Long Description:
Manta Point

attracts manta rays all year round, the waters are rich with plankton which at
tracts the magnificent bird of the seas for feeding;
the site also acts as a cleaning station.
Manta Point is rather bland so the only reasons
to dive this site are the manta rays - but oh are they worth it!
On some days you can see one manta, on another day you can see twenty!
They are very friendly and enjoy the company of divers, often swooping
in to investigate and shivering with excitement as the divers’
bubbles tickle their bellies.
