Swimming With the Giants

Manta Season is in high gear on our side of the atoll and its possible to see them in the tens.

They put up a fine show for the divers as they come to the cleaning stations to get rid of parasites.They glide by, somersault and chase each other.

Planktons for lunch anyone? All the giants of the sea skip through several levels in the food chain to feed on the planktonsWonder where the manta chaser we ran into last year is? Everyone keep an eye out for him. Lets hope we run into him again....hehehe...

This video was taken on 22/07/2006. It shows the dive guide from Gasfinolhu leading the divers onto the topof the manta cleaning station engaging in some active interaction.
