Manthos, with help from his Terrier "Scuba" gives great, safe, good value diving. You can do anyhting from try a dive, courses but there is also something for experienced divers (I have over 200). The other dive schools in Skiathos are more interested in try dives, often from the shore. Manthos has a good, well maintained hard boat which is... More

This was my second dive with Manthos. I am a very novice open water qualified diver and this was my first dive since I last went diving with Dolphin a year ago. As I say I am a novice diver with only 8 dives on my log. Others on the trip were seasoned divers with thousands of dives under their... More

Have dived with Manthos for many years, the boat is an excellent craft to dive from, he is very experienced and always makes you feel safe, the diving equipment is the best quality and 100% reliable. Months knows all the best dive sites on the island. Looking forward to next years adventures.

Months is a really nice guy who is extremely helpful and courteous. Diving equipment is of excellent quality and fabulously maintained. He will give you tips which we don't get in this Country on how to set up your kit. He is very professional and will give you a detailed dive briefing and safety rules etc. I can't recommend him...

After last years fantastic Junior Open Water PADI Qualification, I returned to gain more experience in the water. Fantastic dives, lots of marine life and brilliant experiences.

Finding Manthos is the best thing you will ever do for your snorkelling and diving ambitions. Excellent professional tuition and advice. Great for try dives and PADI courses. None divers can snorkel from the boat in fantastic locations around Skiathos. More advanced divers can enjoy night and wreck dives.

Skiathos is a beutiful island, the right size to give you anithing you want at an arm length, also amazing dive spots. That's given by the nature, Manthos makes the rest, 28 years of experience in the area, he is naturally able to make you feel relaxed and to let you just "enjoy the dive, nice and easy". If you...
