We were picked up promptly from Valletta and taken to their shop where we met our guide, Pepo, and the 2 others who were in our group. We were given a detailed briefing on certain safety aspects, as well as how to snorkel properly. We then went out in their car to the first snorkelling location, stopping off on the way to look at a historical site. Pepo told us a lot about what we were seeing as we drove past and gave us the opportunity to stop if we wanted to take any photos. It was then time to start our first snorkel. I would highly recommend snorkelling with a guide; firstly, Pepo was attached to a buoy which indicated that there were snorkelers operating within the vicinity. Anyone that has been on a speed boat before will know how hard it is to see swimmers in open water. It is not uncommon to have people who have just rented the boat for a day out in the water and are not experienced (happens everywhere, not just Malta). Having this extra bit of security really helped make the both the sessions that much more relaxing and enjoyable. Secondly, Pepo pointed out different sea life and told us what they were which was nice. Lastly, on our second snorkel we swam to this amazing cave. Unfortunately there were a few jellyfish. This did not put a damper on the swim because Pepo put himself in between us and the jelly fish and made sure we were safe at all times. read lessmarcoshekkc- TripAdvisor

Pepo is very attentive. Since I am a bit afraid of water based on past experience, he made me feel safe and gave me enough confidence to enjoy in the sea!
The water is sooooo clear and we saw a lot of interesting marine life! Pepo is very knowledgeable in answering all our questions!

He also gave us some history about Malta while traveling to a couple of the interesting locations on the island. It was a wonderful trip and if I could go back, id choose the full day option and experience this longer. read lessPeggyVW- TripAdvisor

We did a full-day snorkeling safari which included snorkeling at 2 locations where the visibility was good, and the water was relatively calm on a windy day. Pepo paid close attention to the weather and changing conditions to insure we had the best experience possible. The first location was remote and beautiful -- we were the only ones there!
We appreciated the use of wetsuits, quality snorkeling gear, pickup near our hotel, a break for lunch, and the small size of the group.

Our instructor, Pepo, picked us up at our hotel, knew the best places to go taking into account weather and sea conditions, made sure we were comfortable in our gear, and was just really accommodating all around. He also took us to a great place for lunch, that we would have missed otherwise. All three of us really enjoyed this experience and appreciated that it was in small groups (actually, it was just us in our case). We saw some interesting marine life (a small stingray, a rainbow fish, ...) and beautiful underwater scenery. Much recommended! read lessBob P.- TripAdvisor

Andrea picked us up after our Cruise ship arrived at the port and took us to St. Peters Pool for the morning snorkeling. He provided wet suits which were needed in the cool water. I used my own full face snorkel mask. We did see some fish, but in the Med you don't see as many or as big a fish as you would see in the Caribbean or Hawaii. The water was crystal clear and many people were swimming in this area and jumping off of the cliffs. We then had a nice tour of the local area and the markets and had lunch. Then we were off to the second location which was very deep. In that area there were more fish, sea urchins and also and eel that I found on the wall of the port. There were several small boats going in and out of that area taking people on tours so Andrea did a good job of keeping us safe. It was a great experience and we had a fun time. read lesslizkenny34- TripAdvisor

We wanted the opportunity to explore the island without feeling like we were constantly competing with a thousand other tourists. I am so grateful for Divers Code! The service they provide is incredible and bespoke. We booked a full day and emailed back and forth before we arrived on the type of experience we were looking for. Their communication is brilliant - extremely prompt replies if you email them! They provided a unique snorkeling experience suitable for not only my more cautious 7 year old but also my more adventurous 11 year old as well as taking us around the island pointing out some of the countries landmarks. The whole tour was amazing! Divers Code took us to locations known by locals so we weren't surrounded by lots of tourists. It was bliss! I felt like we had a private guided tour! It was worth every penny and definitely the highlight of the whole holiday. Huge thanks Pepo!!! read lessMing J.- TripAdvisor

This experience was so unique, couldn't be compared to anything else. It was in a super safe environment too so you've nothing to concentrate on other than exploring the deep blue.
We did a full day tour of Comino and the blue lagoon. We were picked up from our hotel. Giovanni gave us great insight into life on the island and recommendations for places to eat, dive and visit (as did Andrea on other occasions). We then went out on a boat for the day. We were only with 4 others which made the whole day feel very relaxed.
Both dive sites we went to were incredible. Didn't know the sea could be that colour - a luminous tourquis. The dive took us exploring caves and inlets, as did the boat trip back to the bay.
Would highly recommend these guys, they were so friendly and helpful and we had the best time on our trips! read less

We took the full day trip, being picked up from the hotel, and then shown both land and sea sights. Poor visbiakity on the first snorkel meant that Pepo was really keen to make sure we had a decent second dip, which he did as he has a great knowledge of all the sites and how they are effected by conditions. The kids enjoyed every minute and loved getting their first real taste of snorkelling. Highly recommended. read lessSchillaci R.

He was very professional and made sure I felt safe and comfortable the entire time. At the same time it was all very relaxed and a bit like having a friend take me out for the day. First we went snorkelling in front of where the Popeye Village is. This spot itself was amusing and stunning at the same time. The water visibility wasn't fantastic, but it was calm enough to get in close to the rocks and have a good look around.
We drove to another place (sorry, don't know the name), stopped for some lunch. After we drove a bit further, parked up and walked up a hill. The guide showed me this amazing spot, it was probably a cave at some stage, but now it was a beautiful spot where some people (not me) choose to jump into the water. We instead walked back down and snorkelled around. Thankfully the current wasn't too strong so we were able to do this. Snorkelling into this 'open air cave' was just amazing. It was the most beautiful spot I've even been in the water. I couldn't wipe the smile off my face.
After we snorkelled back, my guide drove me back to my hotel. I was tired, (sunburnt) but absolutely buzzing. Thank you again. Those memories will be safely stored away. read lessmichaelamcdaid- TripAdvisor

I was trying to pack too much into one week in Malta (because it's that kind of place!) and didn't contact Divers Code until the night before I wanted to go snorkelling, here was response waiting for me in the morning. I wasn't able to join the safari that had already been booked, but communication was excellent and Pepo accommodated me as a single traveller for a couple of hours in Buggiba.
Safe, professional, knowledgeable and great craic ('fun' - I'm Irish!)
The only thing I would do differently would be to prioritise a full days snorkelling safari over anything else.
