My wife and I took the Open Waters course at Manta Dive in Gili Air and it was a fantastic experience. We got to dive in great sites where we saw lots of turtles, rays, tons of beautiful fish and even a baby shark! It was really cool diving, and the people who work there are all kind and helpful,...

Firsts of all don't be afraid of the size of this dive school. We normally like small personal dive schools, but Manta is one well oiled professional (and can be personal) relaxing diving machine. It's actually for lazy fun divers as we are. You're gear is already set up and brought to the boat. The only thing you have to... More

We did our open water course with Rob. He is a very experienced dive instructor, his teaching is very clear and enthusiastic and he makes a lot of jokes :) Based on our experiences, I would absolutely recommend Manta Dive to do your open water course!!

I did my open water course here, which was great! Laura Beyer was my instructor, she was patient in teaching and so enthousiastic about diving! I felt really comfortable in the water and would highly recommend her, and Manta Dive in general as well. Staff is friendly, helpful and flexible and there was an overall great vibe!

My girlfriend and I have decided to do our tune up, plus the aowd with the gili air mantas. Everything was well organized with high safety standards and beautiful dive sites. In comparison to the other dive clubs we have visited in Indonesia the instructors were extremely motivated, explaining us a lot about the environment and aquatic life.

We did 5 dives with Manta. We stayed at the Scallywags Mango Retreat Motel. The 10min walk from our hotel to Manta wasn't ideal - something to think about if you are not staying at Manta Dive. All the dive shops are clustered on the main road, so better to stay nearby I think, esp. for a short stay. On... More

We did an OWD and were really happy with Manta Dive and especially our instructor Al. The whole staff was super friendly and helpful and well experienced. I would come here again.

Did our advanced adventure courses with Manta on Air, and really enjoyed the whole experience. The manager, Rob, looked after us, and went through comprehensive briefings before and after the dives - including the night one, which was really interesting. Always felt safe and looked after. Good banter, good tutors and a good vibe around the place. I'd certainly recommend... More

Was a great experience, learnt a lot on our advanced adventure dives with Suzy, our instructor who was fantastic, very experienced and reassuring which is what my wife needed to calm her nerves. Well designed shop with good equipment, boat and crew and the other instructors were also friendly and helpful. The dive shop is also on the best strip... More
