My girlfriend is really afraid of water, especially going under water, and when we booked a try dive with utina diving college i was worried if we found the right dive center to master her fear. She wanted to do it, but when we arrived she already said i should better do it alone, because she was so scarred. This all started to change gradually when we stepped into utina diving college. We were greeted by a super friendly and nice Team, consisting of Sally, Heinrich, Neil and Pixie. We explained our Situation and my girlfriends fear slowly started to decline. They were all very comforting and were instantly understanding and caring and helped my girlfriend explain her fear. It was all around a very relaxing yet at the same time professionell atmosphere. Neil making a few jokes to lighten the mood, and Sally preparing all the Gear so we could test it before the dive. I could already tell my girlfriend was feeling much more relaxed but she was stil doubtful wether she could do a dive. Then we were introduced to Heinrich. He would do the dive with us and was the best teacher we could have hoped for in our Situation. If it wasn't for him, i'm certain my girlfriend may have never tried diving again. Heinrich took the time and listened to the reasons why my girlfriend was afraid. He tested all the equipment with her and found exactly the right tone and speed in which he explained our diving preparation. When we went to the diving Site Ras il-Ħobż, my girlfriend could snorkel until she felt confident to try diving with full Gear. When we went for the dive he always had a hand on her Oxygentank and regulate her vest so she could only focus on breathing. The way in which Heinrich prepared the dive we felt was all highly professionell. And then it happened, my girlfriend managed to dive to 6 Meter and could See all the Fish and Underwaterlife. We could even spot an octopus who was hiding behind his Rock. Thank you Utina Diving College and especially Heinrich for this unforgetable and amazing experience. It was definitly the Highlight of our vacation. Greetings Philipp and Tina

Wandered across Utina on arrival in Xlendi and was immediately taken with the no fuss, friendly and welcoming attitude and atmosphere. Booked onto a dive the next day. Had no equipment which was all sorted with minimum of fuss and as I was the only one booked on, got a one-on-one guided experience with Neil, who was professional, safe and excellent at spotting octopi! Great value for money and a really fun experience. Would highly recommend.

This was probably the nicest dive center I've ever encountered. It's a really small business, but Sally and Neil are a lovely couple that make you feel very welcome straight away. Diving is done in small groups only and the excellent dive instructors really try to give you the best dive experience possible and also care for your safety with a proper buddy check. They do things properly here, and I experienced some of the best briefings ever, covering not only the planned dive trip, but also some history and local culture. A big thanks to my 3 dive instructors Neil, Pixie and Heinrich, who showed me around the underwater world of Gozo. If ever I come back to visit this island again, I'll go dive with Utina for sure. Highly recommended ! .... oh and Heinrich : I'll never forget your amazing diving style ;-)

Did 2 dives as a family (with 14 and 17 year olds), intro to scuba diving. Neil and Pixie were excellent instructors, making us all feel very safe. Thoroughly enjoyed our dives. All of the staff here are very friendly and very experienced, would recommend them highly! Lots of advice and no hard sell either. Would really love to come back and complete open water one with Utina! Seas are calm, warm and offer a lot of variey.

My daughter (17) and son (14) did the half-day 'Try Dive' course and absolutely loved it. All staff were extremely friendly and professional, instruction was clear, and the kids were made to feel confident. They went out with Pixie and, after some training in the shallow waters of the lovely harbour, they had an hour long dive around the bay where they saw plenty of sea life including an octopus and starfish. Not being in a large group (it was just our two and Pixie) made it even more special. Both returned in great spirits after their first experience of scuba diving and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Utina to any kids or adults looking to get a first taste of diving. That you Pixie and all at Utina!
