I chose to dive with Dolphin based on other reviews and I was not disappointed. I began my experience with a very warm welcome from Manthos and next day I returned with my kit which he looked after and dried out for me after the dives. Manthos clearly keeps an eye on his customers to be sure of their skill... More

We had 3 years break from receiving our PADI certificate and I was thinking it will be challenging, however Manthos made the dive for me and my husband an increadible and easy experience. Thank you, we'll be back! Gabriela and Tuomo, Finland

All four of us - mum, dad, daughter 18 and son 12 had a fab first ever dive with Manthos. He's a great instructor with a friendly calm manner and good sense of humour. Even the more nervous of our group felt completely at ease and look forward to repeating the experience. We highly recommend The Dolphin Diving Center Skiathos.

Went to Manthos in July this year. Send him an email before and asked if he could take care of us one day at our vacation. We, a family of four with limited diving experience visited Dolphin Divning Center the first time two years ago. This time the expectations were high. Should we have the same super nice trip. Yes...

best instructor ever! i never had so much fun than here. usually the diving instructors are sober and fade, but not this guy :) he made funny tricks in the water, he's very calm and has lots of patience. you can easily see that he has over 30 years of experience. I 100% recommend this diving center.

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
