We went snorkelling to see the Manta Rays near our anchorage. The kids were quick to point out that the coral seemed dead and the were very few fish. I guess we are spoiled after the Tuamotus.
We did find one big Manta Ray gliding around about 20 to 30 feet down. His wingspan is about six feet across. They are very gracefull.
I free dove down to take a few pictures and some video. Posting video will need to wait until we reach New Zealand but some photos are below:
Manta Ray about 30' down
