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.

Sea Serpent - we had a very close encounter with this banded sea krait - it was not afraid of us as it searched for a meal. Such a great moment - and grateful to get a shot as he swam past. Cropped and brightened with photoshop.
