Start your diving career in the best possible way with an SSI course on an island far far away. Spread out over 5 days, you will study the theory and practise the skills in the water. But not just any water, by doing your course in the Yasawas you have chosen paradise in the pacific, above and below the surface.
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.
Located in the Fiji Islands premier destination, the Yasawa Islands, Mantaray Island Resort sums up the perfect Fijian holiday. Boasting idyllic white sand tropical beaches, vibrant coral reefs, a marine reserve teeming with life, fantastic cuisine, refreshing cocktails, chilled out tunes and a close affiliation with the local village, this island offers the complete Fiji Experience.
The SSI 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 3 to 4 days depending on the students enrolled.
The SSI Open Water Diver course is one of the most popular diving certificate worldwide. After completing this 3-4 day course you are certified to dive to 18 m independently with a buddy.
