An experience of a lifetime

If you are lucky enough to experience swimming with the manta rays, you will talk about it for decades to come! Swimming with these majestic creatures must be one of the most amazing experiences the natural world has to offer. The manta rays glide through the channel between Nanuya Balavu and Drawaqa Islands nearly every day from May to October on the change of tide to feed.

Of course, they are wild, so we can't guarantee you'll see them but if you do, no photograph will prepare you for that first sighting. The manta rays don't mind swimmers, so there's a good chance your encounter will be a lengthy one as they turn and glide in the waters beneath you, huge mouths open as they feed on the plankton.

Note: Some Awesome Experiences 'Full Monty' add-on activities are available only at certain resorts so where you stay determines the activities that you can do. In some cases beyond our control, an activity may not be available - we will offer an alternative and equally great activity.
