During manta ray season, you will likely dive with up to 10 manta rays. The mantas come in different sizes and can grow up to 6 metres wide. These mystical creatures often descend close to scuba divers. Therefore, you can enjoy their dance moves up close as they feed on plankton. Further, the dive hosts a variety of marine wildlife, including wobbegong sharks, turtles, dolphins and a myriad of tropical fish. Other dive highlights include the numerous leopard sharks that sleep peacefully on the ocean floor. Sometimes, you can also encounter humpback whales as they migrate from May to October.
Without a doubt, this is one dive you have to do in your lifetime!
Finally, Shag Rock or Stradbroke Island Artificial Reef will be the alternative dive site if the conditions aren’t in our favour.
