Manta Ray

In the Mi'l Channel on the island of Yap there is an underwater canyon about 70-80 feet deep with a sandy coral rubble bottom and vertical coral walls. Around the coral formations are cleaning stations where the Mantas will come for little fish to clean them. You do a back roll into the water, descend to depth and position yourself, almost like a hunter in a deer stand, to wait for the Manta to come to you. The anticipation of seeing the Manta is almost unbearable. It seems like they will never come but when they do it is breathtaking. Their size, grace and beauty are truly worth waiting for.
