Manta and Ray Ecology

Min. Age


Pool Sessions


No. of Dives


In this programme you will learn all about rays – how they are different from sharks, their habitat, diet and how to identify the common species.

Pool and open water sessions are not required but the course includes a detailed academic session, where we will ensure you are comfortable with the information covered in the course.

This course is part of a series of ecology specialties and are suitable for divers and non-divers, who wish to learn more about the world’s fascinating aquatic realm. The course can be delivered online, in-person and also combined with real open water experiences for qualified divers. This makes it an excellent choice for children and families, as well as being a great addition to a trip.
