“Great Diving Experience and Memories! Miss it already...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2013

I'm new to diving, and only I got my PADI Open Water certification in July in preparation for a trip to Lanzarote. I knew about Manta before arriving because of their website. My first dive with Manta was a 'try out' dive and I took my 10 year old nephew with me. The staff was friendly and helpful...putting us both at ease. We had fun! We had so much fun that we did a follow-up dive with my boyfriend (who has his advanced certification). This time, we paid a little extra for a photo CD. Well worth the investment. A few days later, my nephew spent the day at Manta (after some studying) to complete his PADI 'Scuba Diver' certification...while we tried out a couple of dives with another dive centre. Let's just say that my nephew learned lots, had a fabulous time, and saw an exciting variety of sea life (seahorses, an angel shark, octopi, barracudas...). We were hoping to see a similar variety, but no luck. So jealous! Manta is located close to the beach and truly created a fabulous experience for all of us. Would love to go back.

“Absolutely Fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2013 via mobile

Was staying in puerto del carmen for a few weeks and decided to do my advanced open water with Manta Diving. Ben, Rachel and and the guys were absolutely amazing. Will go back and do my next course with them without a doubt. Very, very good.

“Great diving, friendly guides”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2013

This was our first visit to Lanzarote and we were surprised to see how many fish lived in the sea here. Lovely shoals everywhere you look, aswell as tuna, grouper, morays and a lovely sting ray called Stumpy(he lost part of his tail).
We dived a different site every dive, it was great fun. We would definetly dive with Manta diving again.

“One of the best memories for my holiday”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013

My partner and I emailed Manta Diving a couple of weeks before our holiday to book ourselves in for a Discover Scuba dive, as we are both newbs and the idea of diving is something we both had wanted to attempt in life.
Rachel picked us up from our apartment with an other gentleman taking a more advanced course, who could only rave about diving here.
We received very thorough and friendly guidance before hand and then took the stroll down to the beach. Ollie spent a lot of time with me in waist deep water as I really started to worry this was something I couldnt do. When I managed to join the group under the water I began to panic again, and Ben must have noticed this with my short breaths! He took my hands and encouraged me to watch him and follow his breathing patterns. I immediately relaxed.
(My contact lens did pop out, and Ben and Ollie helped me to the surface to get it back in - wouldnt want to miss out on seeing any marine life once I had got past my nervousness!)
Once I calmed and relaxed I was able to complete the experience and was so proud of myself!

We both had a great time and would recommend to anyone to try their first dive with this amazing team. A personal thanks from me to Ollie and Ben. We really hope to get the chance to come again and take things further!
