“Something Old & Something New”

This was my fifth time diving with Manta and the first time diving for my partner. We did the refresher (for me) and the Discover Scuba for her. The professionalism and understanding of the new diver was amazing. Our dive master Luis was amazing in his patience with the beginner divers. His introduction towards the sport of scuba was perfect and in that my girl not only was comfortable in her surroundings but became influenced to where she will be getting certified. We dove two tanks and the second dive was as smooth as any I have ever been on. Manta is the perfect dive company for both the advanced diver as well as someone who just wonders if Scuba is for them. Thank you Again Manta Scuba. Jimmy, Manta's page on Trip Advisor
