I sincerely recommend this diving center. The owner gave us a great dive and you could really tell safety was very important. I also got a few tips on how to become a better diver. He was fun, we had a great laugh and the diving was just awesome!! Go here if you want to get an amazing dive, have... More

manthos really knows his stuff and very quickly pointed out things I'd forgotten (re setting up equipment) in a polite and non judgemental way. I had only planned one dive on this holiday but enjoyed it so much I booked a second. Very good rates compared to other dives I have done. Will definitely return!

I feel sorry for people who get carried away complaining, my two sons & husband did the diving from dolphin Diving Centre at Porto Nostos in July 2014, and had a wonderful experience. My husband was particularly impressed with the patience and ability of the instructor on the day, displayed with the novices. Everything was thoroughly covered and explained. A... More

Not a good dive shop. The good... Nice location, ok dive hut, ok access to the boat, nice boat, ok washing, ok rentals. The bad... Terrible in organizing the dive. We went for the noon dive. We were there at 1200. By the time everyone was sorted, we got on the boat at 1250. We got to the dive location,... More

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.
