Manta Action for Kamtime Adventures
This Maldives Siren trip started with a welcome break in the clouds and brilliant sunlight to welcome our group of seasoned American divers. Eager to get wet after 36 hours of traveling we moved through our briefings and dived on in on for our check dive at Fedu Finolu. Green turtles, bearded scorpion fish, dog toothed tuna and giant morays were all in the welcoming committee! Out first full day of fun started with a bang at Lankan Manta Point. With a lazy current running right shoulder we enjoyed a very gentle drift dive, admiring the sleeping white tips, schooling oriental sweetlips and four striped snapper. Schools of neon fusilier and rainbow runners doing swim bys kept us company until out of the gloom appeared the outline of an animal my eyes had been straining to glimpse. Manta! After some furious tank banging to attract my rather distracted divers we all got a look at what we’d come here for. A great taster on what hopefully would become a theme to the trip.
