Scuba divers and manta rays interact yin yang like on the sandy seabed of Hanifaru Bay, Maldives. I made this photograph before scuba diving was prohibited in this marine protected area and today only snorkeling is allowed. As visitor numbers increased after 2010 this measure was later introduced to give the mantas a depth refuge where they can feed away from the close proximity of people. @mantatrust#scuba#diving#manta#maldives
A line feeding manta with an entourage of juvenile Golden Trevally puts on a show.
We have mantas almost every day for the last week. Late February and March typically has the warmest ocean conditions in Byron Bay as the East Australian Current pipes warm water straight onto Julian Rocks Marine Sanctuary. We have seen over 30 leopard sharks each day and several different mantas. This is the best time of the year for tropical visitors at the rock, jump on a snorkel / Freedive tour with me aboard @wildbyronseasafaris
