I have always loved throwing a great party. However, unlike many people, I enjoy planning the parties even more than I do hosting them and mixing and mingling with my guests. While I enjoy decorating and preparing food to serve my guests, my favorite aspect of a party to plan is the entertainment. I have hired DJs, live bands, and even magicians. While many people think that magicians are just for children's parties, I have a favorite magician who never fails to entertain my group of adult friends. I love party planning so much that I decided to create a blog to share my party planning tips on with a focus on party entertainment!
The ocean includes a lot of natural wonders, and diving trips can get you up close and personal with some unique sea creatures. One specific diving trip you can book is a trip where you dive with manta rays. Manta rays are a very specific type of sea creature that divers have explored and witnessed for multiple generations.
Check out some fun facts about the diving trips and a little about what you can expect on your upcoming journey.
1. Their Size
Manta rays are known for their massive size. No matter how many pictures you view online, you cannot truly picture the sizes of these sea creatures until you see them in person. A fully-grown manta ray will typically measure taller and wider than a human. The size of the rays is one of the main reasons they are so breathtaking to see underwater.
Seeing the rays in their natural habitat showcases their size a lot more than viewing other rays in smaller aquarium tanks.
2. Attracting Other Fish
The massive size of a manta ray is not a deterrent for many other fish. The algae and other debris that gets stuck to a manta ray's body is often an attractant for other fish who feed off those elements. When you go diving with manta rays, you will get an opportunity to see lots of other fish around the ray and really expand what you get to see underwater.
When you go diving in vivid clear water, you can see light reflect off the fish and a wide range of species.
3. No Dangers
One of the best parts of diving with manta rays is the safety you will feel around the creatures. Their size may be massive, but the rays are gentle giants who only feed on plankton in the water. The mantas do not sting or bite humans and have been known to be friendly with divers. Follow instructions set forth by a dive team to ensure you don't run into any problems.
4. Clear Visuals
Manta rays are often drawn to diving trips through the use of plankton. Divers have learned the best way to attract plankton to an area is with light. So along with natural sunlight, dive teams will use large bright lights to attract plankton and make the manta rays come closer. This helps ensure you will see the rays and not just an empty ocean.
The lights will help you see all of the details in the sea creature.
When you book your diving trip, you can enjoy a lot of fun adventures and learn even more about the manta ray.
