Theses wings range from 4-20ft, making them amongst the largest sea creatures anywhere. Manta's are one of the most fascinating and stunningly beautiful sights.

Manta Rays have NO stinger and are completely safe to be around. We invite you to experience the thrill of a lifetime...a snorkel with these angels of the Ocean.

The slope features cliffs, terraces and caves which makes quite exciting. As you go down deeper the changes in the coral and other marine flora is conspicuously visible.
