Just finished my advanced open water diving course with Fast Manta. Must say they’re one of the most humble and dedicated crew I’ve been around. Their way of teaching skills involve a lot of empathy which makes them stand out in the crowd of many other dive schools out there. I highly recommend them and encourage you to book your next course/ recreational dives with them if you are here in Krabi <3 I am definitely coming back!

We hebben afgelopen 2 dagen 6 duiken gemaakt en onze Padi advanced open water certificaat gehaald! Het personeel is super gepassioneerd over hun werk, het duiken en de onder water wereld. Ook op de boot is de sfeer relaxed en gezellig! Als leerling hebben ik geen stress ervaren tijdens de voorbereidingen en de duiken. Kajsa, onze instructeur was heel geduldig en behulpzaam en liet ons eerst zelf uitzoeken en haakte in als er dingen nog niet zo goed gingen. We hadden mooie dagen, soms was het water wat troebel maar dat maakte de ervaring zelf niet minder. Een tip voor de adventure duiken, als je van te voren al de theorie leest dan heb je denk ik meer kans om die ook uit te voeren. Dit was geen verplichting, maar maakte wel dat we sommige niet konden kiezen.

I did my first fun dives with Fast Manta after getting my OW certification. I was a bit nervous before we started but the whole experience was amazing. Our instructor was Carlotta, who was very nice, funny and professional. There were a few of us doing diving for the first time after the OW course and it was nice doing it along other “baby divers” . 😄 Also the whole team was amazing, they explained everything so well, you really felt that you are in capable hands. The whole experience was very positive and if I am ever back I am joining them again.

I went diving with the Fast Manta crew on World Ocean Day in an effort to clean up debris from the local islands near Ao Nang, Krabi. I was quite impressed with the professionalism and organization from the staff and crew aboard the boat. Everything about the day was explained clearly in the briefing. All of the equipment was set up beforehand, so there was little interfering with our enjoyment of the journey out to the islands. Our dive instructor, Robin, showed both confidence and good leadership before, during, and after each dive. She was thorough in her pre-dive briefings and checking to make sure we were ready. Even though visibility wasn't the greatest underwater that day, it was a good experience overall. There was an abundance of fresh fruit and snacks, in addition to a lunch provided for the guests. The seating areas were comfortable and gave us the chance to have conversations between the divers and snorkelers. I give a well-deserved five stars to Fast Manta!

My husband and I had an amazing time participating in the World Ocean Day clean up with the incredible team at Fast Manta and other volunteers. The team members possess impressive expertise and demonstrate genuine concern and reverence for the ocean ecosystem. I enthusiastically recommend Fast Manta without reservation.

Fast Manta is such an incredible diving company! I traveled to Krabi with GIVE Volunteers and I'm so glad that they work with Fast Manta. Si was my Open Water Diver instructor and he put in so much time and effort into making sure I'm a capable and confident diver. All of the staff were so friendly and supportive and made the boat a great place to spend time on throughout the day. Also, the meals were delicious! I'm impressed with the partnerships Fast Manta has and I was grateful to get experience with snorkeling with sharks as well as diving to identify coral health and re-plug fractured pieces. I would love to get my Advanced Certification one day and I'm considering going back to Krabi when I'm ready!

I had a wonderful time today joining Fast Manta on its Ocean Clean Up Day in the Andaman Sea. Kari Lehtonen and his team are so professional and caring about the ocean and their guests that you can't help but feel safe and enjoy the experience. Whether you're an experienced diver, a beginner, or a snorkeler, you will be well looked after. I cannot recommend Fast Manta enough! Be sure to check them out if want an amazing Andaman Sea dive experience!
