Advanced & Rescue Courses


*Gear Requirements for all courses: Students are required to own their basic personal gear which consists of a scuba mask, snorkel, fins & booties for the pool.  Urban Manta has a full stock of gear available for purchase and can fit you for the correct sizes. Wetsuits can either be rented or bought. BCs, regs, computers & drysuits can be rented. Prices are found on the gear page.

Advanced Adventure Diver

$600 + SDI eLearning

This is an introductory course to 5 specialties including Deep and Navigation and 3 more of your choice. This class is geared towards shallow water resort divers and is not a true Advanced cert. One dive from each specialty applies towards a complete certification in that specialty. Please note you must take a specialty class in each area to earn the full specialty card.  Cost is $600 for 5 dives and does not include any specialty certifications.  This is equivalent to the PADI version of the advanced class.  It is a good class for those not sure where they want to go with their diving but want to improve beyond Open Water in terms of skill & buoyancy. I would recommend doing a one day Kicking Techniques class or a Drysuit class in leui of this cert.

This course is a great bridge for Open Water divers but will certify you to 100ft, not the recreational limits of 130ft (Deep Diving specialty is required to go beyond 100ft).

Advanced Open Water Diver

Truly and advanced diver course. It takes a good 15-20 dives to become comfortable in the water. 25 dives & 4 specialties are required. One of the specialties can be non-diving such as Nitrox (highly recommended) or gear specialist.  Most specialties cost $300.  Gear rental not included (please see rental prices on gear rental page).

Divemaster Course
