Learn to Dive

Malta is an ideal location in which to learn to dive. There are no tides, rarely any currents and exceptional visibility underwater. At Paradise Diving school on the north of the island we have very own private beach and lagoon, which make ideal training conditions for beginners.

We accept children from 10 years up to try diving or take a PADI training course. They will receive a junior version of the qualification but this converts to adult status without further action on their 15th birthday. Our training facilities include a sheltered bay right in front of the dive centre, 3 outdoor pools, 1 indoor pool and a classroom all onsite. Our award winning instructors have the patience and skill to ensure you succeed.
