Manta Point is a long flat seabottom where Mantas gather to feed on the rich plankton mixing from the Indian and Pacific Oceans. It is a slow drift dive with the current and very exciting when we saw Mantas. They are intelligent creatures and when they noticed us they move in closer to check us out.
