On first glance I wasn't sure about Mantaraya being the best choice because the boat is older and small. However, the diving was excellent, Fernando knew wonderful spots and made sure they weren't overrun with other divers. He is knowledgeable and a great guide. And the service he and Sammy provided was above and beyond. We hardly had to touch... More

We have been diving with Manta Raya for many years and Fernando and Sammy always take good care of us. This trip was no exception. We always see great sea life, learn new things about the creatures, and this time we added a couple of unusual sightings to our experience. A large bat fish was very cooperative during his photo...

I've been diving with Fernando and Manta Raya Divers for 16 years now! He genuinely cares about the oceans and life in them. He is incredibly knowledgeable and it is facinating learning from him. Sami is highly skilled and great company on and under the water. These men are the reason we keep coming back to Cozumel. Experiencing this beautiful... More

I cant say enough about how well we were treated during our two days of diving with Fernando. I've been diving for over 40 years with a 17 year gap before this trip. My youngest daughter was doing her open water certification, my oldest daughter was a very inexperienced diver. Fernando and Sammy's customer service skills prior to and during... More

I last dove with Fernando of Manta Raya Divers 14 years ago and on a lark I searched to see if he was still in business. I was overjoyed to find that he was still running Manta Raya Divers and that he would give my son and I an experience to remember again. We were lucky enough to dive with... More

I highly recommend Manta Raya Divers with Fernando for diving in Cozumel, without reservations! You will not be disappointed with the small (but fast) boat, personalized service, and excellent divemaster, Fernando. My 15 year old son completed his Padi certification with Fernando, diving his 4 open water dives, and I am confident that he received great training. In addition to... More

Beside having small group diving (8 divers is a lot), experienced divers can dive their air and computer - a lot of operations limit their dives to 35 - 45 minutes, regardless of how much air or dive time they have left. Many times they will pick you up at a pier near your hotel, and return you there -... More

Another outstanding week of diving with Fernando and Sammy. We have been diving for many years with Manta Raya and have never been disappointed, even when the weather was not so cooperative. Fernando always finds the perfect spot to accommodate divers with a variety of skills and 'avoid the crowds' even in the most popular spots. Would not dive with... More
