I know Lynn’s been in touch, but this is the first opportunity i have had since getting back to write. Many thanks to all the crew at Divewise, it was definitely the best week we have had in Malta in the eight years or so we’ve been coming. Special thanks to Fran, as i did most of my dives with her, didn’t get a chance to see her before i went (although could have had the opportunity to see ALL of her on our last dive?).
Don't know if its just me getting more experience or confidence, but the week was the best diving i have had and that’s a big credit to all the staff. Sunday Guys! you know who you are, never laughed as much coming back from the diving, Mori was a superstar.
Cheers Viv and Alan for making Lynn’s night she now is trawling the Map of Malta for new places to visit, she now looking forward to coming back and getting out and about. Me? well if she’s happy, I’m happy, I now have the week to complete my MSD.
Many Many thanks again see you November
I was recommended Divewise, and from the moment I contacted them it was obvious that I was getting (and going to get) good service. I emailed Divewise and received a prompt reply from Viv, she then offered to phone and answer questions. Following the phone call (from Malta) I booked my dives and waited for the holiday, finally sending an email with dives I would like to complete during the week. This again was answered promptly and with the promise of trying to do the best possible.
On arrival, I was welcomed and shown round the premises, which are large and have a full set of facilities. At all times the staff were friendly, attentive and always available to chat. They are a good team; Alan & Viv are very much aware of this and maintain a very professional outfit.
They managed to get me on all of the dives I asked for and Sarah even found me the seahorse! The briefings were thorough and diver experience and competence was accounted for in this planning. When the weather was poor the team started phoning around other areas looking for dive sites and not just looking for a compromise or giving in.
If you want a relaxed, enjoyable, friendly and professional dive centre in Malta, look no further than Divewise. The premises are excellent, the staff are fantastic and the dives are brilliant. Having dived with many centres and in many places, you cannot go far wrong with Divewise, and I would highly recommend them. I’m definitely going back.
We wanted to drop you a line to say a big 'thank you' to all of the team at DiveWise after our recent long weekend with you. Right from the moment that we walked through the door your welcome was top drawer. You made both of us feel very comfortable (even getting through the normal paperwork process) and when we left with you for the short ride to our hotel we were both impressed and impatient to get into the water with the team the next day.
The experience with you and the team just got better through the weekend. All of your team managed that sometimes difficult balance between being professional and friendly but I, especially, always felt very safe in their hands as they guided me through the Advanced OW course. Your personal approach to the admin and back room work clearly keeps the whole operation ticking over nicely and we appreciated all of the local tips and flexibility in the arrangements that you provided.
We will definitely be back to experience more of what Malta has to offer and we will be back with DiveWise to guide us through it, no question.
All the best

Having been a dive widow ever since I met my boyfriend, I finally capitulated and agreed to try diving when we went to Malta on holiday. This was on the strict understanding that we would be doing just one dive and if I really liked it, possibly 2. Thanks to Divewise, I ended up doing 10 dives and three qualifications in the space of 6 days! I can honestly say that they couldn’t have made it any easier for me and although I was passed from one instructor to another because of timetabling, at no time did I feel that I was any less a priority than anyone else. From Nev’s patience with me panicking the first time my head went under water during my Discover Scuba Diving to watching Gary’s ability to train anyone, no matter how long they were taking to grasp the skills, to Howard’s ongoing encouragement and octopus-finding skills, the tuition was fantastic. And it didn’t stop there – the banter with everyone else was superb, even though it was the end of the season and they must have been getting tired. And through it all, Viv was consistently brilliant at organising everything and giving everyone the attention they needed. And it wasn’t all for beginners either – my boyfriend had a wonderful time as well, disappearing off to wrecks and seeing some fantastic wildlife and generally staying out of my hair! Fantastic – we would utterly recommend them whether you are new to diving, on a course or an experienced diver who just fancies some pleasure dives.
