צללנו בכמה מקומות בעולם וללא ספק זה המועדון הכי טוב שצללנו איתו! סירה חדשה ומאובזרת ולא מעץ, מדריכים מעולים דוברי אנגלית, ציוד חדש ואווירה של צלילת VIP! על הסירה היה כיבוד קל ושתייה, לאחר הצלילות ארוחת צהריים טעימה. ללא ספק מקצוענים, נהנו מאוד בצלילה איתם, ממליצים בחום!

Our two teens got their PADI open water diving certificates last week with Fast Manta and I was truly blown away by the experience. It’s a little nerve wracking having your kids take on such a challenge but from the first communication with this dive shop, I knew we were in good hands. Tero answered all of our questions leading up to the dive lessons, sending encouragement and explaining the how and why of things. Robin and Kajsa worked with them on the actual diving portion and truly I could not have asked for better instructors. Both were wonderful but Kajsa (who worked with them in the open water) was an absolute gem. Not only was it apparent immediately that she was a wealth of diving knowledge, but the way she connected with our kids was truly remarkable. She was patient, meeting them exactly where they were at to ensure they understood everything, every step of the way. She gave them her undivided attention at all times on the boat, assuring that they fully understood everything and giving them clear feedback after each dive. Kajsa is truly the kind of person you want in charge of your children in any sort of high stress situation and I cannot thank our lucky stars enough that she was assigned to them for this course. They had an absolute blast learning this new skill and were so proud of themselves at the end. As a parent and passenger, it was so cool to see how their confidence just blossomed under Kajsa’s guidance. Thank you Fast Manta for this epic experience and for the whole team who was just so fun and so capable! Cannot recommend this shot highly enough for your diving needs while in Krabi!

Really good diving experience, safe and relaxing. Equipment was in very good condition, no issues there, food served was pretty delicious. We dived around phi phi islands at Bida Nok and Hin Bida dive sites, which are well known for rich coral structures and abundancy of sea life. We even spotted a couple of leopard sharks. In overall I would recommend Fast Manta if somebody is seeking some fun diving in Ao Nang. Special thanks for Si, our dive guide who was looking after us, he ensured our safety and equipment setup and was pointing out those funny little shrimps :).

High quality, new and well maintained equipment. Professional dive masters. Marvin was very knowledgeable in the dive sites and fishes. He was patient in answering our questions. One minor thing that could be improved is lunch - meat on both days were quite tough and dry

I was super impressed with Fast Manta! Not only was the experience seamless, logistically, they take care of you and are super professional. Our dive guide, Andy, was one of the best dive masters I have ever had. He was an expert at finding the wildlife, even if it was almost completely camouflage. He spotted an octopus that I would have casually swam right over as it blended in. Every detail from changing the tanks from dive to dive and loading the weight belts was taken care of. I cannot recommend Fast Manta enough! Thanks for a wonderful experience :) 100% worth every penny!

There may be cheaper dives but there surely isn’t better dives with a more caring and enjoyable crew. Top notch experience. Wouldn’t dive with any other company for any of the Krabi area dives.

Muzu jen doporucit, profesionalni pristup pri planovani potapecskeho vyletu, pomoc i v jinych oblastech, nakupy, jidlo atd. Den potapeni - vse na cas a dobre zorganizovane, lod a posadka super, v cene mala snidane, soft drinks, voda, ovoce, obed. Dive master jmenem "Si" a jeho tym velmi mili a profesionalni, rozdeleni dle stupne licenci do malych skupin. Ponory naplanovane dle aktualnich podminek, vyborne vedene. Celou dobu na lodi jsme si povidali o potapeni a Thajsku obecne. Dle internetoveho (pouze internetoveho) pruzkumu trochu drazsi, ale stoji to za to.
