Established in 1993, we are an American owned and operated PADI 5 Star Dive Center. We have a large selection of rental equipment as well as a compressor. We cater more towards smaller dive parties taking anywhere from 2-11 divers per boat per trip. We do NOT operate CATTLE BOATS. We want you to feel like you're part of the family. If you would like to see our shop, equipment and boats please visit us on the Manta Divers Facebook page or on our website (please see links below).

Our dive shop is conveniently located at the Marina Del Rey, km 16 of the hotel zone (Kukulcan Blvd.). We are on the lagoon side, just across the street from the Grand/Pyramid Oasis hotel.

Manta Divers offers a diverse choice of incredible dive sites which are unique to the rich waters of Cancun. The Caribbean is home to the world’s second largest barrier reef, with an over abundance of colorful marine life in crystal clear water. It's like diving in an aquarium!

Dive with Grandchildren

The shop, and guide were awesome. The Camera lady did an excellent job and we bought a lot of pictures for only $50. I would highly recommend this Dive shop.

Alex (the awesome lady behind the front desk) did a fantastic job of fitting me in for 9 dives on a last minute booking! Brilliant instructors & accommodating to everybody's requirements. Keep up the good work!

I took a short course dive with Manta Divers and the instructor was very impatient , rushing through the steps. he did express him not being one of the regular instructors and had just finished a longer dive with someone before us. This means what to me ? Anyway I was fitted with dive weights and we proceeded to the... More

Hi Lifeis2goodtimes, I was very surprised to read you review because of the way you described your instructor, we know exactly who it was, he was freelancing for us and as you surely can imagine, we fired him a long time ago ! We are terribly sorry to read about the bad experience you had with us on your first... More

We had three Open Water certified divers and one 13 year-old who needed his open water dives for certification. Gabriel was great with our diver getting certified. He was very thorough and made sure he felt safe and had a good understanding of all the skills. We also had Neil as our dive master, who was really on top of... More

I have an Advanced PADI certification and wanted to dive with my 11&15 year old sons. We can now enjoy the pleasures of the underwater world thanks to our friends at Manta Divers. Thank you for such great, personal and professional service. Now we can come back and take advantage of living in paradise.

My husband and I went to Cancun last month with the goal of diving as much as possible. We connected with Manta Divers and I'm so glad we did! We ended up going on 7 dives (over 4 days) and had a great experience. Alex handled all the communication leading up to our dives and worked well with us. We... More

We signed up with Manta Divers to do some Cenote diving. We were greeted by Alex who was friendly and helpful, answering all our questions. We did two dives at Chac Mol where we were shown many different fossils, and aquatic life. We were given a thorough briefing including some history of the site, and all safety precautions. We really... More

A small dive shop that is tucked away along hotel row and well worth a visit. Miss Alex runs the office and will do everything to co-ordinate your dive plans. Stephan is an experienced, multilingual (French, English, Spanish and Tiewanese) instructor/ dive master. The rental equipment, dive boats, shop and training pool are clean and well maintained. My safety and... More

Thank you guys for exceptional diving experiences. My favourite has to be Cenotes Chac Mool. First time in a Cenotes it was truly magical a "wow" factor indeed. The sea dives were spectacular thanks to Leo for leading the way and taking care of us. Tip (mark all your gear with your name) as they store it at the shop... More
