Its an amazing sight when you are sittig on the ocean floor and a huge Manta is circling right above you. And watching you...:-)
I went for a dive trip to Komodo NP between July 10 and July 15. Amazing dives, beautiful corals and fishes and animals. Really fantastic. Some sites with strong currents.

The most amazing drift dive of these was the cauldron / the shotgun. A very strong current up to 5-6kt blows you throug a channel...

The greatest dive was perhaps the dive around Mawan Island, a cleaning station for Mantas. One dive we didnt see any mantas, but on the second dive we were lucky and three mantas were visiting, and a turtle and a cuttlefish.

Mantas at Mawan island!





funny: a manta diving nosedown into the sand-I have never seen this before
