I've been diving Cozumel for about 25 years, so I've gotten to know most of the dive sites. This trip, we tried diving with Manta Raya divers for the first time. Fernando and Sammy were very easy-going and totally focused on making this a good experience, both for experienced divers and for nervous novices. We go to dive Punta Sur,... More

My wife and I finished (open water dives) our scuba certification in Cozumel with Fernando and had a great time. The certification dives were done in a safe area where we felt comfortable and after we finished our trainning we got to finish out the tanks exploring some of the surrounding coral and fish. Fernando did an excellent job teaching... More

I have been diving all over the world, and I can honestly say that diving with Manta Raya has been one of the best operations I have encountered anywhere. Period. Fernando and Sammy know the island, the reef, the divers and the wildlife so well that each dive is tailored to the goals and needs of each individual, with great... More

We did our second snorkeling trip with Manta Ray divers in March. I'd highly recommend them to anyone looking for a great snorkeling trip. Both times we did three different reefs--each experience was different and both were excellent. Because a guide goes in with you and they know where to find different fish, etc., they're able to show you things... More

Fernando and his crew once again bring the best dive experience to a new level. Fernando and Sammy have always gone above and beyond to make our dives enjoyable and this was no exception. If you want to avoid the slow moving, "cattle-boat" crowds, this is your guide. Fernando has a knowledge of the reef and its inhabitants that you... More

Our recent dive trip to Cozumel diving with Manta Raya, Fernando and Sammy, was outstanding as usual! They are great helping with the gear, tailoring the dives to meet the needs/skills of the group and never fail to find and point out the critters. We like to take pictures so this is a real plus! The small boat and limited... More

Fernando certified me 25 years ago when he worked for one of the big guys. I followed him when he began Manta Raya. My wife, 7 kids and spouses, and 8 grandchildren jump at the chance to return to Cozumel and dive with him. Manta Raya has the fastest dive boat on the island. 8 max divers, often 2-4 divers....

I have to echo DRBintansit's review! I've been diving with Fernando and Samuel for many years now. There *are* many diver operators in Cozumel, and I've been with a number of them. Manta Raya is my favorite. It is a small, fast boat - 8 divers is a *big* number for them, and I've only been with that many at... More

Cozumel is one of the great diving destinations in the Western Hemisphere, and there are many diver operators from which to choose. However, if your preference is a small group of divers, a lot of personal attention from the staff, and the opportunity to dive the best sites in Cozumel, Manta Raya Divers should be your first choice. Fernando and... More
