We did a great deal of research about dive centers on Skiathos Island, and Manthos & Dolphin Diving are the only real, multi-agency accredited dive school and center on Skiathos. Manthos has been operating for over 25 years, and his knowledge of over 17 dive sites around this tiny 7-mile island reflects that commitment and passion. He assesses every diver's skill based on your logged dives and confidence, not just your achieved card level: for example, we know for a fact that if one requests an Advanced Open Water course having logged fewer than 20 dives, Manthos will refuse you! He took us two eager-yet-rusty divers and gave us an excellent Refresher and subsequent dives, seeking out eel, octopus, big grouper, and special coral to show us all that diving can offer. After a couple of frightening "cattle-boat" dives in the Caribbean, I wasn't sure that diving was worth the effort; two days with Manthos changed my mind! We dived with someone who has logged over 2000 dives, including 2 weeks' worth every year for over 16 years *with Manthos alone* (that is, in addition to dives elsewhere in the world), and after just two casual holiday dives this trip, we fully know why. Efcharisto, Manthos & Dolphin Diving!
