Diving with Manthos

After last years fantastic Junior Open Water PADI Qualification, I returned to gain more experience in the water. Fantastic dives, lots of marine life and brilliant experiences.

Finding Manthos is the best thing you will ever do for your snorkelling and diving ambitions. Excellent professional tuition and advice. Great for try dives and PADI courses. None divers can snorkel from the boat in fantastic locations around Skiathos. More advanced divers can enjoy night and wreck dives.

Skiathos is a beutiful island, the right size to give you anithing you want at an arm length, also amazing dive spots. That's given by the nature, Manthos makes the rest, 28 years of experience in the area, he is naturally able to make you feel relaxed and to let you just "enjoy the dive, nice and easy". If you...

What a great dive, Manthos and his mate Tom provided a friendly, calm and collected air to a great little dive at Repi, lighthouse island. Diving with Georgio, we descended a wall to 12-15m, then rounded the tip of the island, saw quite a few morals, some exquisite delicate corals, invertebrates, and some tiny neon blue fish. Through a nice... More

I have just got back from Skiathos where I completed my padi course with Manthos the dive instructor, who is brilliant at his job. This was my first experience ever at diving and I'm glad I came here to do this as every dive was different and always safe and you always learn't something different everyday, I highly recommend this...

I had my first diving experience in Skiathos with the instructor Mr. Manthos. He really made my day. The dive was fun and safe with good diving equipment. I'll be back!

I dived here last week on holiday in Skiathos and I have to say that this dive school was the best I have ever used. Manfos is very helpful, organised and professional. I enjoyed the whole experience as it was a small cosy group of divers going each morning. Also Manfos invites partners to go on the boat trips as... More

Just returned from Skiathos and I am so impressed with the safety that is shown at the Diving Centre with Manthos. He makes it great fun but the safety is paramount. Thank you for making my diving experience such a pleasure.

Very professional, good equipment and great boat. But unfortunately we did not see anything exciting excepted a couple of Moray eels (and those are not really exciting). Probably overfishing has to be blamed… I still give the club a good rating because it is not their fault but honestly, diving in Skiathos is not worth it.
