great and I really appreciated it!!

We’ve attached a pick of you, Nick and Pedro.

Thanks again for all your help and paitence, Sally Greer and Nick Burfield"

"Merci pour ces magnifiques plongées et votre accueil !

Plonger à Malte fut une expérience extraordinaire grâce au sérieux, à la rigueur et au professionnalisme d’Aquatica.

Daryl a une connaissance inégalable de l’archipel Maltais et de ses meilleurs sites de plongée. Je reviendrai sans hésitation."


Thomas Ryard


"Malta is a diving destination I have returned to again and again over the years. It was in Malta that I first experienced scuba diving 10 years, 250 dives, a divemaster qualification and many, many trips ago.

Without doubt it is my Mediterranean dive destination of choice due to its accessibility, price and attitude of the locals towards us Brits, always a positive experience. When I’m there, my hosts (rather than simply dive guides) are Daryl and Chris at Aquatica, very friendly, helpful and flexible in their approach to individual customers - 5 stars!

Stephen Shurford


"This was my first experience diving with Aquatica, but certainly not my last. I found Daryl of Aquatica to be totally professional, yet above all friendly and so easy to get along with (almost as important as the diving itself).

His knowledge and orientation of the sea life, and dive sites were excellent. The Dive sites he took me on were breathtaking, and he seemed to cannily know the best times to dive them to see the best marine life. As a newly qualified diver, he also built my confidence and expanded my experience in a patient manner. But all levels of diver would benefit from Aquatica’s knowledge.

And of course Malta itself, has so many AMAZING dives, you will never fit them in during a week. Would I recommend Aquatica to my local dive club and friends? Without hesitation. Real BLAST diving with them. Thanks guys!"

Bryan Matthews


"Aquatic are a good bunch of people! They delivered what they promised, explained what was happening and answered any questions clearly.

They know what to do both above and under water !"



"It was an amazing diving experience to be given the opportunity to experience the sea from this point of view. You gave us a memory that we won’t forget, we found the manner in which you taught us was simple and easy to understand, and your endless patience helped calm our nerves.

We will definitely be planning another holiday, this time longer, to meet up with you and go see the other sea life in and around Malta. It was also nice to see that we were able to buy the goggels we wanted from your shop at a great rate."

Victoria & Vern


"Dopo aver avuto il piacere di scoprire con te I migliori punti di immersione sulla tua isola, desidero ringraziarti per la preziosa assistenza e guida ricevuta.

E’ stato per me molto interessante scoprire Malta e, di sicuro, farò il possibile per ritornarci e vedere cose nuove: la prossima volta, infatti, mi dovrai portare a vedere anche I bombardieri! Arrivederci e ancora grazie."

"Hi, we are two young tourists from Romania. We had a 7 days holiday in Malta in August 2007. The main purpose of our trip was to gain more experience in diving. After spending a couple of weeks on the internet searching for interesting locations we concluded that Malta was our best choice. It has warm and clear waters, abundant marine life, great diving sites, suited for every level of experience , starting from children and up to wreck or cave divers, but most important well equipped diving centers and very experienced instructors.

We found a lot of dive centers from Malta searching the web but we were impressed by Aquatica’s offer and the professionalism of it’s web site. While all the other sites replied our questions with an automatically general offer, Daryl presented us in advance with clear and direct informations about the course and prices, personalized to our needs. In the matter of fact i believe that it’s main quality is the ability to transform a commercial client-owner relation into a warm, relaxing , personal experience , between friends. And that is most important. Instead of choosing a big dive-center, near the hotel, that has great publicity on the web, we went with Daryl, because we knew from the first moment that we can trust him.

During the courses we had some difficulties with my girlfriend which had very little experience in diving but Daryl was very patient and helped her overcome the problem. Another situation that we witnessed during the courses was when Daryl had to dive with two English girls, 12 and 14 years old i believe, during some difficult weather conditions (not extreme :) ). He helped them calm and build confidence in themselves. I don’t want to spoil the pleasant surprises, that you will have during the courses with Daryl, with more examples, i just want to say that next year i will choose Daryl for the Advance Open Water courses without hesitation, and when we will have a kid that wants to dive i will trust Daryl to help him better that i will trust myself.

