“Great lesson but could have had better sightings”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2014

Went for the introductory course where we dived only 4m deep. The instructor was clear and firm in his instructions - British guy called Sean. Very good.

Wish there could have been prettier fishes to see though... til next time when we go deeper!

“First time diving - great experience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 July 2014

I took the Discover Diving Experience (65 euros) and went diving for the first time ever with Starfish.

It was a good time - spent some time in the pool, understanding how it all works, and then went on a dive with an instructor in about 25-30 feet or so deep water. Swam through some small schools of fish, saw a couple of starfish, and some cool tropical fish.

Mikhail was excellent in communicating via email prior to arrival and Kadri was my instructor. She was very excited and energetic and I felt like I was in good hands the entire time. She's very on point and knows what she's doing - completely trusted going down deep underwater my first time with her.

I would definitely go again with them.

Also, their office is located at the Radisson Blu Hotel in Malta - which is about a 12 euro taxi ride from St Julian's where i was staying. After I went for a dive, I actually spent a couple of hours hanging out at the pool at the Radisson Blu - just a tip!

“Amazing Dive School”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 June 2014

Visited Malta for 1 week, decided to spend it doing my Open Water Dive Certification. Was very Impressed by Starfish. Had tons of fun, got to see a different side to Malta, learned a ton of history you wouldn't get to see from the surface. Knowledgeable instructors, my instructor Sean has set 3 world records. Great place to learn the science of diving.
