Yeah, there were Manta's around a fair bit. We prob saw them on about 6 dives (out of approx 24), but only on 1 dive did one of them hang around with us. That's when I got the videos. It was probably with us for a good 10mins I guess.

Yup. Ali :)

Thanks guys.

They're all mine BTW Nem. Ali is still in the sunburnt country (A land of sweeping plains, Of ragged mountain ranges, Of droughts and flooding rains. I love her far horizons, I love her jewel-sea, Her beauty and her terror – The wide brown land for me!).

I really didn't take any photo's at all. I had the camera on video all the time. The photos above are only the small/low quality jpeg's that my Panasonic produces for each video. For some reason I found that I was enjoying the diving much much more with out the camera on this trip.

We had an awesome time. Wish I was still there :cry:
