"Swimming with manta rays" Nadi Things to Do Tip by Maccabee

Nadi Things to Do: 26 reviews and 57 photos

We went on a cruise and were able to swim with the giant manta rays. It was the most beautiful experience, they are amazing and huge ! We were on a Captain Cook sailing safari staying at Barefoot lodge. There was a lookout on the island who saw the manta-rays in a nearby bay, so we all scrambled into the boat and were taken around to see them. I could have swam with them for ages, so mesmerising.

The sailing cruise was great too ! We stayed in little bures on the island, ate beautiful meals, watched the sunset from our bure, drank kava, sang songs, danced, relaxed - it was ideal for a couple of city chics who wanted to just chill out and relax.

Would love to go back one day with my kids and show them the giant manta rays.
