“Another fab dive holiday with Divewise and Techwise”
Reviewed 29 May 2014

This is our third time diving with Divewise Malta. This time we returned as a team of 7 to dive some of the deeper wrecks. We had some excellent dives on the Stubborn, Southwold, Le Polynesien and the Inland sea (never get tired of that site). Thank you to Alan, Howard and Viv for all the help and organising. Thank you to Anne and Steve W. for diving with us.

Great people. Great service. Great diving.

“Another Great Trip!”
Reviewed 27 May 2014 via mobile

This is the third diving trip with Divewise and a great trip it was too. The Faroud is always a great dive and this was no exception. It was also really nice diving the P31 off Comino. A really nice boat with some fantastic penetration opportunities. What was also good about P31 was that being a boat dive you don't waste precious air on the swim to and from.

Thank you to Anne for looking after us and particularly to Viv who is ruthlessly efficient at organising everything and couldn't be more helpful. It's always a pleasure to return.

Divewise also has an agreement with a local bar called Huggins which gives you a 25% discount off food and drinks on production of a discount card and this saves you a surprising amount during your stay which helps pay for more diving (or beer).

“An Excellent Dive Centre - Can't wait to go back”
Reviewed 27 May 2014

Viv, Alan and all the Staff at Divewise were absolutely fantastic. This is a very well run operation and they will work hard to make sure you have a safe and enjoyable experience.

They cater for all types of diving. I saw people who were diving for the first time to people who were Tech diving down to 100+ meters.

I am already planning my next trip and hope to get back as soon as I can.

“Already planning my return!”
Reviewed 25 May 2014

This was my second holiday diving with Divewise and I can't recommend them highly enough. Not only are the team highly skilled in both recreational and technical diving, they are also incredibly enthusiastic and generally a lot of fun to be around. If you are travelling with lots of kit, the hotel pick-up and drop-off is a big advantage (all kit is also available to rent). Dive packages are well priced and the reasonable rates may justify the odd purchase from the dive shop. Diving is, as always, weather dependant, but if you are travelling as a group, dive locations can be quite flexible, which is a real bonus. I would recommend the Karwella (Gozo), P29 and Imperial Eagle/Jesus statue for recreational divers (the X127 is a rather dull dive and best left to when nothing else is available).

The dive centre is well located, with plenty of room for preparing and washing gear. The house reef is available for training and multiple vans transport divers to sites throughout Malta and Gozo. This is also a nitrox only centre, so there is the benefit of extended bottom times on all dives. Really can't get back soon enough!

“Advanced and Nitrox; Excellent diving with Friendly, Professional staff”
Reviewed 23 May 2014

Greatly recommended by our Dive Centre in the UK; our first contact was with Viv who couldn’t have been more friendly and willing to answer all questions put forward.
Once arriving at the Centre we were quite impressed by the whole outfit; the equipment was of a very high standard and the instructors were very accommodating in getting us all suited and booted.
The diving itself was superb; we were instructed by Bella who led our dives throughout the courses - friendly, good humoured and ever patient she really made our dive experience an amazing one.
Overall great diving with fantastic people, already looking to book our next holiday to get back there!
