Maltaqua has over four decades of experience as a dive centre on Malta with accommodation, ensuring that you will receive professional diver education, training and a true diving adventure.
Maltaqua was founded in 1970 by Mike and Agnes Upton, both CMAS National Instructors, PADI Staff Instructors and BSAC Advanced Instructors who have both logged thousands of dives since they started diving in 1968. Both are teachers by profession so diver training has always been of particular interest to them.
In the 50 years that Maltaqua 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. We have always strived to improve the range and quality of service we offer to our clients but always maintaining a policy of Safety First. Over the years our standards of safety and service have brought us world wide recognition and acclaim.
We can arrange everything for you no matter how large or small your group may be. In addition to our Learn to dive packages, Dive and Stay offers, technical weeks, rental and gas blending services, we can also provide help with accommodation, airport transfers, car / van rental and boats. By helping you organise everything, we can help you make your visit to Malta not just a diving expedition but a holiday to remember.
Accommodation: Just a few steps from the Dive Centre is 'Sands', our own, air conditioned, studio apartments, purpose-built for divers, which has an area set aside to wash and hang your gear.
The Sands Apartments are very conveniently situated just off the main road through St Paul's Bay and about 100 metres from the Maltaqua Dive Centre. Their position just on the edge of the village means they are close to all the amenities without suffering the traffic noise of the town centre.
Gas Blending - Air, Nitrox, Trimix: We have a full gas blending station on site for Air, Nitrox and Trimix gas fills. We blend any mix you wish. We can pump to 300BAR and have the following sizes available: Steel 5L, 7L, 10L, 12L, 15L and 18L. Aluminium we have 3L, 40cf, 7l, 80cf and 12L. Twinsets are Steel 10's, 12's or 15's. We also cater for Rebreather divers wishing to bring their own units to Malta.
Dive Equipment Shop: Our dive shop is large, fully air conditioned and very well-stocked. Come prepared to choose from a wide range of famous name brands at some of the lowest prices in Europe. If you wish to purchase equipment, you can pre-order, then it's ready for you when you get here.
