Did a Scuba Diver course with Manta Diving Lanzarote and the service was excellent, the instructors were great. I would highly recommend it.

What a truly awesome experience! Exceeded all my expectations. I have just completed my Scuba Diver course. My instructor had the patience that gave me confidence to succeed in all tasks however long they took. From my online e-learning package to my course instruction everything was organised to perfection. I can not praise the staff enough. Brilliant experience, highly recommended, 5 stars.


Frequently Asked Questions about the SSI Scuba Diver Course

Yes, of our scuba diver course includes the SSI digital student materials, so you can complete all the theory online before you arrive in Lanzarote. Saving you half a day in the classroom! Completing this option means when you arrive in Lanzarote you can jump straight underwater. 

Confined Dives: We complete 3 confined water dives in the shallow water of Playa Chica bay. During these dives you will learn a series of diving skills such as clearing water from your mask, buoyancy control & recovering your regulator. You also practice some emergency skills, like sharing air (just in case). By the time we’re done, you’re ready to hit the ocean with a splash!
Open Water Dives: After your confined water fun, you will make 3 open water dives (Note: the course only requires 2 open water dives, we throw in 1 more dive for free!) When we say “open water”, we mean the beautiful blue ocean! You start shallow and gradually go deeper. The maximum depth in the course is 12 meters. Now you can experience real underwater adventures! We explore some of the amazing dive sites from Playa Chica.

Yes! As scuba divers we wear fins and a BCD (a jacket which you can fill with air), so there’s not much need for regular swimming. There is however a swimming test to make sure you are happy in the water. You need to be able to float/tread water for 10 minutes. In general you should be comfortable in the water and you should be fit and healthy with no medical issues.

It is recommended by SSI to wait at least 24 hours after your last dive before flying.
