Info : Swim with manta rays
Many of the resorts can organise snorkelling or diving with manta rays during your stay. These magnifiscent creatures don't so much as swim but glide through the water like majestic birds. Their eyes are a beautiful dark black, as large as a golfball and the are very gentle, having the biggest brain of all fish.
Unlike stingrays, mantas do not have a venomous spine on the back of their tales and seem to rather enjoy human company. They have been reported even to do loop-the-loops through the water around bubbles gliding up from divers underneathe.
Manta rays swim usually in groups making the experience of swimming with them all the more impressive. Looking up at them from underneath, it can look like dark planes in an aerial procession. The creatures often come near coral reefs for a clean by smaller fish that remove dead skin and parasites. Whilst Experience Travel Group are not diving experts, we can try to tailor resorts with expert diving fascilities and manta swimming trips into your itinerary.
