Manta is Great! People are Great! The location is good.

Our family has been diving with Manta in Cancun over the last seven years. They are very accommodating, informative, friendly and professional.

I wish I could give 6 stars! My bf and I came to Cancun for a friend's wedding. My bf is an experienced diver and I needed to do my check out dives to complete my open water certification. I was very nervous about my first ocean dive being with someone I had never met...until I met Alex. She was... More

We went on a family excursion - I went diving w Stephan and my wife and kids for their first ever snorkeling. Manchiones reefs off Isla Mujeres. Stephan was excellent - explained the dive plans. Kit in fine working order. We saw the croc that's taken temporary residency under the jetty - a nice way to start! Then off to... More

Thank you for the review. Yes our main focus of the shop is diving, we do provide snorkeling as a courtesy to the friends and family members of divers if they want to join in on the trip. I hope your snorkelers turn into divers soon! Being under the sea is much better than being on top :) More

The folks at the shop were very friendly and more importantly were also experienced. Manta is by no means a "high budget" operation, so set your expectations accordingly but I would absolutely highly recommend the group if you plan to dive.

Thank you for the review! Yes being across from the Oasis Grand/Pyramid is both a blessing and a curse. We like to consider ourselves a Mom and Pop shop, where you get a more personal feel instead of one of those bigger cattle car dive companies. Come back again! More

This is the worst dive we have ever done. Their boat should not even be on the open water. I had a rusty pole fall on me from the top. The boat was not filled up with gas. When we went to go get gas, the dive masters went to smoke. There were 4 of us, with a total of... More

Thank you for your review we always use these to better our customer experience and service. I was there and saw the canopy pole break and fall down. We are very sorry this happened, we cannot plan on random events such as this. It was fixed the same evening. To say it was rusty is a bit of a stretch... More

I can't say enough about this place! Manta assisted me in my 4 open water dives to receive my certification. They also allowed my husband to come along on those dives at an incredibly reasonable price! When our trip was delayed a few weeks, they were more then willing to reschedule things with us. Upon arrival to Cancun, we contacted... More

Thank you for the review. I love when people overcome their nerves or fears, and prove to themselves that they can do something they normally wouldn't do. Come back soon and dive with us again, there is still a lot you have not seen that we can show you :) Congratulation on getting certified! More

Just returned from Cancun and dove 3 days with Manta. Romeo & Jara were excellent dive masters, they exceeded our expectations. I rented equipment (bc & reg) and thought it was fine, I saw another review which said it was out of date. Marie & Matt in the shop were very helpful and accommodating. John the owner was wonderful, don't... More

Staff very knowledgeable and friendly. Very excited to see people interested in scuba. Sure its there business. But no really if you get a chance to talk with any of the instructors you will see they all have passion for diving. Let them show you videos of what you can see too.

OMG we LOVE diving!! Every single person that works here dives every single chance we can. To say we have passion for it is an understatement. The main reason this store exists is so that we can dive. Bringing others with us and training new divers is just an added bonus that pays for our fun. Thank you for the... More

I used Manta divers to earn my adventure certification and my son used it to get his open water certification. I thought Stephon did a great job. He went above and beyond what was expected, always testing and refining my diving knowledge. The dive themselves ranged from ok MUSA to great on the reefs off Isla Mujeres. The trip to... More
