I wanted to do my rescue diver course, and having been told it was challenging, serious and lots of fun. So I wanted to be sure I got trained properly. Having previously dived with Buddies I knew the training they offered would be excellent. And...More

Hi folks, looking at doing a week at the end of July. What thermal protection are we talking about? Normally just use a rashie and shorts but I don't think that'll cut it in Malta!

A rashie and shorts would be ok for shallow dives but you would need at least a shortie or full 3mm suit. If you'd like to book with us then please email me, we would love to have you join us.