Just wanted to say a huge thanks to you and Alan for squeezing me in at short notice. I've had a brilliant week and learnt so much i'm completely hooked. I hold Divewise personally responsible for the impending bankruptcy i may experience lol.
Divewise is such a great company with fun friendly professional staff that really go that extra mile in helping you attain your goals. So a special thanks to Ben and Matt for getting all my stuff ready and passing on little tips along the way. Thanks to Sarah for encouraging me to go further and putting up with my 'blonde moments'.
And of course a huge thanks to Nev for teaching me almost everything i know in the shortest time possible and giving me 'brain ache'. I was totally hooked from the first session in the pool with his relaxed friendly caring manner. Although when cracking jokes under water its rather tough to not laugh. As well as constantly checking i was ok on dives he was particularly great at making sure i knew exactly what was happening on each dive.
So thank you all at Divewise for a great job done .......I will defo be back soon.
Having now dived in 6 countries, have to compliment Divewise. Think you're doing a fantastic job, keeping it Fun, making those you teach confident and competent and keeping it safe. Keep it up!
Hopefully back soon.... And still working on the family to dive too!
Thank you for your conscientious professionalism. My daughter Leah was so nervous to begin with. Your patience and helpful attitude were much appreciated .Leah was put at ease by the professional style and calm demeanor of the instructors - we will definitely recommend you to our friends. So great to see someone in the right profession and loving it! We will definitely dive with you again. Good luck to you all in your endeavors, you deserve it.
Max and Leah
Just thought I'd send a quick mail to thank you for the wonderful experience of learning to dive. I thought the level of service from all at Divewise was brilliant and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend you to anyone that wants to dive.
Hope to be back diving soon.
I wish to thank ALL at Divewise, you ALL made me very welcome, you were accommodating and were just great. I hope you will post this testimonial, but I fear I shall say too much, but I don’t know how to praise everything that was done for me in such a small time
Thanks Alan for encouraging and making me part of the Divewise family (hope to see you in the UK at some point (DLL)) Thanks Viv for all the care, concern, medical and ensuring the admin and my holiday diving was spot on Thanks Nev for the organizing, the schedule, the dynamic ability of Divewise and the Staff and Instructors Thanks Sarah for being there – when needed you care was enormous Thanks Lucy for looking after me and organizing things for me Thanks Suze for a being a good buddy and leader and looking after me Thanks Alex for being a character Thanks Steve & Howard & Richard for the El Faroud Thanks Turu – but remember when diving on the Maori, we go out and turn LEFT, LEFT that is not to the RIGHT, LEFT - OK Thanks Gary, it was great on the last dive, experiencing the cold on the Rozi, hitting the current, that was my first solo pair dive and it made me immensely proud to achieve this. AND – how could I forget Viv Mach 2!!
All this personal attention made my diving incredible, even though I had dived before, each dive is different, but this year it was FANTASTIC. DIVEWISE is top rate, and if any one reads this, they should do all their diving with DIVEWISE – its just so incredible to be part of something that GOOD.
Thanks again to ALL
Alan, once again many thanks and I hope that it will be a 2 weeker next time.
I shall close now but my memories will linger for many months.
Kind Regards to ALL.
Thank you for giving us a fantastic experience in Malta! We will always remember the amazing dive sites and how great you all were with us!
We have learnt so much more and have been able to try new things. I'm sure we will be back some time in the future. Thank you Alan for the trips back to Mellieha. Viv my T-shirt fits great!
Hi Viv, Alan and all the instructors

John and Kim
Everyone at Divewise...
WOW, thank you for the wonderful time I had there with you and all the amazing stuff I saw. I wish I had more time to dive before I left and just wanted to say that I am running out of adjectives when describing my diving experiences. For anyone looking for a place to go diving, stop and go to Divewise. The staff here will do everything it takes to make sure you have the time of your life! Thank you again and I will send you pictures of Alaskan diving when I get home.
We had a great time. The dive center was very profeessional and helpful and the instructors were great. The made diving fun and we all felt comfortable and were able to take on new challenged with their help. We hope to come back some time.
