Counting Mantas: 1,2,3,4,5,6,7... - At One Time!
Diving with Giant Mantas, up close and personal, has long been the unique signature encounter of the Socorro Islands. Time and again, guests tell us that it is one of the best diving experiences they have ever had, and of course we would agree.
It's unimaginable just how BIG the mantas are (up to 20+ ft, 7m wingspans), how VERY close they come to us, and how incredibly UNIQUE the entire encounter is. The fact that these encounters happen MANY times in a single dive just makes it all the more exciting. It has been said that these islands are the best place in the world to take images and video of these magnificent creatures.
How could it get better? Well - it's not unusual to see 2 or even 3 mantas at a time. But, the first two trips of 2014 have featured what can only be called a manta convention --- we are seeing 6, 7, and even 8 mantas all at the same time.
Truly one of the best New Year's gifts we've ever received. Watch the New Year Video.
