I would highly recommend this place. I emailed 10 different diving schools in Malta and I am so happy I chose this one. Charlie was very helpful over email and gave me all information I needed. I was doing my open water referral course after almost a year of not practicing any skills. Conny was my diving instructor and Fred... More

Not having dived much in over a year since completing o/w, I had got very nervous. Casey's reassuring presence helped me relax & enjoy the beautiful underwater scenery. All the team at Crests are lovely & very encouraging. Feeling much more confident now & can't wait to go back.

Since my first email, Charlie answered to me really quickly and gave me all the information needed very clearly. Your system of price is great because you know how much you will pay and the materiel is good. I was alone with Connie for the first 2 dives and for the second day it was only my friend, me and...

I did 2 dives with Cresta which were arranged at short notice. These guys are very experienced and have a number of options to choose depending on conditions. Despite the poor weather we were taken to a location where the access and diving conditions were very good. Staff are friendly and relaxed but well organised. While some of the gear... More

Top class dive centre. We spent a great week diving with Cresta. They were friendly, helpful and accommodating of all our wants and needs. I would use them again in a second. Casey and Conny were fabulous and Charlie was super helpful online. You could not find a better dive centre in all of Malta or Gozo.

Visited Malta for the first time and went diving with a friend after 3 years out of the water. KC and Conny were fabulous in ever way that matters. They got us in the water and up to speed at our own pace and showed us consistently fantastic dives. They were professional, courteous, and safe. 6 days and 12 dives... More

I'm glad I went with these guys, I booked course online after doing some research and watched a few of their clips on u-tube, right in the centre of bay and a nice walk there every morning, they were good fun to be around and as a solo traveller makes it a lot easier, the course was good fun to...

After being recommended, I chose Cresta to dive with in my time in Malta, with no disappointment. They also come out as the most competitive, price wise, with no additional costs or surprises. Thanks a lot to Casey and Conny - two great guys and a pleasure to dive with

Great folks to dive with. Small groups, well matched, experienced local staff who've been working there for ages - they know the sites well, they have fun whilst they're working, everything is safe & easy. Good socialising opportunities for the solo diver.
