“Great team, great diving”
Reviewed October 28, 2013

The dive team agree are great, well organized and experienced. The diving was off the beach and we saw a wide range of Marne life from pregnant 20cm sea horses to huge turtles, rays ect.....

Overall a great place to dive at a reasonable price

“Breathtaking experience”
Reviewed September 27, 2013

One of the best experiences I've ever had. Diving alongside turtles and several colorful fishes was the highlight of my trip to Mancora. The instructors could not have been more professional and the gear was top class. I recommend this experience 100%!

“Review of Diving Course and Staff”
Reviewed September 7, 2013

I could not recommend this course highly enough to anybody who has ever thought about diving. Let alone is it great value and a great underwater experience GUARUNTEED but the diving instructor I had, Patrick O'Donnell, was very interested in teachng the course and made it all the more enjoyable. Breaking down the science of it and making it easy to understand and was was alert to the smallest detail both above the water when preparing and underwater when searching for along the reef and doing different skill exercises. The whole staff at Spondylus were great people. Going out for lunch together and very welcoming. You leave there feeling you'd made good friends as well as had a great experience. A must-do if in the mancora area.
