The SSI Manta and Ray Ecology Course is designed to help you learn more about these unique fish. The course is one of the SSI Ecology Speciality programmes designed to help you understand and connect with the underwater world.
During the course you will discover what makes a ray a ray, distinguish how they differ from sharks, look at their chosen habitats, eating habits and how to tell them apart. We include unique sections with an in depth focus on the rays and skates you can see along the south coast of the UK. We look at the ICUN status and conservation programmes you can be involved with.
Certified Snorkel Divers and Open Water Divers have the option to add an additional open water session. A ray sighting is not guaranteed but we will take you on on the boat and show you where they like to live! Please just ask for costs and details.
What is included?
We want you to get the most from your learning experience, so we keep our classes small. If you prefer, we do offer a 1:1 option on all our training courses, just ask for pricing and dates.
SSI offer a range of Ecology programmes to help you further your understanding of our oceans and their inhabitants including, Marine Ecology, Coral Identification, Fish Identification, Marine Mammal Ecology, Sea Turtle Ecology and Shark Ecology. If want to complete multiple Ecology Courses ask for details of our Ecology Course Bundle.
Remember to check out the free Blue Oceans material on your SSI app or MySSI profile and join us on events to help protect our seas. Consider adding an Open Water session with your Instructor to see theory in practice.
