What a special experience to be a part of and see these huge majestic creatures up close and personal. Danielle was amazing and would not hesitate to do it again. Just make sure to have a go prop makes the experience even better!

A short ride in a replica of a double hull sailing canoe to the mantas feeding on plankton attracted by the lights. Great experience! The mantas come very close (don't touch) and there were a lot of them. Crew was great, very knowledgeable and helpful.
