Most people know that PADI Courses in Malta will vary from one dive centre to another. The Professional Association of Diving Instructors (PADI), set the guidelines for each program. They suggest a minimum number of dives and a minimum amount of instructor to student contact time. But here at NDS Malta we are not about meeting minimum standards. Our aim is to make sure that every PADI Diving Course completed with us exceeds your expectations.

Everyone has an idea of what scuba diving is, most people know what is involved in a scuba diving course. But what most people don’t think about is why or how a business does what it does.

PADI Scuba Diving Courses in Malta with a difference

NDS Malta is different. If you want a course where your instructor has lots of students in the water at the same time, look elsewhere. However, if you are looking for somewhere to complete your next PADI Course in Malta that has small ratios, a small highly skilled team in an amazing location, then you are looking for NDS Malta.

We offer lots of dive courses in Malta. Yes, we go to Gozo and Comino, but we are all about Malta because let’s face it, if you are staying on Gozo, you would be better off finding a local centre to dive with over there. Furthermore, we will even help link you up with one.

PADI Courses for the whole family

PADI scuba diving courses are not just for adults. As such, we have scuba courses for the family to enjoy together while on holiday in Malta. There is nothing better than finding an activity that the whole family can take part in! Check out the Kids Diving section for more info about our Children’s Scuba Diving experiences and courses.

Whatever you are looking for, we can help. If you are not sure what you are looking for, just ask.
