“Fantastic fun dives”
Reviewed 16 July 2014

We chose to do a total of 8 fun dives with Manta Dive as they were friendly, approachable and were passionate about discovering what the Gili Islands have to offer below the surface!
We dived with Martin and Suz, who were both great. In particular, Suz's energy and passion was infectious!
The pre-dive briefings were taken seriously, with an emphasis on safety, and were thorough in terms of explaining the dive site and potential sightings.
The dive boat was quick and took us to the sites within 10-25 minutes.
The only thing that could be improved is the provision of water on the boat. The only water available was a large tank with only 1 cup - it appeared to have sat on the boat unchanged for a few days. After a dive it would be nice to have fresh water available to all divers.

“Great experience”
Reviewed 14 July 2014

My friend and I visited the Gilis on a bit of a spontaneous holiday and were recommended by friends to complete our open water course. Initially we were a bit concerned we'd jumped into something we weren't too sure about too quickly, but our instructor Sam was awesome and made us feel really comfortable in the water straight away. All our initial fears were lifted as soon as we got out into the water and made our first dive. Getting our license is one of the best things we've ever done. We even started on our advanced course over in Gili T because we loved it that much! Thanks Sam for surviving three days with the 'special' students.
