My husband and I have travelled to Gili Air several times and always wanted to dive. This time we decided to take the plunge. We signed up for the open water course and were set! Our instructor was Dani and he is an absolute legend. He's extremely proficient and patient, and even when I struggled with some of the harder... More

We cannot speak highly enough about Manta Dive. My husband and I went to get our SSI open water dive certification and it was an incredible experience. Our instructor, Kimmo, was patient, kind, knowledgable and made me feel very safe throughout the whole process. You can really tell he has a great passion for diving and teaching others to dive....

I took my daughter to the island to get her Open Water License. She finished the course in 3 days. All required materials were taught and practiced so I have confidence that she is now a capable and safe Open Water diver. Great Instructors. Very friendly staffs. High quality equipments were provided. The dive boat was very spacious. Felt safe,... More

We spent a fair bit of time trying to find a diving school on Gili Air that we felt comfortable going with but we went with Manta because their staff were immediately welcoming when I approached their office and straight away sat down with me for a chat trying hard to understand my specific needs. I am a qualified and... More

We had the pleasure of diving with manta for a total of 4 days. Great equipment, easy and hasslefree signup day to day. Dives with Angga, Maul and Esther, all great DM's. Prices are fixed on gili air, but if you email ahead you will get a discount.

If you're looking to do your SSI Advanced Adventure course then Manta is a great place to do it. Bastian instructed me and again later for my Nitrox course, he was very understanding and was able to help me with my buoyancy, air consumption and other skills. He was also able to point out loads of marine life and he... More

If you go for a dive trip you get what you need at this place. Not much more to say, just do it. We saw a lot of turtles and rare fish and squids.

Now that i have dived in Galapagos and Mauritius, i absolutely appreciate the instructor Emma for her patience, commitment and skills. She made my underwater experience calm, smooth, pleasant and most of all i felt safe. She went... More

I did a fun dive to 18m, with 20m visibility at a sight very close to Gili Air. It was an afternoon dive. Compared to what you might see if you were snorkelling, it was a bit better. Lots of the coral is old, broken and white with a decent range of fish. But, the diving experience was great. I... More
