From June till October some Mantas are visiting a cleaning station located in an atoll-channel near the island of Gulhi. After a blue-water-entry we dive against the current close to a coral block in the middle of the channel which is used as a cleaning station by these impressive and fascinating animals. We have reached the dive site Manta Point.
Holding on to the ground near this coral block we watch the "giants of the sea" - the Mantas. Gliding with unbelievable elegant movements they are approaching from the drop-off of the channel and stop exactly in front of our eyes. Playing with the current they open their wings to be cleaned by all the little cleaning-fish around the coral block. After this treatment they sometimes glide slowly and very close above our heads and take a "shower" in our air-bubbles.
