Double whammy dive sites on Lembongan for manta research


21OCT12: We have been taking out Peter from Aquatice Alliance for more manta research, and the other day we did a double whammy of Manta Point and Manta Bay.

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.

Find out more about manta research from Aquatic Alliance, as well as diving with manta's in Lembongan with us.
