My boyfriend and I sent an email to Manta Point about diving Richelieu Rock. Mike was very helpful, not only with dive information but also suggested accommodation and tours. We didn't have time in our itinerary to do a live aboard so we opted for a single day Richelieu dive. We miscommunicated about the need to arrive a day early... More

We were not staying in Ao.Nang but approximately 20 minutes drive away and had done our research in advance prior to leaving Britain. With so many dive centres in Ao Nang, it could be confusing knowing which one to use but after our research, it was apparent that Manta Point were genuinely PADI approved, but be careful as not all...

We all found the experience thoroughly enjoyable. Thanks to you all. Some people have commented about the long boat journeys to the likes of Phi Phi and to be honest they... More

4 of us went during the low season. Keith the owner was apparently faced with plenty of problems. All his staff resigned on the day when we were supposed to dive(bad telltale sign), dive trip out was horrible we were out an hour late due to him being shorthanded. We booked for 5 dives in total, 3 on the first... More

At first it seemed professional, but as the week of diving went on it became clear that Keith only cared about money. He also spent the whole time on the boat telling us how much better his shop was than other dive shops in Krabi. The quality of the dives was low. I am an advanced diver but had to... More

My wife and I were looking to get our PADI open water certificates while in Krabi on vacation for a week. We researched a couple of businesses online in the Ao Nang areas. Manta Point seemed to offer the best package deal. We were staying in the Sheraton, about 15 min away, but were picked up each morning, always right... More

We were staying at the Nakamanda Hotel who recommended Manta Point Divers to us. We usually always go with the recommendation of the hotel and this certainly was the right decision – what a great outfit. My husband and I were collected personally by the owner, Keith.

We had a great time diving with Manta point. They have great customer service, and made us feel very comfortable. We ended up diving 3 days (2 in Phi Phi and 1 super day dive).
