Been a while since our last blog so big apologies – my only excuse is “We have been crazy busy”

Lots of things going on so will try and bring you up to date..........

The usual summer holidaymakers came for their pleasure dives wanting to explore the beautiful waters of Malta, the fabulous wrecks we have from 14 meters down and breathtaking reefs, swimthroughs and caverns too – good to have new faces and regulars plus the crazy characters too

We also have the 2 sister Islands Comino with its Blue Lagoon and Santa Maria Caves then Gozo with the Inland Sea, Blue Hole, Coral Caves, Fesse Rock and Billinghurst Cave plus much more

Lots of people have come to do their Open Water Course after completing their theory & pool sessions back home then save the dives for the warm clear sea, Advanced Courses have kept us busy too along with Deep & Wreck Specialties......these are our favourite ones to teach and have beaten the amount of courses we taught last year along with Enriched Air – Thanks to you !

Groups of divers have visited us from the UK, Ireland, Norway, Sweden & Finland and many other places this year and had a great time – they have become friends on Facebook and sent us their photos which have been lovely to see

A group of 18 year old students arrived from Norway and were all excellent divers after only just passing their Open Water Course – some of them completed their Advanced whilst here and didn’t want to miss a great opportunity – well done to you all, a pleasure to teach you and enjoyed your company

Keswick Scouts from Cumbria came back again after enjoying their first trip last year, 12 of them completed Open Water, Advanced, Deep & Wreck Specialties and kept us all very busy – Bill Walker who organises the trip was very happy with their achievements and already talking about another group next year.... they created a great buzz around the place and missed them the next day after they had gone – they did leave behind a lovely box of shortbreads and chocolates – thanks guys!

Now as Nov starts we have 14 Candidates on the IDC all learning to become PADI Instructors – we also offer the EFR Instructor Course along with the MSDT so they can go away and teach Specialties as well as the basic Open Water, Advanced & Rescue all kicked off yesterday with their Orientation at 4pm with Alan then it’s going to be a full on 2 week course to prepare them for the Instructor Exam on 18/19th ....... watch this space for more information on their course and lets wish them well !

Finally…. a big THANK YOU to our team this year – you were great and miss you as you leave one by one as our season ends……keep in touch and take care til next season or til we meet again
