Manta Reef is famed for its three Manta Ray cleaning stations as well as its stunning terrain, making it a perfect setting for photography and study. With a visibility of 20 meters (65 feet) or greater and a depth of 26 meters (85 feet), this dive is best suited to expert divers with drift experience. Because of the abundance of marine life, it is a very popular destination. Manta Point and its deep-sea cleaning station are a little further on. The gullies, overhangs, and ledges will appeal to advanced divers.

Day 9 finally brings your Whale Shark Snorkel Safari. These majestic creatures frequent the Praia do Tofo bay and on some days up to 10 Whale Sharks can be seen! As you sit on the dive boat, kitted in snorkel gear, be ready to slip into the water at a moments notice to swim along with these giant animals. No need to fear though!

The big things to see here of course include the Humpback Whales and Manta Rays. In season you will hear Humpback Whales on nearly every dive and always have a chance of seeing one when on scuba. Many times, when surfacing after a dive you will notice that you are not too far from one of these amazing giants. They can he very curious and so we simply need to observe when the opportunity presents itself.
