Diving & Snorkeling in Manta Point

Manta point is home to a variety of uncommon animals found only in the Indonesian sea. Knowing that you can interact with endangered species should make you more cautious about causing harm to their ecology.

Before diving, make sure you’ve checked with a specialist to see if the current in the area is safe. If the water current is excessively strong, it will consume more energy, causing the body to become rapidly exhausted.

The Manta Ray is the largest, with a distance between each fin of around 6 to 8 meters. Do not be careless, as this species can weigh up to 3 tons. Unfortunately, Indonesia’s marine beauty is on the verge of being extinct, thus it is classified as rare.

Diving with the Manta Ray is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Keep a lookout above you as you enter Manta Point for the telltale shadows of Manta cruising by to check you out. They’re well aware that you’ve entered their domain, but don’t be alarmed; these critters are known to be sociable and interested.

Your divemaster will most likely discover a suitable area on the flat sandy bottom and notify you to join them after you’ve sat down. This signifies it’s time to unwind, regulate your buoyancy, and prepare to sink. You can communicate to the Manta that you’re safe and invite them into your territory by basing yourself on the bottom and without demonstrating any aggressive behavior or rapid movements.
