Reviews from Discover Scuba Divers!

Great experience Friendly staff, and very cool time. It’s like a different world under the water surface, about 6 metres. The centre is only 2 minutes walk from the sea. I would go back again.

Great experience, with friendly, patient, understanding staff. I felt well looked after and safe taking part in this activity with my three teenage children. My children were very confident while I was quite nervous. Appropriate time and care was taken with each of us to ensure that we had an enjoyable and memorable time. Thank you! We went in the afternoon, which was much busier, the beach and sea is much quieter in the morning and there are more fish around then.


A fantastic experience For anyone wanting to try diving for the first time I would definitely recommend Manta Diving Lanzarote. I did the introductory scuba dive experience and a dive at the museum all in the one package. Which I thought was excellent value for money. The staff were great, very friendly, confident and experienced. Thanks again all at Manta Diving Lanzarote for a great experience. I will see you all again next year.


First Time Dive 6m Deep This was my first time ever trying out scuba diving! I was worried at first but Ben couldn’t have made me feel more at ease! I knew I was safe at all times and it was an incredible experience see all the different fish etc underwater. We went 6m down for 35mins but next time I’d love to go deeper! The atmosphere in the store is great too everyone is soo friendly, this trio really made my holiday! Highly recommend!

Discovery dive, follow up dive and museum Loved it, really nice vibe, professional and funny at the same time, couldn’t have asked for more. Thanks so much!


Great dive shop right next to awesome dive spots! Great location with a great team! While diving George found us an angel shark, common atlantic stingray and seahorses. I can highly recommend the Cathedral and the Museo Atlantico!  


Reviews about guided dives in Lanzarote!

Great team, great kit, great diving! We spent a week diving with Manta Diving Lanzarote and couldn’t fault them. As newbie divers with only 4 dives under our weight belts, we were very aware of our limitations. But we were well looked after by James and Patrick and always felt safe! The kit is like brand new. The communication between us and Rachel before we went was fab. The location was excellent and the dives really good fun! We also learned a lot – every day is absolutely a school day under the water. The tips that we picked up…


5 stars. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ I’ve had the pleasure of diving here on several occasions. Everything is ran perfectly with great dive sites on the doorstep, to top notch trips to other dive sites in Lanzarote. I had a wonderful trip to La Graciosa in the north of Lanzarote for two amazing dives. An amazing day well organised on the day by Patrick. I also had a wonderful night dive with James. This is always a highlight of my trip. James is a first class guide and dive buddy. Thanks for a great trip, all at Manta Diving Lanzarote. See you later in…


Another great diving experience 😎 Another week in Lanzarote, and diving with Manta Diving Lanzarote. Great dives with James and Patrick, and nice to see Ben and Rachel. I can’t recommend these guys enough. Whether this is your 1st diving experience to experienced, they will go out of there way to accommodate you so you have a brilliant diving day. Another enjoyable trip and some lovely dives!


Scuba Diving in Lanzarote My partner and I went scuba diving with manta diving, we had such a great time!! All the staff were so helpful, friendly and kind. It was a 5/5 experience and I cannot wait to do it again. It was so lovely to see all the fish and really become a part of the aquatic nature. Would highly recommend 🙂


Diving Delight! We are returning customers to Manta Diving Lanzarote and as always it’s been a pleasure diving with the manta team. Our favourite dive was the twin pipes in Playa Blanca where we were fortunate to see a turtle, angel shark and ray – all on one dive. Yet again great memories made 🙂

Good fun well organised diving Booked 10 dives over 5 days including underwater museum. Very well organised, good equipment and well informed knowledgeable instructors. The instructors and owners, Ben and Rachel, made the whole trip enjoyable and good fun. I definitely plan to dive again with Manta Diving Lanzarote!

Nicholas M

Amazing experience! I decided to treat myself for my birthday and done the Discover Scuba Diving Gold package, which included 3 dives, including the Museo Atlantico. I had never been diving before so was a total newbie, but everyone at the centre were wonderful, and put me at ease! It was Rachel I spoke to on the phone and met at the desk, very friendly and bubbly! The first dive was in a small group of about 5 of us and we were gently eased into the water. Getting used to the breathing and hand signals etc. We managed to…


Diving with Manta Diving Lanzarote Had a brilliant time again, my second visit, very pleasant and helpful guides, really looking forward to my next visit. Well done Manta Diving Lanzarote!

