Reviews of the Divemaster course
Glad I chose Manta Diving to do my Divemaster course. Ariel was a great instructor, and Rachel took the time at the end to give me advice on finding work in marine conservation. Highly recommended.
I have spent my past two summer holidays diving with Manta Diving Lanzarote. This year spending two months completing my Dive Master Qualification. I got an insight into the other side of diving and had the joy of studying under excellent staff (who are more like a family). They made me a confident dive master and a better diver all round. They are the perfect stop for complete beginners or for those wanting to continue their diving education. Could not recommend them more. Do yourself a favour and if you want to dive in Lanzarote, dive with Manta.
