    What an amazing experience this was. We went out on a tour boat for the day to hopefully swim with some Manta Rays. 
We started off with a snorkel on the reef which once in the water was a bit much for little Brodz so Muzz and Rafe went on and saw some pretty cool fish and coral. Along the way we saw some dolphins which was really cool.
We then went out further to try to find some Manta Rays with the help of a plane flying overhead to spot them. A change in the weather it was becoming quite doubtful and looking back I can't quite believe we actually got in the water. It was getting quite rough with about a 3 metre swell but we did it and what an experience it was. Rafe and Brodie stayed on board with Tegan. We were lucky enough to swim with 2 manta rays. They're huge spanning around 4 -5 metres wide.
Once back on board i couldnt handle the waves and my stomach started to turn and ended up vomiting overboard which wasn't too great lol
Such a cool day though and a great experience for us all.

Did you know that most of our manta interactions are in shallow waters, usually around 10 meters deep! Perfect for those who would like to learn or try scuba diving for the first time! 🧜🏻‍♀️

    TB to a month ago where we were snorkelling with these beauties off the coast of Bali. We are happy to announce that 10% of our profit will go to the coral restoration project Metamorfosa.org on the northern coast of Bali in the #sumberkimabay 
The inspiration to start vandaya started in Bali, so we are happy to be able to give back to nature and the community in Sumberkima 🌊🐚

    A school of juvenile golden trevally swimming ahead of a manta ray that’s feeding along the sand flats!

Did you know that manta rays have the largest brain to body ratio of any fish? Come out on our manta tour to learn more!

    Manta Ray bubble baths. Manta Rays in the Socorro Islands love the way that scuba diver’s bubbles feel on their tummies, and will often slow down or stop swimming while hovering over diver’s bubbles, like this one swimming with @nickhollis_. This can be quite amusing, as mantas sink when they are not swimming, and will sometimes push divers down in an effort to have the longest bubble bath possible.

    #Elegance - Manta rays are in my opinion the most graceful creatures in this planet, seeing how easily and with what mastery they can fly in the water is truly astonishing. They are also incredibly playful and do seek proactively interaction with humans if they are at ease.

Mantas relate to one memorable moment of my life. Last year during a trip to Hawaii - I was freediving alone around 100m from the coast, up until I met with a manta ray and started playing with her for like 10 mins. Following each other and swimming with each other in parallel. Truly a blissful moment and a life changing experience, increasing exponentially my love for the sea!

    Nusa Penida MPA is home to the gentle giants of the sea: manta rays!
But in recent years pollution and fishing for their gill rakers has increased, threatening their survival. A @marinemegafauna study found mantas in Indonesia ingest between 40-90 pieces of plastic every hour while surface feeding.
But you can help by reducing your plastic waste, supporting marine conservation efforts, and starting conversations with your friends and family about how we can all contribute to protect mantas!

KKP Nusa Penida merupakan rumah bagi hewan-hewan laut raksasa, pari manta!
Namun, beberapa tahun terakhir, polusi dan perburuan terhadap tapis insangnya meningkat, sehingga mengancam keselamatannya. Sebuah studi dari @marinemegafauna menunjukkan bahwa 40-90 plastik termakan oleh ikan pari di Indonesia setiap jamnya saat hendak mencari makan ke permukaan.
Namun Anda dapat membantu mengurangi sampah plastik Anda, mendukung usaha konservasi laut, dan memulai diskusi dengan keluarga dan teman Anda untuk bersama-sama menjaga pari manta!

    Манты - пришельцы из космоса. Вы знаете, что представители рода мант - это единственные животные на планете, у которых ТРИ пары конечностей?

Это рифовые манты (Manta alfredi), у них размах крыльев чуть больше 3м. На Бали я встречался с гигантскими мантами, они в два раза крупнее, но там они в нескольких метрах плавали, а тут в 10см над тобой кружатся несколько десятков этих космических рыб, иногда касаясь тебя. Лайфхак: свет привлекает планктон, планктон привлекает мант -> включаем весь свет что есть, ждём, когда манты приплывут пировать. Третье видео специально добавил - там хорошо видно, что они едят. )

P.S. Погружение было на очень маленькой глубине, мы почти не двигались, так что одного баллона хватало очень надолго. У меня несколько часов такого видео, было очень трудно выбирать - хотелось сразу всё выложить. )

    "Anolis Aquaticus" also known as the Scuba Diving Lizard can stay submerged underwater for around 15 minutes. It breathes underwater through the pulsating air bubble seen on the top of its head.
