Hear from students that have wanted to learn diving from scratch and those that have wanted to improve their diving. These students wanted to access new enviroments to be able to dive all around the world in all kinds of conditions while keeping themselves, their buddies, and their enviroments safe.


Did my wreck course with Urban Manta. Sandra is safe, experienced and knowledgeable. She is organized and has great advice and techniques.

Intro to wreck course

I felt very safe diving with Sandra. Class was fun, professional and I would recommend Urban Manta to everyone! She explained gear assembly to me as many times as I needed it.

Opean water course

She is truly a professional and pays attention to detail and safety, making sure I retained all the necessary information. I’m not the most comfortable person underwater but felt at ease with her. Highly recommended!
