At Sangalaki the familiar shape of Manta Rays emerges from all directions. Their wing tips breaking the surface at regular intervals. Totally unperturbed by your presence, they swim in eurythmy and sometimes glide right up to you before making a sharp nose-dive into the blue. It is not unusual to find ten of them encircling you. Though most of them are about 3,5 meters (12 ft) wide with a white belly, there are a few black giants with a 6 meters (20 ft) wing span.

Equipment: U don't have to scuba dive to see Mantas. But if u are, world down there is absolutely amazing! Here all the fish are in gigantic sizes, unlike I've seen before!
