I’m reposting this popular photo and adding a few more. The Bali Manta was my most popular blog entry this week.
Scuba diving doesn’t get any better than this.
This is a photo of me taking a photo of a Manta Ray at a ‘cleaning station’ (their’s – not mine) in east Bali.
The mantas swam on the surface – above us – for about 20 minutes.
There were snorkelers in the area as well. So, if you ever get to Bali, see if you can book a snorkelling trip to see the mantas.
A lot of attention is paid to ensuring the mantas aren’t bugged by the tourists who’ve come to see them. Boats are kept far back, necessitating a bit of a swim to the small bay. Worth it.