Once again, thank you Daryl for a superb experience in Malta !"

Sergiu & Claudia


"Daryl vielen Dank für die vier supertollen Tauchgänge! Habe mich als Anfängerin optimal betreut gefühlt und total viel gelernt! Danke für die kompetente Führung und Einweisung!

Mein Sohn (11 Jahre) hat bei Aquatica seinen OWD- Junior gemacht. Er war begeistert, nette Leute, kompetente, geduldige, flexible Tauchlehrer.

Wollte den restlichen Sommer bei Daryl bleiben und mit ihm auf Malta tauchen. Kann ich nur weiterempfehlen! Wir werden auch weitermachen. Viel Erfolg und tolle Tauchgänge wünscht Euch Michael und Christian."



"Quite difficult task you gave me, I can only say that picked your dive centre because your initial respond to my request was in very friendly manner and your prices were almost the same as others.

On my arrival, on our first meeting in the dive shop you show me a compressor area that was very clean, I saw tanks in very good condition, plus at that point few people were in the shop and you spoken with them confirming their diving time. All those factors even more convinced me that a choice was made the right one.

During my stay you never been late for picking me up from the hotel, that was brilliant. And actual dives, was fantastic, very good chosen spots for dives, very good timing, when no “divers-aquarium” in the water. Having you, very experienced diver, as a buddy and an instructor made my time under water fantastic pleasure. With you I met nice people, and as I said, everything was in fantastic friendly manner. Keep that!

Thanks a lot for making my Maltese holiday pleasant. If at other time I’ll come to Malta for diving your centre will be the first in the priority list."

"I did my PADI Advance course at Aquatica in St. Pauls Bay, Malta. There was only a few hours in the classroom while most of the time was spent diving. This is a wonderful place to dive as some of the sites are spectacular, the water is not too cold and the cost of the course is good too.

The instructor (Daryl) is very laid back and easy going so it makes the whole course more enjoyable.

If you are going make sure to take a dive at the Cave beside the Popeye vilage. Excelent"

John Wexford (Ireland)


"It is rare that I will ever sit down and write a testimonial however having just seen my 12 year old pass his Padi diving course with Daryl and had the privilege of diving with them both I felt the need to say thank you.

I had previously passed my certificate sometime ago and Daryl was patient and attentive with both my son and I, his manner is excellent and the attention to detail and knowledge of the locality is clearly second to none. This was confirmed when speaking to other divers. Thank you and we will see you again soon as I want to see that plane!!!"

Malcolm (London)


"I would like to take this opportunity to thank Daryl and all at AquaticaDives for a wonderful diving experience. This family run business proved to be able to supply an excellent level of personalised service that many of the larger dive schools fail to be able to deliver.

Daryl’s experience made completing my Open Water certification not only enjoyable but also relatively easy. My wife was also diving and despite already being qualified was invited along on my dives and found them to be excellent dives.

Aquatica is a true example of a school that provides a quality of service and safety that we wish all dive schools would have."

Justin (Kent)


"I dived with Aquatica Dives in April 2006, and choosing this dive shop was definitely the right choice.

The dives I did were without a doubt the best I’ve ever done in my life and having dived Egypt, Greece, Denmark, Sweden and now also Malta, that is saying a lot. Though many dive agencies will take their customers diving on the exact same dives that Aquatica took me, I doubt anybody else will be able to provide the same level of excellence and quality within these dives. The diving was done in such a relaxing pace with a perfect contact to each customer diving with them, ensuring that everyone had the best possible diving experience.

The dive guide, Daryl, was without a doubt the finest diver I’ve ever met, and had a massive experience and knowledge ensuring that every bit of rock, and sea grass was explored in order to show just how much life the seas of Malta had to offer.

I will definitely use again, thank you Aquatica Dives!"
