I visited Sal for a week with my dad. I am an advanced open water diver and my dad has never dived before. I contacted Manta via Facebook before flying out to Sal to enquire about dives for myself and a try dive for my dad. They collected us from our hotel and brought us to the dive centre (now based at Villa Verde). My dad had some theory before doing skills in the pool. He was with a couple doing their open water diver, so he got a lot of information and was very impressed with the teaching and skills taught. After the pool skills, we went out to a shallow dive site, just Dudu, my dad and myself. We had a good dive and saw lots of fish, visibility was about 15m. I had mentioned that my dad would like to do a wreck dive, so the next day we went out again to do a wreck at about 9-12m. Dudu was great with my dad and he had a really good experience. Dad used up his air pretty quickly, so Dudu went up with him and I stayed down with Mariana to explore the inside of the wreck. I had my own kit, but left my weight pockets at the dive centre by accident - they kindly let me know and dropped them off at my hotel for me. Overall, we had a great experience with Manta - I wish I could have done more diving with them, but at least I have an excuse to go back and explore the other wrecks they have. Thanks guys!