Great Dive Centre Been diving with Manta for 12 years. Ben, Rachel, George & James all great. Safety always. Great Equipment. Dive Centre close to beach and good changing facilities.


Winter sun diving Dont normally do reviews but here goes – My 3rd time diving in Lanzarote with these guys. The fact I keep coming back should tell you enough. First class service from friendly and professional people. As a PADI MSTD Instructor with over 500 dives I like to think I know a little bit about what I am talking about. You cant go wrong with Ben & Rachael and their staff. 5 Star from me all day long.

New year winter sun diving break Fantastic diving experience in Lanzarote with Manta Diving. I participated in 6 dives in total. I especially enjoyed The Cathedral, Las Colaradas and the Museo Atlantico – underwater museum.  Manta Diving Lanzarote is a very well run dive centre with experienced staff and great organisation, a personal experience and very enjoyable. Special thanks to Rachel, James and George. I’m due to fly out again in early March and I am looking forward to booking a further series of dives with Manta. Great work guys!! Thank you!

Short Break Manta Diving Lanzarote is quite simply the best diving center in Lanzarote. I have been travelling to the island for a number of years. Manta Diving Staff always go out their way to ensure you have the best possible time.

Best diving on the island…! Been using Manta Diving Lanzarote for over 10 years now as my dive centre of choice on Lanzarote and I have dived with a few others. But none come close to the atmosphere created by firstly Jim and Linda of old but now even more so improved in every aspect by Ben and Rachel the new owners ( a few years now) and their dive team. Great people and great dive centre for young/ old, novice/expert divers alike. The best dive sites in Lanzarote are just 2 minutes from the dive centre. Alternatively for the…

AMAZING! Highlight of our holiday! I used Manta Diving Lanzarote twice before when I was on holiday with my family and they were amazing. They were great and did a dive that was both suitable for me and my girlfriend. All of the instructors know what they’re doing when it comes to choosing the location for the dive and on all three dives that we did we saw a massive variety of marine life.


Reviews about diving the Museo Atlantico!

Amazing dive club Absolutely love this dive team! From the second we booked any questions were answered promptly. Picked up and dropped of at our hotel. We actually took all our own kit but anyone needing equipment to hire, they had the lot. Our guides/instructors were James and Patrick, both brilliant! Had Patrick for 4 of the dives and he was very very good. Very informative. We did the Museo Atlantico on our 2nd day which was amazing. Patrick told us all about it on the way to the boat so we knew what all the statues were about under…


Decided to visit the underwater museum and we couldn’t of picked a better team. From the first contact with Rachel. To Ben and James looking after us on the day. Through the two morning dives and the amazing dive to the Museo Atlantico itself. If you are looking for a friendly professional team to dive with as a novice I couldn’t recommend them more. The three dives were perfect to go from shallow water to be able to dive the museum confidently. The team go over and above to ensure you have the best day. From taking loads of photos…


Thanks. Just had a fantastic couple of dives at the underwater museum with Patrick. Top, top man, friendly, funny and knows what he’s about. Go diving with Manta Diving Lanzarote… I promise you’ll have a great time.


Museum Atlantico We have been diving with Manta Diving Lanzarote now for a couple of years and each time the guys do not disappoint. On our last trip we did 4 dives two at Playa Chica with James blue hole & little wreck both great dives with huge groupers. We also did two dives in playa Blanca with George twin pipes and underwater museum. As soon as we dropped down on the twin pipes we saw a turtle chilling out under a ledge straight after there was a angle shark moray eel, sting rays and my best mate the trigger…


Fantastic diving with Manta Diving Lanzarote Went diving with Manta Diving Lanzarote on 23 & 24th January 2018. 1st day diving with James from the pier in Puerto del Carmen. Really pleasant way to get back into the water after 10 months. Diving to 30 metres on the reef – saw lots of sea life. 2nd day I went with George diving in Playa Blanca – about a half hours drive away from the dive centre. The first dive we went diving on 2 tectonic plates that had pushed the seabed up millions of years ago leaving lots of ledges and cliffs…


Great Dive! This was only our second open water dive since receiving our certification. Manta Diving took great care of my husband and I. Preparing our equipment for our arrival and drove us out to Playa Blanca with a few others. George, the instructor, gave us a great overview of our first dive and Museo Atlantico. Even though it was a bit chilly George made us feel quite comfortable and gave us tips each time we went diving. Being new at this sport it’s nice to receive tips from the experts. Thank you Manta Diving!!

