Kalkara Marina

Kalkara Marina is one of the main departure places of the Buddy boat. Most dive trips will start from here.

If you would like the boat to pick you up somewhere else, close to your home or a hotel – no problem. Just let us know in advance via one of our social networks or sent us an email on [email protected] and we can arrange it for you!

Example dive schedule:

Make sure that all the required equipment for you dive is with you. Securely place it on the boat and start your scuba diving adventure. Meet other fellow divers, chat and have your morning coffee

8:30: Buddy Boat Departure

Double check and prepare your scuba diving equipment, do the dive briefing and start your dive

1st dive (approximately 60 minutes)

Time for a snack, your next briefing with your instructor (or a buddy) and preparations for the next dive

Both dives are done and it’s time to remove and dry your dive gear and dismantle your diving equipment. Have some rest in the sun deck or grab some food while we’re heading back to our departure point.
