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

I can't compare manta dive to the other dive operators on the island as I only dived here. The staff seamed very knowledgeable and the dive sites were great. Saw a huge green turtle and two sharks and enjoyed the boat trip to the site.

I really wanted to learn how to dive so did the taster which involved a pool session in the morning and then a dive to 12m in the afternoon. My instructor, Laura, was lovely, a great teacher and really good at making me feel calm especially when I couldn't equalise my ears during the afternoon dive. Was a fantastic experience... More

In short, I can't say enough how wonderful my diving experience was with Manta Gili Air. What a great dive shop. All of my email interactions leading up to my arrival were timely, and packed with information about the courses we were enquiring about. From the start my choice of store couldn't have been easier. Upon arrival we were made... More

I spent a week diving with Manta while on Gili Air, and was really happy with my choice of dive shop. Manta's staff were very helpful when I contacted them by email to book a scuba review and nitrox certification in advance, and explained clearly how the pricing structure would work and what levels of discounts they could offer for...
