Really great experience with the folks at Manta Dive Shop. Paco gave great lessons and was very patient with my wife. Then he and Sumo gave us a great tour and the dive was amazing. Snorkeling has nothing on being down 30-40' and seeing things up close. Saw lots of fish, and the colors were amazing.
Ben, our dive instructor, was friendly, knowledgeable and put us completely at ease. He made sure we understood the physics of diving and safety was his utmost concern. This was our 12 year old son's first dive and it was a truly amazing experience.
