Ready to see mantas? The gentle giants can be found in the shallow reefs between Mansuar and Gam. Usually Mantas tend to come when the water is not clear and there’s more plankton on which they feed. The reef is not only visited by mantas to feed but also to be cleaned. They hover above certain coral heads in slightly deeper water, where butterfly fish and juvenile wrasses come out to pick off the parasites attached to that manta skin or inside their mouths.
This amazing animals can be seen for divers and snorkelers as well.
