This is a great night dive spot. Mantas are really fabulous (success rate is about 80%). If you miss them, typical marine life found in this area are garden eels, squirrel fish, goat fish, butterfly fish, moray eels and invertebrates.
This great spot is second only to Manta Ray Village. The Sheraton hotle shines lights down into the water which attracts plankton. In search of a meal, manta rays soar in and gourge themselves. Get in the water at sundown and get on the bottom and wait. Soon manta rays come to eat. Horrid surge though. Extremely difficult to find a good spot where you won't get beat up by the rocks and surge.
