Manta Bay is another alternative to spot Manta Rays. This site consists of multiple bays and you can even see the Manta Rays from the surface. It is relatively shallow dive site, 5 – 12m. Currents are mild, but mainly surges. Unlike Manta Point, Manta Bay is not the cleaning station. However, Manta Rays were often spotted patrolling between 1 to 8m, and they usually come in groups.
Besides Manta Rays, you may see turtles, box fish and school of barracuda here.
