You can swim with manta rays all year round at Coral Bay on Western Australia’s Coral Coast. Like whale sharks, manta rays are filter feeders and have a large toothless mouth which they use like a sieve to scoop up plankton and krill. Their wingspans measure several metres, enabling them to swim at rapid speeds, occasionally leaping out of the water and landing with a slap.
Unlike stingrays, manta rays do not have a sharp barb, making them very safe to swim, snorkel or dive with.
Watch these majestic creatures glide elegantly and effortlessly through the water by joining a tour to swim with manta rays at Coral Bay. You may be lucky enough to see a group of males displaying their acrobatic skills, as they compete with each other for a female’s attention.
Tours depart daily, all year round, from Coral Bay offered as full & half day tours.
