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!

Nojus (Noah) has been working in the field of sports for 10 years already, as a personal trainer. He has associated his professional career with sports and the improvement of human physical characteristics. While working as a personal trainer, he always paid great attention to the health of his clients, improvement of their physical characteristics, and injury prevention. Throughout his career as a professional trainer, he had prepared professional athletes for competitions. As a coach, he had received the award of the Prime Minister of the Republic of Lithuania for particularly high sports achievements, and the athlete he trained, became 2018- 2019 IFBB  European and World Champion. Nojus had been ranked among the top 10 fitness professionals in Lithuania for 4 years in a row.

Nojus has been long interested in freediving. First time he tried freediving 2014 in Hawaii. Now he is a certified AIDA freediving instructor. He was living & freediving in Dahab (Egypt), Bali (Indonesia), Panglao (Philippines) & now Malta.

Freediving is a sport and activity that combines spiritual, mental & physical aspects. Millions of people around the world enjoy snorkelling. Many of them will also take a big breath and dive down for a few brief moments to have a closer look at a colourful coral, a shy turtle – or just for the fun of it. That is where freediving begins. New born babies enjoy being under water simply for the fun of it. Holding our breath and allowing the water to carry us seems to be part of human nature. Learning to freedive as adults is a way to re-discover these forgotten abilities.

He has travelled to more than 64 countries and dove in many places around the world in countries including Ecuador, Curacao, Mexico, Spain, Egypt, Greece, Cyprus, Malta, Turkey, Thailand and Cambodia.
