It is late in the afternoon and we are on our way to Fesdu Lagoon here in the Maldives, where we want to park before dark. The entrance to the lagoon is not wide, so we can only enter during daylight, as we can see the reef. The special thing about this lagoon is that it is not only big enough for a liveaboard, but especially because mantas regularly come into the lagoon in the evening to eat. And that is the perfect opportunity for us divers to take a night dive with these elegant giants.
Magical is what they are. Dancing elegantly on top of a manta cleaning station. Seeking contact with each other and us. They are a delight to encounter and I cannot seem to get enough of them.
As we travelled through Raja Ampat this last week we had an amazing dive with 5 Oceanic Mantas. Check out the video.

Check out how she changes colors and textures in the video...
That the manta has a intriguing effect on us, that is obvious. But can you imagine meeting on on a night dive?
What a great adventure diving the Maldives. Check out the movie of my latest trip.
Let's get crazy with blotched stingrays, pink whiprays, bannerfish, surgeons, trigger fish and much more....
One of the best dives ever. An eagle ray that comes to hang with me... Check out the video and the pictures.
One of the best dive sites of the Maldives with some unexpected treasures 😉
