Mark is a Malta STAR
Paradise Diving Malta’s PADI MSDT Mark Dove has won the Malta Tourism Authority award for best instructor for the 2011 season in their STAR award scheme.
Mark received his award certificate, a cheque for €800 and an 18ct gold lapel pin at the awards ceremony at the Phoenicia Hotel in Valletta, Malta on 3 April 2012. Since the award started in 2006, it has been won five times by an instructor from Paradise Diving, in 2006, 2007, 2009, 2010 and 2011. This was the first time that Mark won. The prize is awarded to whoever receives the most nominations from divers during the year. Most of the voters are tourists and they have the chance to win a holiday in Malta by participation in a draw.
