Take your diving to the next level with the Advanced Course. The Advanced Course is the next course after the Open Water course. Through 5 different dives you will gather experience on areas like underwater navigation, boyancy control and depth with the mandatory deep dive to 30m. You can do your Advanced Course all over the world, but you have to look long to find such an inspiring place as Manta Ray Island resort.
As many as thirteen manta rays have been recorded in front of the resort at one time. Daily snorkeling trips allow visitors to experience these magnificent creatures up close as they glide majestically through the nutrient rich channel just around the corner. This strait can't be dived, but the reefs just outside sports over 25 dive sites, and they certainly can. In these Pacific waters you will find sublime visibility and an extremely colorful marine life hanging out on healthy reefs. The house reef just in front of the beach is a perfect example of the wealth in this area.
The SSI Advanced Open Water Course is performance based. That means you have to understand and pass the theory and perform the in-water skills correctly and with ease. Therefore, the itinerary can vary slightly from course to course. The course will take 2 to 3 days depending on the students enrolled. 5 dives will be spread out on the available days. No more than 3 training dives will be conducted each day.

The Resort is an environmentally friendly resort, from the toilet systems to the reef awareness programs. It simply ensures that you can come back to Mantaray Island over and over again and experience the same incredible atmosphere. You can book with or without accommodation at this destination. Please double check your voucher upon confirmation.
The Yasawas is a long group of islands, all of them very different from each other. Therefore many travelers prefer to explore/experience several of these on a single trip. One clever company has provided an extended boat schedule service to take the so-called "island hoppers" back and forth between the islands. Each and every day you can catch a ferry and "jump" one, two or several islands North or South.
Can be purchased as a package on site.
If you want a longer itinerary, you can add extra days of diving and accommodation upon booking.
