Scuba Diving in Fiji
Dive Site: Manta Ray Point
Location: South Yadua
Depth: 18 metres (59 feet)
Visibility: 30 - 40 metres (100 - 130 feet)
This site is only a one-minute boat trip away from Waterfall Bay. All sixteen of us on the expedition were lucky enough to see at least one manta ray in the three months that we were there. It is advisable to keep looking up and around into the blue and on the reef tops as a manta may suddenly emerge. I saw two at once and was amazed at how gracefully and slowly they swam, it was almost surreal. This is a great dive even if you don't see mantas however. Expect to find lots of harlequin sweetlips, massive porites coral colonies covered in Christmas tree worms, high fin groupers and large table corals. I also saw the largest humphead wrasse I have ever seen anywhere.
