The minimum age for Diving Courses is 10 but all divers under the age of 18 must have written consent from a parent or legal guardian. All divers are required to have a medical certificate of Fitness to Dive, issued and signed by a doctor. We can make all the necessary arrangements for students' fitness examinations.

We work with one of the first diving schools founded in Malta. In the 40 years of the school’s history it has been one of Europe's leading dive bases. It has serviced tens of thousands of clients and trained thousands of divers and hundreds of highly skilled instructors.

PADI Junior Open Water

The PADI Junior Open Water certificate Course is the exact same course as the PADI Open Water Course with the only difference being that the diving depth restriction is that of 12 metres.

Students then graduate to open sea dives which take place all around Malta and her sister islands. Back in the classroom, students learn about diving equipment, planning for safe diving, vision and communication underwater, helping their buddy, etc. These informal lessons are aided by audio-visual presentations.

  • 4 open water dives
  • 5 dive theory lessons
  • Depth restriction of 12 metres
