Reviews of the SSI scuba diver course
Did a Scuba Diver course with Manta Diving Lanzarote and the service was excellent, the instructors were great. I would highly recommend it.
What a truly awesome experience! Exceeded all my expectations. I have just completed my Scuba Diver course. My instructor had the patience that gave me confidence to succeed in all tasks however long they took. From my online e-learning package to my course instruction everything was organised to perfection. I can not praise the staff enough. Brilliant experience, highly recommended, 5 stars.
