Just returned from holiday having had two great dives with Manthos and Dolphin Diving. A very chilled and relaxed guy - he may appear laid back, but he is watching and observing like a hawk. Very important for diving safety. His equipment is in good condition and thoroughly cleaned. I'll be back again next year. :)

I took my Padi OWD Course with Dolphin Diving Centre. I was lucky to find Manthos for my instructor. He is natural born teacher. Very calm, relaxed but at the same time clear, precise, accurate when teaching. He always asked if I had something unclear. Show a lot of useful tricks. He knows the sea around Skiathos as they were... More

We cannot praise Manthos and Dolphin Diving Center enough; a truly memorable week doing the PADI Open Water course. Mathos is an incredibly experienced and knowledgeable instructor. We loved going out on his boat each day, with his dog Scuba! We would definitely recommend Mathos to anyone looking to dive in Skiathos. We hope to dive with him again in... More

Both my daughters have learnt deep sea diving from Manthos Falaras and my eldest completed her Padi junior certificate when she was 12. My youngest was desperate to follow in her sister's flipper steps , but with an ear problem, that made it very difficult and potentially dangerous. Manthos was so patient and careful and Lucy is also fanatic about... More

As my son Oscar has now turned eight, I was hoping to get him into scuba diving( been waiting 8 years for this... ), knowing that kids can start the PADI Bubblemaker course at this age. So, with some persuasion I managed to haul him to Nostos, where he met Matthew or Manthos, who took a long look at young... More

I have just completed 8 dives with Manthos at the Dolphin Diving Centre on Nostos beach. Only a 2 minute walk from bus stop 12, Manthos brings his 25 years experience to bear in showing you the most interesting and varied sights of the 'other' Skiathos. Manthos insists on great briefings, good safety checks and pays attention to divers' experience... More

I was very nervous about scuba diving for the first time as I am not a fan of going under water but Im so glad i tried it! The diving instructor was great and explained everything clearly and made it easy to remember. Me and my partner both went diving but he is a qualified diver. I would recommend this... More

We have been visiting Skiathos for many years now. Both our daughters were taught by Manthos Falaras, possibly the best diving instructor ever. My wife Susan became a fearless deepsea diver with the help of Manthos. Her favourite is the 30 m deep nightdive she enjoys every year when we visit. Seriously recommended Eddy

I' m a recently qualified diver and so was keen to dive during our holiday. After meeting Manthos at his dive shack on Tzaneria beach (bus stop 12), I knew I'd come to the right place. I dived 3 times with Manthos, each time a different place and a different experience down to over 20m of crystal clear water teeming... More

We did a great deal of research about dive centers on Skiathos Island, and Manthos & Dolphin Diving are the only real, multi-agency accredited dive school and center on Skiathos. Manthos has been operating for over 25 years, and his knowledge of over 17 dive sites around this tiny 7-mile island reflects that commitment and passion. He assesses every diver's... More
