Double whammy dive sites on Lembongan for manta research

Double whammy dive sites on Lembongan for manta research

Manta Point provided a superb experience as we witnessed a manta mating train, this is the courtship ritual where a series of males follow a female around vying for her acceptance to mate with them. Manta Bay was consistent with some mantas on the surface which the guys were lucky enough to snorkel with.

On a previous trip we came across a heavily pregnant female. This is/was very exciting because it was thought that the birthing times was around august.
