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

Did a snorkling and diving trip with Manta Raya Divers and we had an amazing time. This was the first time we had been diving. Fernando did a thorough job explaining the equipment and basics of diving; within 30 mins we were diving. We had a blast diving and are already planning our next trip to Cozumel to go diving...

We are so happy you have such a great first time diving and had the very unique experience of an encounter with a pack of Dolphins, who came quite close to us, only a few will have that on the first Discover Scuba experience, I of course did enjoy the moment very much, thanks for sharing that experience with me...

We have been coming to Cozumel since 1989 and now diving with our children was the focus for this trip. Fernando and Sammy made this recent trip a success given our 21 year old daughter dove while recovering from a broken shoulder injury only 4 weeks previous , (crazy mountain bikers lives in Whistler) she had medical clearance but concerns...

First time with Mata Raya Divers. Very good experience, just our family, nice to not be part of these much larger groups that we saw out there. We had one of the guides snorkel with us the whole time, pointing out various things in the water while the other guide followed us in the boat. Fernando was very responsive on... More

Never wrote a review about Manta Raya, but this was our third time diving with them. And we will come back again for sure. Small single boat operation, never more than just a few divers in the boat. You will be impressed. We never rent a car because we stay in downtown, they pick us up at the hotel. Just... More

We met Fernado last year, my daughter and husband completed their deep water certification with Manta Raya Divers while we were in Cozumel. Fernando was highly recommended to us by a couple we know in Ottawa, who have been diving with Fernando three times a year, since 2005. My husband and daughter's experience last year was excellent.
