Before I started diving I did a lot of research into dive centres. I could have done my course anywhere in the world as I travel lots with work. I decided on Manta after visiting their website & calling Linda several times by phone. I did my PADI Open Water & Advanced with Jim. Manta doesn't try and sell you what you don't need either, unlike some other dive shops on the Island. They are the most professional friendly & caring teachers you could hope to meet & made my experience an absolute pleasure. Now I have dived all over the world but still go back to Manta 2-3 times a year to go diving with them as they treat you like family. My last dives earlier this year were with Ben who is an excellent confident knowledgeable instructor who I would recommend to any new or inexperienced divers. He is very patient & an excellent teacher. For the experienced diver he will show you the best spots on the island, go diving with Manta you wont be sorry!!!
