Hotel pick up is available from most Malta hotels, however some Malta hotels have very narrow access streets, if you are staying in one such hotel and it is not possible for a coach to drive to your hotel you will be advised on a pick up point. Pick up point would only be a few minutes away on foot, usually around 200 meters away
The ferry company does not allow us to pre pay ferry tickets for children so the guests would have to buy the ferry tickets for the children themselves
In adverse weather the tour may not be able to operate, in such instances every effort will be made to move you to another date, if this is not possible you will be offered a full refund
Please ensure that there are at least 18 hours between taking this tour and flying to/from Malta.
We're very pleased to have chosen this scuba diving trip! We've never been diving before, but the company taught us the basics and we even got our first "license" with them. ...Evon Price
The team was very professional and made the experience great! I recommend them and hopefully we'll try it again!...Daniel Andrade
