“Manta Scuba Cabo San Lucas, They Rocks!”
Reviewed 1 August 2014

Manta Scuba is a PADI 5 Star Dive Center, personnel is truly professional and extremely friendly, you can notice it on every detail. I used my own equipment but I realized that they use a very well known brand for rent, shop is perfectly clean and well organized. Safety is priority for them. They take a few divers in every expedition, being responsible for nature environment and safety (again). Manta has been always clear on what they offer and how much you have to pay for it. Dive shop is within Cabo Marina, close to hotels and restaurants. Try it once like me and you will back again.

“Advanced Scuba Certification and fun dives.”
Reviewed 30 July 2014

Once again, I've returned to Manta, this time for advanced certification. A year later everything I liked is still the same. Kiki and other staff are still there. Equipment is in great shape, Boats are clean, easy access and not overcrowded. On one day they got slammed and took out three boats rather than crowd everybody in. Captains Sumo and Jaimie got the extra mile to be sure personal belongings like glasses and cell phones are safe and dry. Sam Handley, my instructor was patient, thorough and professional. 800 number to call from the states and online payment made it easy to book in advance. Water in the 80s for the night and deep dives didn't hurt either. But the promised whale shark was a bit shy. She did make an appearance the day before. My husband was recovering from back troubles and they went out of their way to make sure he had a successful and comfortable dive.

“Best Dive Shop!!!”
Reviewed 28 July 2014

I have never had the urge to review a place before this. I literally created an account just to share my experience with these guys. Of all the dive shops I have been diving with, Manta Scuba is BY FAR my favorite. The entire staff is amazing. My husband and I dove with them for a week, and got a chance to meet and dive with pretty much the whole staff. They were all great. What I loved the most is that they really care about the amazing wildlife they were bringing us to see. It seemed like they were having as much fun as we were. They all worked so hard to assure we had a great experience, and that every one of their guests was catered to, no matter what their interests. While all the divemasters were wonderful, I have to say Sam is one of the best underwater communicators I have ever been diving with. He can practically carry out full conversations with people he just met a couple minutes ago…underwater!!! Truly amazing. He also went at a great pace, not too fast, not to slow, and made sure photographers got the shot they were looking aiming for, while keeping the rest of the group completely happy and safe. On our last day of diving, the whole shop staff came out and said goodbye to us. Would not even consider another dive shop when we go back.

Hello Meaghan,

Thank you for your wonderful review. We are honored that we were able to exceed your expectations and you had such great experience.

Our guides definitely love diving here at the sea of cortez due to the wide variety and quantity of marine life. We treat our divers as we would like to be treated, therefor we dive in small groups in order to make sure everyone gets personal attention and is catered for her/his personal interest (it is sometimes also a matter of luck if the ocean cooperates with us ).

We are very happy to know that your experience was so good that you decided to open a TripAdvisor account to write about it. We really appreciate that you decided to take the time to do so. We believe that TripAdvisor is a great platform for travelers to share their experience in order to help others decide which operators to go to. We hope that you will find the platform useful and write more reviews to share with fellow travelers.

We will lok forward to dive with you again soon.

Happy diving,
Hagai and the Manta team

“Manta Scuba #1!!!”
Reviewed 26 July 2014

My boyfriend and I visited Manta Scuba for our first ever scuba dive and it was far more enjoyable than I had ever imagined! I was very nervous and was definitely out of my comfort zone trying out scuba diving for the first time but I thoroughly trusted our dive instructor, Ryan. Every single person working for Manta Scuba truly cares about your safety and your scuba diving experience. It was the best feeling in the world to have that support and guidance from every one! My brother and his 3 additional friends will be visiting Cabo San Lucas in August and they will be diving with Manta Scuba after I had told him about how wonderful the experience was. Additionally, my boyfriend and I will be returning to Cabo San Lucas in November to dive with Manta Scuba again for an adventure over to La Paz for the whale sharks and sea lions scuba diving combo! Pick Manta Scuba! They are #1!
