MANTAS

ANIMAL HABITAT - Winner

MANTA RAY, MANTA SP.

From above you get a true indication of the vast numbers of large marine animals in Ningaloo Reef’s lagoons. I will never forget seeing these huge manta rays swimming so close to shore. Over 30 manta rays, dugongs, humpback whales, tiger sharks and dolphins were seen during this flight.
