Mantas jumping out of the water
Now that is something you don’t see every day – mantas jumping out of the water at Hanifaru Bay. It is not clear if mantas jump out of the water because they can or to rid themselves of parasites stuck to their bodies or to impress their mate. It certainly impressed us. We will have to ask our friends from Manta Trust to investigate further. Last week the weather was really good and we went on 2 all day snorkel excursions which were a lot of fun. We snorkelled with cuttle fish, lobsters, turtles, nemos, napoleon, nurse sharks and some dolphins followed us on the way. Our lunch location was we a deserted paradise island which we had all to ourselves. We have happy divers too, as we could show them 3 grey reef sharks at Kihaadufaru Thila a squadron of 5 eaglerays at Dhonfan Thila and a squadron of 5 mantas at Nelivaru Haa and little wendletrap snails laying their eggs in a daisy coral, colourful flatworms and millions of glassfish. Let us show you the beautiful dive and snorkel sites of the Baa Atoll.
