Buddy Boat



Our mission:

Buddy Boat is run by divers for divers providing the best travel time to the dive site.

From our experience, we understand that it is difficult to find time for quality diving while balancing work, family and social activities. That is why we have created this project, the essence of which is the convenient transportation of divers to the heritage dive sites of Malta.

Our services:

Daily Diving: Standard routes, which will be repeated every week from March to November. Each diver can secure one of 6 available spots.

Charters: You can rent our boat and plan your own route for a personalized diving experience. The price varies depending on Charter duration, Skipper/no skipper, Trip distance. 
It can be several tipe of charter:
  • One-day or Multi-day Charter in Malta, Comino, and Gozo.
  • Multi-day Charter from Malta to Lampedusa.
  • Multi-day Charter from Malta to Sicily.

Diving trips: Similar to charters, but we offer specially prepared recommended routes for an enhanced diving journey.  Trips have a predefined schedule that can’t always be changed. Trips often focus on popular places and might offer a less unique experience compared to a charter.

About dive boat

The Saloon: First up, the saloon! It’s equipped with a comfortable kitchen, shower, and toilet, accommodating up to 6 people. For all you tea and coffee lovers, there’s a coffee maker and kettle, and a microwave for quick snacks. Plus, multiple charging stations so you never have to worry about a dead battery on your phone, computer, or underwater camera.

Dive deck: Moving on to the dive deck, originally a sport fishing boat, our Phoenix 29 has an unusually large cockpit. We’ve equipped it with mounting for 18 cylinders, trempels for wet and dry wetsuits, and hinged drawers for small accessories. There’s even a tub for desalination regulators and cameras, and an underwater base for decompression stops. Comfortably accommodating 6 divers, everyone has a place for their equipment.

Swim deck: Don’t forget about the swim deck! We’ve enlarged and strengthened it, installed a comfortable diver’s gangway, and a handrail for getting out of the water without removing your fins. And if you’re looking for some tailwind, head to the flybridge or skipper’s area. Here, you’ll find the main helm and navigation equipment, along with seating areas and places to stand with your arms spread out.

Power: Last but not least, power supply and motors. With the BLUETTI AC500 + B300S system, Buddy Boat has several days of autonomy, and the cabin has 8 USB and 4 type-C sockets for charging. The two Volvo diesel engines, totalling 400 HP, provide a cruising speed of 15 knots.
