Dive Lanzarote | Come scuba diving with Manta Diving Lanzarote

10 years ago today... Rachel passed her PADI Instructor’s Exam!

Rachel passed her PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor Exam in Tenerife!

Wow! I can’t believe it’s been a decade since being given the keys to teaching scuba diving. This time 10 years ago I was celebrating passing my PADI open water scuba instructor exam! Thanks to my examiner Micky and of course Simone, my course director, my mentor and friend!

I won’t say how old I am now but back then as a excitable 19 year old newly qualified diving instructor I was keen to start teaching PADI courses and introducing people to life under the water working in the beautiful waters of the Atlantic in the Canary Island of Lanzarote where I now call home!

My diving career began

As soon as I could I started gaining experience teaching. Teaching people to dive is the most amazing feeling! The look on my students faces when they came out of the water on their final dive or when they saw their first angel shark. Simply incredible!  Just 3 years later Ben and I decided to go full circle and buy our own 5 star PADI dive centre here in Lanzarote. We teach most PADI courses. Lanzarote has safe, relaxing family vibe and divers easily see why I fell in love with the waters of Lanzarote!

Even now as a PADI Staff Instructor and several thousand dives under my wetsuit my passion for people and diving is still as intense as ever, maybe even more so!

 

Recent years

Thanks to Jason deCaires Taylor we now have our newest dive site – a superb underwater museum in Playa Blanca. The first in Europe! With its sheer abundance of fish life including angel sharks, barracuda, triggerfish and morays to name but a few! With over 300 sculptures to swim through not only is it unique it’s become one of our most popular dive sites. It has attracted many divers to Lanzarote. Also lots of people have taken up diving to dive it. Which for me is the best thing ever. I want to see as many people learning to dive. Share the amazing underwater world that I have been diving into since I was just 13.

Well done to our dive team!

Today I received the best present thanks to the efforts of all of our incredible dive team. We found out that we have won the award for best dive centre at the Museo Atlantico for the second time in a row! The award has only been run twice so far. Well done guys, I’m so proud! Thank you to all our divers who took the time to review us to help us win!
