Can't really compare with other companies as I only used Kona Diving this trip, but there snorkel manta dive was very well like by the members of my group that did the snorkelling, rather than the diving.

The minimum age for diving is 10 years old, but even that is at the discretion of the instructor as 10 year olds can vary wildly in maturity. Diving is safe when done responsibly, but it is still primarily an adult activity.
