We were underwater at about 45ft. at a cleaning station waiting for what seemed forever. Then after 40 minutes out of the blue comes this huge Manta flying gracefully overhead. This was the first Manta we had ever seen and Wow! what a beauty.

This shot was taken by my wife with Canon PowerShot A610 while I was shooting manta (she happened to be an excellent model). It was that 'once in a lifetime' moment - just us and the manta who stayed and played with us for the whole dive.
