Our Story

Buddies Dive Cove is Malta’s friendliest dive centre. A family run PADI 5 Star Career Development Centre & retailer centrally located in Bugibba. Only 5 minutes walk from Qawra & St Pauls Bay on the northern coast of Malta, with the islands of Gozo and Comino just minutes away by boat. Together with our team of highly qualified and experienced PADI Instructors, we pride ourselves in giving you our full personal attention to ensure that your scuba diving Malta experience is a total success.

Whether you are interested in a Discover Scuba Diving session, joining one of our PADI Open Water Diver courses, Divemaster Internships or becoming a PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor at one of our IDCs, you are assured that we will meet your expectations while maintaining the highest possible standards of diver safety and education.

If you are looking for guided diving in the jewel of the Mediterranean during your vacation in Malta, we run daily boat and shore dives around the three islands. While we are taking care of all the logistics, you can go ahead and enjoy wrecks, caverns, reefs and the spectacular underwater landscape that the Maltese islands are famous for. For the more Tec minded, we offer PADI TecRec diver training and Nitrox / Trimix facilities. We also offer facilities for rebreather divers.
