Have dived with Manthos for many years, the boat is an excellent craft to dive from, he is very experienced and always makes you feel safe, the diving equipment is the best quality and 100% reliable. Months knows all the best dive sites on the island. Looking forward to next years adventures.

Months is a really nice guy who is extremely helpful and courteous. Diving equipment is of excellent quality and fabulously maintained. He will give you tips which we don't get in this Country on how to set up your kit. He is very professional and will give you a detailed dive briefing and safety rules etc. I can't recommend him...

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
