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. This year it... More

Cozumel diving is always unique and wonderful but it is made even more so when you have the pleasure of experiencing this special place with dive master Fernando Gonzalez and skipper Sammy with Manta Raya Dviers. My husband and I were certified by Fernando 14 years ago and we have returned to dive with him many times over the years.... More

We dove with Fernando on this trip to Cozumel and we had a fantastic experience. He took the two of us diving and we didn't run into any other dive groups! It was great, eagle rays were beautiful! Nice and easy, very comfortable. He is great for beginners or advanced. We will definitely find him again!

I spent a week diving with Fernando in Cozumel and it was the best. Fernando's love and respect for the ocean is very evident. He took just our group of four so we didn't have to worry about it being too crowded above and below the water. He prepared us well before each dive giving us an overview of each... More

If you want to dive anywhere on the Palancar Reef in Cozumel, check out Mantaraya Divers. We went on a great 2 tank tour with dive master Fernando and skipper Sammy. Drift diving was fantastic ....full of sea life in all descriptions. Prices were very reasonable since the tour was only my wife and I aboard with all equipment. We... More

My husband and I were introduced to Manta Raya and Fernando in November 2000. Each of our next 8 visits, we have always dove with Fernando. We have dived in other locations and in other states and countries. What separates Fernando from other dive operators is that there are no timed dives and you are allowed to dive to the... More

Drift diving in the warm clear waters of Cozumel is hard to beat, and the best way to do it is with Manta Raya Divers! Small groups, fast boat, and the opportunity to dive the best reefs and walls the island has to offer. Fernando and Samuel are an amazing team. No cat herding with this team. They let you... More

Fernando and Sammy provide an experience for beyond the your expectations. Smaller groups provide a better atmosphere for them to give the experience of a lifetime. Their knowledge is far beyond what you would hope for in a dive team. I have dove with Manta Raya on two trips year and cant wait to get back.

Our family has been diving with Mantaraya since 2005 and in our opinion they offer the best diving experience in Cozumel. Both Fernando and Sammy are professional, highly-knowledgeable and safety conscious. There are a lot of diving options in Cozumel, however, if you are looking for a personal diving experience that is unsurpassed on all fronts, look no further than... More

Diving with Mantaraya was excellent it's the best club I have ever been. Fernando and Sammy are a wonderful team and pleasant people! We dive in Palancar (cozumel) and it was a great experience.
