Deposit: £75

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 you can see along the south coast of the UK. 

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?

    • Digital Manual
    • Online Certification card on completion
    • Online Mulberry Recognition for study of UK rays
    • Instructor time

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.

SSI offer a range of Ecology programmes to help you further your understanding of our oceans and their inhabitants including, Marine EcologyCoral IdentificationFish IdentificationSea Turtle Ecology and Shark Ecology. If want to complete multiple Ecology Courses ask for details of our Ecology Course Bundle.
