Wreck dive was rough. Current was very strong, spent a lot of air and energy. Reef and museo was excellent, nice drift dive. Two negatives with Manta Divers, 1) two of the dive masters took what appeared to be a hit off a joint (not positive, but the held the cig like a joint), at least the perception was bad.... More

Hi Jim, Thank you for your feedback we enjoy reading all reviews and use them to expand our customer satisfaction. There are rules in place in the Mexican Caribbean Parks that state that you have to be with a guide at all times. This rule was made due to the harsh diving conditions and the safety of not just yourself... More

The staff here is very friendly and experienced. They all want to ensure you have an awesome diving trip. They took me to reefs, wrecks and underwater museums with lots of beautiful fish and scenery. Thanks for all the great memories!!! Wayne

We enjoyed three days of diving with Manta in January 2015. Everything was first rate. We loved diving with Alex. And a beer and a taco at the Blue Gecko (which they also own) was a great end to the day.

I paid USD$433 for an "Extreme Dive Package" with Manta Divers, which included 2 dives in Cancun, 2 in Cozumel, 2 cenotes, and 2 wreck dives (8 dives total). I dove with them on February 25th, 26th, and 28th, 2015. On February 27th, they were supposed to take me to Cozumel to do 2 dives, but they canceled this trip... More

Weather does effect this business more so than most, but we are still sorry that you missed your dives in Cozumel. I assure you that we do give out refunds as well as respond to all of our emails. I do know that it does take time for the refunds to be processed by the bank. I am sorry that... More

I was looking for a private boat to accommodate to our needs at a reasonable price. I was able to get in touch with Mimi (the owner). She was very helpful... More

Had a great experience with Manta Divers. Spoke with the shop via email and over the phone several times before I got to Mexico and had the dives all set up (I find that is a very good way to judge dive outfits in the Caribbean. If they have good and immediate communication, you’re usually golden). Mimi was wonderful to... More

We feel that are master diver didn't listen to the problems we were having with our equipment and later we found out it would... More
