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.

At first sight I thought this small creature is riding on a stick for easy travelling, I noticed later that it is not a stick, but an extension of its body. I couldn't find its name. Please share with us if you know!
