My wife and i landed at Manta Dive in Gili Trawangan after doing our diver course in Pemutaran Bali two days earlier. We had only a few logged dives at the time so we wanted a conscientious divemaster to ensure safe diving. The whole team was very professional and attentive to our `` new diver `` needs. We did awsome... More

An exhilarating experience, absolutely awesome. A must if you go to the Gili Islands. We did the snorkelling side of it and also saw plenty of colourful reef fish and coral. Loved it !!

Without a doubt a sensational dive centre. Excellent staff who all have the utmost professionalism. Beautiful clean accommodation which is icy cold so great for those hot nights. Ben runs a great place and I advise that everyone should visit Manta for at least one trip in their life. We have taken a few trips to Gili T and stayed... More

Manta Dive seems a well run dive school that has reasonably new equipment and would be a good place to learn to dive if you happened to be on Gili Trawangan. I would not recommend travelling here to learn to dive though. The shop and how they dived reminded me of some of the worst dive factories in Thailand. For... More

Dear Aquatic_Ape, Thank you for taking the time to write a review of your experience when diving with us.

This dive shop is good if you are a beginner who wants to meet other divers and party more than enjoy the dives. The company is big which makes you as a customer invisible. Me and my boyfriend wanted to do some fun dives and we were promised to go to some different spots, but the next day they had... More

Returning here after 2,5 years this place is still the best. I continued my dive adventure with some specialties and my girlfriend did her openwater and advanced. Because of the skilled instructors we were able to do everything at succesfully our own pace! The local dive guides know their way around the dive sites and show you awesome stuff! Recommend...