Reviews about PADI scuba diving courses!

Thank You! I first came to Puerto Del Carmen in summer 2009. After a some enquiries with a couple of other dive centres around Puerto Del Carmen I’ve decided to dive with Manta Diving Lanzarote. My 6th dive and never looked back since. Year after year I kept coming back to Rachel & the dive team in Manta Diving. I have since completed my PADI Advance Diver, Rescue Diver, First Aid, Deep Diver. As well as clocking in my 100th dive last June and recently got proposed underwater near the Harbour Wrecks when my fiancé completed his PADI Open Water.…


PADI Diving Courses Many thanks to all at Manta Diving. After starting to learn to dive with George in March 2017 I returned to continue with PADI Buoyancy and PADI Enriched Air courses Feb 2018. I had a great few days diving with George, James and Ben. We saw almost everything didnt we! Truly professional and always fully aware of safey and attention to detail. The dive team along with Rachel have shared their gift of diving with me something I hope to enjoy for many years. I thank them for that. A good set up for sure. Have a great season.


PADI refresh I hadn’t dived in a few years and Manta Diving Lanzarote were a great choice for a refresh. Very professional so I had no worries about their approach to safety. They were very friendly so it was a really enjoyable experience. Great location so just a short walk from the shop to the beach. Would have no issues recommending them.


Second visit, absolutely loved it! We came back to Manta Diving Lanzarote to do our PADI Scuba Diver qualification, after trying the PADI Discover Scuba Divelast summer. George was a great instructor and went out of his way to put us at ease and show us interesting subsea sights! We saw angel sharks, torpedo rays, cuttlefish and so much more. Playa Chica is pretty and teeming with life. The Manta Diving Lanzarote team are very knowledgeable and enthusiastic, and couldn’t have made us feel more welcome and safe. We will definitely be back again! Henry (11) and Rob (41!)

The gold standard for diving in Lanzarote I used Manta Diving for the four open water dives to qualify for my Open Water PADI certificate. I could not have chosen better. The standard of instruction and customer relations is quite simply gold standard – unbeatable. James my instructor was understanding but firm and fair. His enthusiasm and experience is infectious. The equipment was first rate and the dive sites varied and interesting. I will be back to do the Atlantic Museum with them just as soon as I can.Thank you Manta Diving.


Excellent! We had a brilliant time doing the PADI Scuba Diver course! Our first time scuba diving. The team were fantastic. We did the course over 4 mornings rather than 2 full days and this was great for us as the course is pretty intensive. It was suggested that we do the theory before we arrived but we didn’t, and wished that we had! I personally struggled a bit with being underwater (which I didn’t expect as I’m usually okay with this kind of thing and am a good swimmer), have to say, the instructors, George and James, were great…

Manta Diving Lanzarote I did my advanced course with Manta Diving and have to say they were brilliant! It was a really enjoyable experience with them and I would recommend them to anyone!

David K

Fantastic first diving experience! Recently completing my PADI Scuba Diver course with Manta Diving and I am thoroughly impressed with the quality of instruction. As well as how friendly everyone is! The dive team quickly put me at ease even with skills I found tricky. The final day I went on three open water dives – I was only expecting two!)  This was an exciting way to finish the course! There is so much to see and extensive dive sites. So I would definitely recommend Manta Diving Lanzarote for beginners and experienced divers alike!


The best dive school on the island! Manta Diving Lanzarote is a great company and all the staff make you very welcome. Planning our dive trip, I had a number of questions and Rachel was very responsive in communication and was able to accommodate all our requests. Our instructor James taught us the PADI Advanced course. Many thanks, guiding us through the various tasks & made the course very enjoyable!
