I enjoyed P E R F E C T 10days of diving with Manta Rhei, and really appreciate all of it.
The day boat, really big, clean and comfortable.
everybody has enough personal space even the day of fully booked
The Dive Instructors and Masters are competent, professional and extremely knowledgeable.
They were planning the dives according to customer wishes and suggestions.
sometimes they even plunged into the water to check the current before our dive.
Also all the boat crew was so friendly, nice,
very very helpful.
On this trip, I met the Adrenaline pumping current, happy manta, ladybugs town, stunning fishes and even swimming with the dolphin in the water!!
Thank you Alex, Echo, you guys are the Best!
Also thank you all so much, you made my time on Komodo unforgettable.
Manta Rhei in Labuan Bajo was ace. I took my Open Water Course here and the value for money, quality of instruction, equipment, atmosphere and diving was incredible. Really. So pleased to choose this family run company rather than on of the larger companies in Labuan Bajo. I luckily got a 1-2-1 experience taking this course and Lolita was a fantastic teacher: fun, careful, and responsive to me as a student.
And the diving! Unreal. We were again super lucky and caught 7-8 manta at Manta Point, dozens of turtles, sharks, moray, incredible coral gardens, clouds of fish and I was able to do a fun muck dive having completed my course for half price.
While I was lucky with some of the dives (Manta Point doesn’t always have THAT many manta), I was stoked to have been with Manta Rhei. Huge thanks and big recommend.
My friend and I were very on the fence about diving (terrified!) but the prices drew us in to at least have a conversation with Vero about what a day out on a discovery dive would look like. This option is designed for those who want to give diving a try but aren’t certified or necessarily looking to be certified just yet. First of all, Vero is wonderful, she was very honest and upfront with us and patiently answered every single concern or preoccupation we had. Incredible service!
On the day of, we went down with a guide (ours was Alex, who was very direct and confident which we appreciated!) for two dives during the day and snorkel at a third location where the current is strong enough that only certified divers should go down. It was one of the most incredible days of my life! They took us to amazing spots where we saw reef sharks, 4 types of rays, puffer fish, eels, and so much more.
If you’re convinced by now to give diving itself a try, I would definitely recommend Manta Rhei specifically. As I mentioned, the staff and guides are wonderful and professional. Beyond that, the boat is beautiful with lots of comfortable seating areas, and we were basically given a buffet of delicious food throughout the day. Unlimited coffee, tea, ginger for seasickness, Belgian waffles, egg sandwiches, and lots of little snacks between.
I can’t recommend them enough!
1 ⭐️ Amazing Guide - Rifan spots nudi’s from a mile away. (All guides received top of the notch DM training)
2 ⭐️ Amazing crew is always ready to assist when needed. (Putting on fins on a boat never has been that easy!)
3 ⭐️ Beenie Bags!!!
4 ⭐️ Variety of snacks and food before and after dives (freshly baked waffles and cake)
5 ⭐️ Because all is about passion for diving and trying to be a benchmark dive centre day in & out.
Keep up the good work!
The dive center is very professional, friendly and helpful. The boat that we were on for a liveaboard of 4 days was spacious with a great and helpful crew who served delicious meals and snacks. The dive instructor/guide was the best I ever experienced. So competent, friendly and professional. Thank you ALEX for making this trip unforgetable !!!! The twin cabin was cosy, clean and had everything we needed with a hot shower to get warm again after a fabulous dive.I certainly will come back again!
