Famous for the Manta Rays it is named after this is a dive you will never forget, there are three cleaning stations which the Mantas circle around. Positioning yourself well and remaining still you can get these amazing creatures to float right over you, please be responsible do not reach out to touch!

The reef has a huge overhang where a Potato Bass is resident, while Red Fang Trigger Fish, Yellow Snappers, Bigeyes, Fusiliers and Trumpet fish are to be found all over the reef. Cleaner Wrasse of course are in abundance doing their job and occasionally a Devil Ray meanders in to see what is going on.

Often this is a negative entry dive.

I loved this dive seeing those amazing graceful creatures is a sight you will never forget.
