Understanding the Ocean Giants
By Josh Stewart, Manta Trust Associate Director

Kicking in the mild current, an underwater landscape impossibly dramatic unfolds beneath me; I have a bird’s eye—or fish’s eye—view of peaks rising out of the depths, and cliffs that plunge hundreds of meters straight down into apparent nothingness. From everything I’ve seen previously, this should be a veritable hotspot for oceanic manta rays; the topography is right, the season is right, cleaning stations abound on the rocky reefs, but where are the mantas?
