Coral Bay – Manta Ray

Visiting the Ningaloo Reef is always a special experience. The little town of Coral Bay, is officially part of a desert…surrounded by beautiful coral, directly accessible for snorkeling from the beach of open for explorations further offshore with boats and diving equipment…Going for a day trip offshore, we had a snorkel encounter with feeding Manta Rays in between two dives…We were pretty lucky to see two manta rays doing their feeding flipping around…

The video might not capture it all very well as the water was a bit turbid, and the wide lens of the GoPro doesn’t capture the size of this truly impressive animal very well, but it was a very nice experience…These harmless giants can grow up to 4m, doing nothing but filter feeding…
