Reviews of the PADI Advanced Open Water Course
Will come back again! What a pleasure to write this review! Me and my husband just came back from a diving holiday in Lanzarote. After reading positive reviews on this site, we decided to book our PADI advanced courses with these guys. We felt welcomed from very beginning, everything was explained to us so there wasn't a moment when we wouldn't know what was happening. All equipment was in great condition. We have done 6 dives, completed our certifications and left Lanzarote with loads of new skills. As an awesome bonus, Rachel and Ariel have been taking photos on all dives we had together and what a great surprise when we got home and seen them! They are amazing! Some of the thing we saw: angel sharks, seahorse, trumpet fish, barracuda, trigger fish, grouper fish and many others. Thank you
Completed my open water course in September and then returned in October to complete my PADI advanced open water. All members of the team at the Manta dive centre were very helpful and friendly. They are very easy going and tailored the advanced course round the days of my holiday. Having little experience diving and attending the centre on my own everyone was very welcoming and answers all questions without any hassle. Additionally my instructor was excellent very relaxed and clearly enjoys his job. He was clear and concise with his instructions as well as having a good bit of banter at the same time. I really enjoyed both PADI courses and would highly recommend completing diving courses here or booking in for a dive if visiting the area. I will hopefully get a chance to return in the future.
