I called Manta for dives beyond the limits of recreational diving. The friendly and welcoming staff of Manta's Dive Center helped me during my dive days on Vis to step further into technical diving. I saw all spectacular wrecks that Vis island is so famous for. Thank you very much for that memorable experience. I'll surely return !

I visited with my girlfriend on October 2018. I am a certified Rescue Diver, and as far as my dives go, they went well. The staff was not especially nice or welcoming, but the dive sites themselves are spectacular and I enjoyed them. My partner had an OW certification at the time, but had only logged the certification dives, obtained two years prior, and had not been diving since. We communicated over email with the Manta owners to explain this situation, and chose to purchase a "Refresh Dive with guide", as posted on their website, which adds some cost to the dive from the boat. We got to the first dive site, and I went down with a dive master while my girlfriend stayed with the instructor/owner for her shallower and supposedly "refresher" dive. This "refresher dive" included no more than 20 minutes of the instructor scolding her and occasionally yelling at her for not remembering certain things, then basically starting the dive unprepared, and then yelling at her again back on the boat. This has had the result of putting her off diving. I can think of no worse service from a dive company, than putting someone off diving. In addition, during both my and her dives, the owner/instructor repeatedly grabbed octopus with her hands and squeezed them until they inked, for the sole reason of seeing them ink, and showing this to her customers. This, as any beginner OW diver knows, is incredibly stressful for the octopus, and is disturbing the wildlife and environment. One of the first things you learn as a diver is to not touch the wildlife and to disturb it as least as possible. I strongly recommend that any visitors to this beautiful island stay away from this dive shop. It was the worst dive service I have ever witnessed.

We visited Komiza to go and do some technical diving, we were not disappointed. Manta dive center and its owner Andi Marovic are brilliant at keeping their customers very happy. The boat we were using was very spacious and very well skippered. The diving we did was between 15mtrs and 100mtrs deep. Andi could not do enough for us and his other guests, he had requests for some on the fly repairs which he completed and allowed us all to carry on diving. All in all a brilliant dive center run by a very very honet decent person. We will be back with more like minded divers. Well done Andi, you should be proud of what you and you team provide.
