It was my 1st time going underwater, i have a 9 y.o. son who wanted to do it as well.I live in Ireland and I emailed them after reading all their good reviews and how good they are with beginners. Well I wasn't disappointed at all, Rachel answered my emails within an hour, when I arrived there. Ben reassured me (as i was worried about my son) and were so good,patient and took their time to explain everything! I also had a cousin with me, we are in our late 30's and were nervous, but once in the water, Alberto (who is also fantastic) Told me that kids pick it up quicker than adults!, Ben went underwater with my son 1st (as it took us longer to get the hang of it!) but within 3 minutes we were all underwater fully guided by Ben at the front (who took fantastic pictures of us!) and Alberto at the rear, guiding us and looking that we didnt go off track. I meant to go for a second dive, but a flud didnt let us :( (it was a very cold unusual weather in Lanzarote that week), we will def. be back next time to them to complete a course, I reccomend to take the pictures as they are fantastic memories . I felt safe at all times, also for my son, staff is fantastic! (Rachael even minded my Irish father in law while we were in the water!). Not enough words to recommend them, THANK YOU MANTA DIVING, BEN, RACHAEL AND ALBERTO!.

“Why oh why did I not do this years ago?!”
Reviewed January 27, 2012

I spent 3 days in December 11 in the capable hands of Rachel who not only got me through the PADI open water course but opened up a whole new world to me. Manta Diving Lanzarote has a great vibe to it, god I almost sound young(!), with Rachel and Ben being friendly helpful and professional all at the same time. The learning was fairly straightforward and the practical was well paced for a novice and I never felt out of mt depth (a poor pun!). At times, particularly trying to get my flippers off, it was hysterical but the thrill of scuba diving is impossible to adequately put into words (particularly with my limited vocabulary). If you have never scuba dived before and you are in Lanzarote, do it, do it now and do it with Manta Diving because you are sure to have a great time. I did and so did the others i met and spoke to there. I cant wait to go back for more. Have fun! David (an old git!)

Rachel and Ben were enthusiastic about the diving and diligent with their equipment maintenance. They were fully aware of the fragility of the environment they work in and encouraged students and fellow divers to be aware too. Everything you want to see in a good diver operator and more.
