Manta’s History

2002 - First Days of Manta

Manta was first opened in a small shop in Cabo, Back then the town was much smaller, most roads were made of dirt, and the shop was located far away from the Marina. We used to take our divers by Taxi to the dock and load the tiny "Panga" with gear. The boat was so small it could not take more than 4 divers and 1 guide. The whole Manta team consisted of two Dive Instructors (Eran and Kiki) and a one boat captain.

With more divers Manta finally moved closer to the sea, to Medano Beach. By the time, manta had its own custom made dive boats, larger crew and professional boat captains. The boats were loaded with divers and launched from Medano beach.

Manta was growing and in 2009 we where operating 4 boats. Diving trips to Cabo Pulmo and Gordo Banks where very common and even a Striped Marlin project in the Pacific together with the famous Underwater photographer Amos Nachoum.
After several years on the beach it was time for another advance, Manta finally moved its operation to a shop in the Marina. A shop dedicated to diving, with showers and even an indoor practice pool. The compressors, which until then were located in a shack uptown, moved in as well.
