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!
