  • The purpose of this dive was to see the manta rays approach the cleaning station at a coral formation in Maupiti's lagoon. When we got in the water we saw already two mantas from the surface. Then we descended and spent most of the dive still watching the mantas come to get cleaned and go. We saw a total of 4 of them. After a while we went for a swim and we saw a couple of beautiful puffer fish. The bottom was pretty much sand, not many corals due to the cyclone a few years back.

  • Very windy and a bit rough. The first part of the dive the visibility was not great and there was no much action going on, but as we went on things started to improve. At first we saw a few sharks (grey reef and white tips) and some schools of jacks. Towards the end we've seen three manta rays and a school of barracudas.

  • Much better conditions than the previous dive. As soon as we got in the water we bumped into a school of barracudas and soon after we started hearing the sounds of dolphins. We saw a manta ray quite deep and then we saw the dolphin playing with it. It then approached us and played with Andrea for a while. After that we saw a couple more and another manta. We've also seen a big group of napoleons hunting and a moray eel swimming around. We finished the dive in the beautiful coral garden inside the pass.

    Very nice wall dive. The highlight has been a huge manta ray! The first one the instructor has seen in four months so we have been super lucky! We also saw a big school of yellow snapper, a juvenile box fish (yellow with black dots), lots of morays and lion fishes and a porcupine fish. Nice and long dive!
