Swimming with Manta Rays

Words are poor descriptions when it comes to describing the feeling that you get when you swim with one of these majestic creatures. One moment you are in awe, another moment frightened then marveling at the pure beauty of their wings flapping slowly while banking into a new direction. We took our dinghy up to the reef to look for them and then jumped overboard when we saw one. They swam against the current down deep then sometimes near the surface. You could feel that they knew I was close enough following them and I am sure they could have sped away but they were too busy filtering the nutrient dense water. An unforgettable experience.
