Do I need to be able to swim to try scuba diving?

No. As long as you are comfortable with your face in the water you don’t need to be a strong swimmer to try scuba diving. While you are scuba diving you will be wearing fins. Additionally on the first time diving we stay in contact with the sandy bottom for the whole dive.

If I don't need picking up, where shall I meet you?

For all dives we meet at our dive centre to complete the paperwork and prepare equipment for the dive. The address of the dive centre is Calle Juan Carlos I, No6 Local 5, Puerto Del Carmen, 35510. If you are driving we recommend parking in the Biosfera shopping centre. There is free parking available and it is only a 2 minute walk from the dive centre. You can see the location on Google Maps on our contact page here: Map for parking near to the dive centre

Can I go diving and fly the same day?

No, after going diving you must wait at least 12 hours before flying home. We recommend booking your try dive for the beginning of your holiday so that in case you want to do another dive you have plenty of time!

Do you recommend pre-booking for the try dive?
Yes, as we like to keep our dive groups small we recommend pre-booking to avoid disappointment. We have PADI discover scuba dives Monday to Saturday at 12:30 and 14:30 so you can choose which day and time suits you best.
Can my discover scuba dive credit to the PADI Open Water Course?

Yes! If you enjoy yourself and would like to continue on the PADI Scuba Diver or PADI Open Water course with us we can credit the PADI discover scuba dive towards the first dive of the course.

Professional, personable and an amazing experience

Something I have wanted to do for a long time, and what's better than sharing it with my daughter. Very professional, but made us feel really welcome from start to finish. Instructions where clear which allowed us to maximise our experience. I would definitely recommend Manta Diving and hope to visit again in the future..... Brilliant!
