Diving with Seashell

Come and join the Seashell family to dive some of the most beautiful dive sites in the world! With crystal clear waters and our professional and friendly team, we have everything you need to have an amazing diving holiday!

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.
If I find myself back in Malta, I’ll certainly dive with Seashell again

Got my OWD certificate here. Great place and nice people. In winter shore dives, in summer nice boats. Will definitely come back again. 🙂

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
