There are not many places in the world where you’ll be looking at a pile of sharks, get distracted by a gang of hammerheads, check your air, then look down to see 5 mantas gracefully dancing beneath you.
The different species of sharks, and fish are in themselves diverse and abundant, but for me it was the giant mantas that won the show – and what a show they put on for us.
So, this was my first liveaboard experience. WOW! It doesn’t get any better than this! The diving was unbelievable! Mantas galore and I swear they mimic the divers.
My mask was filled with the sight of dolphins and mantas happily interacting with divers for the entire dive.
A manta bigger than I could imagine stayed with us for 40 minutes, circling the group, getting as close as half a metre from us, from me.
Less than 5 minutes in water and we ran into 2 dolphins chasing a manta right in front of us!!
Possibly the best dive I’ll ever have in my life at Cabo Pearce dive site! Many manta rays, 8 dolphins, hammerheads – can you imagine? Wowee!
