If you never tried scuba diving or freediving, then the best option is to join a First Experience class! We will guide you through a 3 hour-long experience – theory and practice in the amazing Mediterranean Sea – and if you fall in love with diving, you may decide to attend a full course and take a certification recognised all around the world that will train you to be an independent diver!First ExperiencePADI Open Water Diver CourseFreediver Course
Yes! Whether purpose-sunk as an artificial reef for scuba divers, or lost as the result of an accident, wrecks are fascinating windows to the past. Each wreck dive offers a chance for discovery, potentially unlocking a mystery or spying something others have missed.
To be able to visit a wreck, you need to participate to the PADI Discover Scuba Diving experience
, then DiveBase Instructors will be able to take you to guided dives to a maximum depth of -12m, perfect to visit two of the most famous shipwrecks on the island: HMS Maori and X127, IIWW shipwrecks!
Of course! You may use contact lenses or a prescription mask.
Prescription masks are hard to find as a rental equipment and you’d risk finding one which doesn’t meet your requirements, so in this case we highly recommend investing in one of your own.
Another option is to buy prescription stickers that you can apply on the lower section of your mask, it is like wearing reading glasses.
Yes. Here in Malta we can dive all year round! According to the season, we will give you the perfect insulation system (wetsuit).

Most marine animals do not attack and have stingers for defensive reasons only. In some areas there are corals or plants which may sting if you brush up against them, specifically in the Mediterranean Sea you might encounter sea urchins, fire warms or jellyfish which may be urticant if you accidentally touch them. Your instructor will explain to you how to interact with marine life in an observatory and passive way which means you will experience some great encounters with many wonderful species. The golden rule is not to touch anything and control your buoyancy, a skill you will learn attending your courses with your DiveBase Instructor!
Of course! You can join our courses and dives experiencing one-to-one sessions with our instructors or meet new buddies on the way!
