I did my open water course at Manta with a swedish instructor Ronnie. This was a SSI certificate. I did the course in 3,5 days. The first day was a half day with watching some movies on a DVD that explained the dangers and what was going to happen in the water. The second day was pool exercises where we... More

I had a group of 4 friends and had 5 dives with dive guide, Zae Zianlii, for 2 days with Manta Dive. The dives were wonderful and safety is their priority especially when they know the local waters well. If the waters ain't in favour, they always have something to provide as a counter-offer. All their staff were friendly, organised... More

I really enjoyed did my Open Water course in Manta. From the beginning I was feeling insecure about my decision to do it but my instructor always encouraged me and pushed me to get it. She always stayed with me in the pool and in the sea and that for me was really important to get confidence with myself. All... More

Had two dives. One night, one day. The night dive was interesting but lacked a lot of life. Still enjoyable and with a good guide. The following morning we headed to Stuart's Reef and this was far more enjoyable. There was plenty of life and vis was 20m+. Will have no hesitation in going with Manta Dive again.

I recently stayed in the traditional bungalows for 6 nights while I was diving with Manta. I absolutely loved everything about this place. The staff (instructors, guides and accommodation staff) were all super friendly and accommodating- everyone I met- Magic, Simo, Xander, Eve, Super, Eddie, Harriet were all awesome. I did 6 out of my 8 fun dives with one... More

I had a 'fun dive' with these guys. The diving on Gilli T is great regardless of who you do it with because of the underwater life and coral. I just found Manta to be a bit impersonal, if you were a doing fun dives only you might be put off by the amount of people being put through open... More

Stayed here just for two nights as I was attending a birthday party on the island. Great location and very clean and modern rooms. Didn't partake in any of the diving but as a diver I noticed the expat run operation seemed very professional and safe.

We did 2 dives with Sugar as our divemaster. Had such a good time. All the guys are really easy going and fun, and the dives were both excellent. Saw so many turtles!

We upgraded our Scuba diver to Open water at Manta Dive. Our instructor (Rob) was very professional and skilled, he made us feel at ease from the first minute. We had lots of fun here!

My brother and I stayed and dived with Manta for just over a week. Everything was fantastic - there is a great, relaxed vibe at Manta and all the dive staff are top class. My brother did his open water course with Harriett and loved it so much he did is advanced straight after! Harriet was one of the best... More
