We are an award-winning, family-run, PADI Dive School and Snorkeling Centre. We have a prime location in the beautiful Mellieha Bay, situated on the north coast of Malta. It is very easy to find us. We are located on the water’s edge at the brand new Blu’ Beach Complex.

First we will anchor at St. Maria Caves, which is well known for the large shoals of sea bream. These beautiful creatures are very friendly and gentle and gladly interact with snorkelers and divers.


After this we will guide you towards the shipwreck of P31, an old German minesweeper that lies at a depth of 18m. Due to the clear Maltese waters which provide superb underwater visibility the wreck can be viewed easily from the surface; if you can hold your breath long enough you may even be able to touch the deck!


Finally, we move on to the amazing Alex Cave. Here we will snorkel through a beautiful tunnel to Crystal Lagoon and even visit a small cave nearby.



This unique Malta snorkeling tour will commence at our Scuba and Snorkeling centre, where we begin by selecting and fitting your equipment. The snorkeling locations are just a 10 minute boat ride to Comino:


  • Exciting boat ride to the magical island of Comino


  • Snorkel through a beautiful tunnel to the Blue Lagoon

Fantastic dive centre. Firstly, one of the few centres in Malta with their own boat! We had some amazing boat dives... with them. Ollie was our instructor for our 6 dives and he was fantastic. He was very informative, accommodating and could have fun at the same time as being professional. The centre even offered us pick up and drop off from our hotel in Bugibba. The in-house staff were also so accommodating while we waited for our government vouchers and were very swift in refunding us the value of them when we finally received more

Amazing course, great job Seashell, thoroughly enjoyed!Keep in mind, that Seashell is not on the main road, the dive... shop is hidden behind Pick and Go mini market in the same little complex with Starbucks cafe (the only one in Mellieha). There are plenty of visual signs on the main road, look out for them!The business is run by the friendly Maltese family, who ensure the whole experience is smooth from start to finish. We received a very warm welcome and were asked to complete some paperwork, including full PADI medical form. You also settle your balance at this stage.We saw a very cozy classroom, full of beautiful diving pictures. There is a changing room with lockers, that are provided free of charge. The outdoor showers are available on site.The diving course itself is simply perfect! Very smooth, informative, the first dive of the course is brief, skills are super easy. And the open water dive is amazing! Just relax and let the PADI professionals do their job! Incredible activity! Well worth 80 euro you pay!read more

Highly recommend! Booked the Best of 3 Islands holiday package with Seashell Dive Centre. We completed 13 dives across... a number of awesome sites including reef, caves, wrecks and were extremely impressed at the skill, helpfulness and patience of all the instructors at Seashell. Such a relaxing environment made our holiday dives so pleasant and enjoyable. Thank you Seashell staff for a great week and for accommodating our site requests!!! 🙂read more

Excellent experience. I dove 6 tanks over 3 days with Seashell, which included Gozo, Comino and Cirkewwa. Sadly the... weather wasn't right for diving the Um El Faroud, or that would have been part of the trip as well.Thanks again to divemasters/instructors Phillip, Ruth, and Chris who were all excellent to dive with, and thanks to everyone in the shop (especially Yuliana) who were very helpful and friendly before and during my time on Malta.If I find myself back in Malta, I'll certainly dive with Seashell more

Best snorkeling trips on the island! Suit, mask, fins and snorkel were provided and included in the price, boat fee too, there was also a guide with us in the water, who made the whole experience complete. Their snorkeling trips are the best I’ve seen on offer. Ended up booking both and an incredible experience with tunas too
