Meet the Team

Concept Scuba Malta under the Management of Audrey Farrugia – Managing Partner and  Ray Micallef – Director of Diving & Master Scuba Diver Trainer

Our Divers

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!

Our Team

Stephanie – Ze is onze 21-jarige PADI instructeur en zo ook de jongste van ons team. Stephanie heeft altijd al van water gehouden, maar voornamelijk van onderwater te zijn. Al sinds ze kon stappen, begon ze eveneens in het water te plonzen, nooit schrik van uiteindelijk kopje onder te gaan. Eens ze afgestudeerd was van de middelbare school, ging ze naar Fiji om vrijwilligerswerk te verrichten in een natuurbehoud project. Terwijl ze genoot van het duiken, verzamelde ze data over de lokale vissen, roggen, schildpadden en haaien om het marine leven in kaart te brengen. Tijdens haar verblijf, ontwikkelde ze haar passie voor duiken en realiseerde ze zich dat ze deze ook graag wou delen met anderen. Op dit moment, studeert ze in Malta en brengt ze zoveel mogelijk (vrije) tijd door met duiken.

Stephanie – She is our 21-year old PADI instructor, and with this also the youngest of our team. Stephanie always loved the water and especially being underwater. As soon as she could walk, she started diving into water, never being afraid when she went under. Once she graduated from high school, she went to Fiji and did some voluntary work in a conservational project. While enjoying diving, she collected data on local fishes, rays, turtles and sharks for the marine life project. During her time there she developed her passion for diving and realised she wanted to share this passion with other people. At this moment, she is studying in Malta and spends as much time as possible on diving.
