Concept Scuba Malta under the Management of Audrey Farrugia – Managing Partner and Ray Micallef – Director of Diving & Master Scuba Diver Trainer
Ray – co-owner proprietor of Concept Scuba Malta is now in his 43rd year as a Scuba, Snuba, Rebreather and Technical Diver too as well as being a PADI Staff Instructor now he personally numbers over 5K dives plus. There’s very little about diving Ray hasn’t tried or done himself and as he says he’s always looking toward being innovative and can’t wait for the next new invention in diving so he can try it! Obviously still as enthusiastic as that very first day back 1977 when he took the first official lesson on how to dive he beams up with his countless stories of diving here and there across this globe over the years, his most favourite of dives being here in the Maltese and the Caribbean islands. He opened up this dive centre because having dived and worked as a freelance instructor with most of the big dive centres here in Malta in the past he realised there was just that little something missing from his involvement:- that of running a dive centre to his high standards and over and above all one that respects and holds to heart a genuine customer care!” If my clients don’t end up lifelong friends then I have failed”, you often hear him say to his carefully chosen Instructors… all do!
