I tried a couple different operators on the islands. Among the endless choices of dive shops on the Gilis, this is the one you wanna go for! I came here to do a couple of fun dives and left two weeks later as an advanced open water diver with deep and nitrox specialties. The amazing instructors, dive masters and other... More

Best place to stay on Gili Air. My wife and i did our open water dive tickets with Manta dive. Highly recommended! Thanks to Rob and the dive team and thanks to the staff at the waterfront hotel, always smiling and friendly. We'll definitely be back!

If you're interested in diving or getting certified manta dive Gili air is the place to do it. Our instructor Suzy were really patient, comfortable to dive with and great at explaining for all to fully understand. One of the best things I've done so far on my so far 1 month long trip in South East Asia.

Manta Dive is great for diving. Our instructor Rob was super experienced and made us feel save going under water. He was very patient, helpful and funny! It made our first diving experience excellent and I would definately come here again and recommend the place to others. The accommodation is very nice as well and the staff was very friendly.

The rooms and atmosphere was really nice, the people were great! We did our PADI here and our teacher Rob was very helpful, patient and funny. It took away all my fears, so we could just enjoy the beautiful underwater world of the Gilis. Would def recommend this place!

I cannot say enough how great the staff and diving experience is at Manta Gili Air. If you want clean great rooms, beautiful staff, amazing experienced and friendly dive instructors (Rob Pugh rules!) an awesome restaurant, a bustling warm and international atmosphere, and incredible value for money, then Manta Dive is for you!

We did our OWD course and chose Manta due to the excellent reviews on TA. Rob Pugh was our instructor and was very good. My partner and I passed the course and loved the whole experience. I was VERY nervous but managed to complete each dive regardless, gaining more and more confidence every day. A couple of days later we... More

My wife and I did an introductory dive course here and had a great experience. Our instructor, Rob Ladd, was an experienced and effective teacher with no shortage of personality. The instructors at this school work very hard during the busy season, but despite this their enthusiasm for diving is seemingly endless. Safety was paramount at all times. Staff at... More

With two teens in tow who wanted to learn to dive, I was reluctant. However, since they are both competitive swimmers I gave in. After interviewing two other dive facilities on Gili Air we choose Manta as our instruction facility. Our instructor, Emma from Finland, is a brilliant instructor. She is patient, dealt well with my apprehensiveness, took the time... More

From the time I called to make a reservation for open water dive course until the end of the course we had such pleasant experience with the staff & dive guides. Everyone was very helpful and kind. So glad we got Roxy to teach my teen age girl the open water course. She had such an amazing time & I... More
