Scuba School and Diving Centre in Mellieha Bay, Malta

We are an award-winning, family-run, PADI dive centre/school, situated on Maltas North-East coast in the Blu Beach Complex in the gorgeous Mellieha Bay. We were founded in 2004 and this year celebrate 20 successful years as Malta's Premier dive centre. We look forward to continuing to provide you with comprehensive diving services, excellent customer service and unforgettable dive experiences. Our recently renovated premises is right on Maltas longest sandy beach, located mere minutes from some of the most popular Maltese dive sites. We also have a wide range of restaurants and cafes right on our doorstep for families and friends to enjoy whilst the divers are away, and for the après dive experience!

Here at Seashell Dive Centre our passion for your enjoyment and subsequent satisfaction is outweighed only by our devotion to your safety and wellbeing. While we are incredibly proud of our local Maltese diving sites, we believe that everyone should also have the opportunity to additionally experience the finest sites Gozo and Comino islands have to offer. To this end, we possess two dedicated custom-built dive boats and a fleet of vehicles. This includes our custom-built hard hull boat, which carries up to 34 divers. Manufactured in 2018, this fast and spacious boat features the most comfortable layout, plenty of shade, toilet onboard and a lift for divers, ensuring the experience is comfortable, convenient and totally stress-free. This state of the art boat can be chartered for private scuba diving trips and freediving/snorkelling sessions.

We also own an 8,5 m rigid hull inflatable RIB boat that operates on a flexible schedule and caters for smaller groups wishing to discover Malta’s hidden gems and visit the more remote sites on the Islands. Henceforth, we are entirely independent while transporting groups of any size, and as a result have a high level of flexibility on which site we carefully select to visit, dependent on weather conditions and special client requests.

Furthermore, we are the only dive centre offering our “Best of the Three Islands” package deal which allows you to experience a selection of the very best the Maltese Islands have to offer. The meeting times for our trips vary depending upon dive sites being visited but, in general, Malta and Comino trips meet at 08:00 and are away for two dives, with up to a one-hour surface interval between dives. You should expect to return from many of the dive sites by about 13:30 or by 15:00-16:00 for our day trips to Gozo.

We commence recreational PADI and SSI scuba courses daily, ranging from complete beginner to professional levels. As well as introducing beginners to life below our shorelines, we also offer a variety of all-inclusive package deals and guided diving tours customisable to your individual needs. Divers are grouped into teams according to qualification level, confidence, experience and dive preferences; our Dive Guides are then allocated appropriately. We also pride ourselves on providing professional and exciting courses, ensuring that there is never more than 4 students in a group, allowing divers to make the most of their instructors and the courses offered.

We believe that while everyone comes to us as a guest, they leave us as a friend. As such we are very accommodating of special requests and understand that everyone may have different ideas, requirements, and indeed needs, which we will do our utmost to meet. Simply get in touch with our helpful and professional management staff and they will assist you with anything you might need. This includes designing your personal package and assisting with boat charters, airport transfer, accommodation and anything we can do, to make sure your holiday is a memorable one.

Our highest priority and mission statement is to produce highly trained, safe and competent scuba divers, and to make your diving in Malta as easy and enjoyable as possible. The Dive Centre is normally open all year round; we work seven days a week April to October and five days a week the rest of the year. We look forward to meeting you soon!