Sorry we didn't come by to say goodbye. Thanks again for the wonderful experience you gave to our kids.
We hope to see you again next time we go to Malta.
Just wanted to thank ALL the team for making my latest visit to Malta’s underwater attractions so enjoyable. You guys and girls are great people and I look forward to seeing you all again soon
I’m finally getting back to normal after the break. I just wanted to say thanks a million for a great two weeks diving and all the fun that went with it. I can’t believe Leo had me in a swimming pool in a dry suit! I’m still getting over how amazing Raqqa point was. It was also good to have Huggins as a meeting place especially as I found myself travelling on my own. By the way, does anyone else think Howard and Danny are turning into an underwater version of last of the summer wine!
No matter how often I dive Malta with you guys, it’s always amazing and I always leave with great memories, even more friends and looking forward to returning as soon as possible.
Thanks again guys and say hi to everyone for me.
This is an excellent dive centre with top class equipment, staff and dive guides. It is very well organised so there's no waiting about. On the dive itself the guides were great - checking your air, comfort and safety - but not too much as to interfere with the dive. All in all a really good place that can cater for all levels.
I just wanted to say that you made the whole trip an extraordinary experience.
You couldn't have been kinder or more patient about my initial problems and you couldn't have looked after our son any better - so we could concentrate on learning, and even mum had a great time sitting and watching. You were great teachers, made us feel safe at all times, and were also fantastically good company. As for the squid - don't think I've seen anything as strangely beautiful ever.
We'll definitely be back at some point
Dear Alan, Viv, Nev and everyone else at Divewise,
Thank you all for a great diving experience in Malta.
I found that all the staff were very welcoming, helpful and very well trained to do a great job. You never hesitated to go the extra mile to help anyone in need of any advice or tuition. Your training was very well constructed and I found that all your staff were always happy. I look forward to meeting you all again soon and to get some more diving experiences in such a great place.
For someone who travelled on their own not knowing what to expect I was very pleasantly surprised how everyone made me feel welcome and comfortable. I would recommend this trip to anyone, whether they were on their own or in a group. Your instructors were second to none and I felt very comfortable and safe being under their supervision whilst diving. Thank you for looking after me from the minute I landed in Malta on 13th March through to my departure on the 16th March.
I wish you all the best and hope to see you again soon.
I would like to thank you all for a wonderful week of great diving! This was my second time I travelled to Malta to dive with Divewise, and it´s always a pleasure to stay with you. We were taken care of in the very best ways thanks to you and the exellent staff. We´ll surely meet again, and next summer I promise to take a tech course and go for the Stubborn and Polynesia. Thanks again. You are great!

Sorry it's taken us a while to get round to sending you a Thank You message but we are now back at work and once again firmly in the Rat Race...at least we have some very good memories from our holiday in Malta and the diving we did with Divewise.
The dives we did were all superb and the Instructors and Guides were all excellent, we did 14 dives with you and we were truly spoilt for choice in terms of what to do and see. As a pair of avid "wreckies" we found the dives on the Maori, P29, Rozi, Scot Craig, Imperial Eagle, Beaufighter and the Faroud to be everything we hoped for and more. Given that there were sites we didn't visit at least we have a good excuse to come back again :-)
As we said every one of the Divewise Instructors and Guides we dived under the supervision of were great although a special mention must go to Darryl and Aaron whose dive briefings were among the best we've heard. Nothing was left to chance and everyone knew exactly what was being said and expected of them. We felt we were very much in safe hands with these guys. Also we have to say that you personally made us feel very welcome and you accommodated every request we made, at the same time doing exactly the same for every customer we saw you deal with. We don't know how you do it but clearly you've got your finger on the pulse of every customer who walks through your doors.
Thanks again for some great diving which helped make for us trip to Malta an excellent experience, we look forward to seeing you again in the future. We'll post an entry about Divewise on Trip Advisor as well.
All the very best,
Jock & Karen McGORRY
