BLU Manta

Blu Manta at Helengeli Island

Boat trip: 45 min
Reef type: cleaning station
Level: beginner to advanced
Depth: 10-13m

A newly discovered manta cleaning station located on the inside reef of Fairy Tale. From May to November, due to the high concentration of plankton, mantas gather in this particular lagoon for feeding. Especially, to get rid of the unwelcoming parasites on their skin and gills, they love to take a turn to their favourite spot and hover above it, using it as cleaning station.
Place yourself on the sandy bottom near the coral block, at about 10 meters depth, to watch the show of these gentle giants enjoying the treatments made by the cleaner wrasses. All around you may also encounter resting whitetip reef sharks, napoleon and many other fishes. You can finish your dive on the nearby shallow reef enjoying the nice coral garden. Easy but very interesting dive, a must for everybody!
