Aquarrigo has been established for over 20 years and is family run by locals who know the Maltese coast inside out. Situated in the heart of St Julian's right by the sea edge

Edward Arrigo the founder of the club and one of Malta's pioneers of diving, represented our country in spearfishing competitions in the 50's and 60s. Today he is still showing his passion for the sea and enjoys sharing his experiences with others. With over 40,000 dives under his belt, he has quite a few stories to share.

Divers or non divers are always welcome at the club for a chat and coffee and hopefully a dive to remember.

Wishing you all calm seas!

Took a few dives with Aquarrigo and want to express how tremendously satisfied I was with their service.

I'm a PADI master diver and have dived Australia, Mexico and Thailand, but hadn't dived for 11 years. Went today and it was excellent. Organised, professional and experienced yet relaxed and fun. I would thoroughly recommend.
