This is a well known manta ray cleaning site where over 100 individual mantas have been recorded. The local dive shop manager has taken on the task of recording the different manta rays, and over 9 years has “met” over 100 different rays. The cleaning stations have been noted on local dive guide maps and so spotting the manta rays on this site is very easy.

The top of the dive site is at 5 metres and it only descends down to around 16 metres where the manta rays are cleaned. The peak season for seeing these amazing animals is between May and July. They appear at all spots of the dive site and not just at the cleaning sites. They can sometimes be found in the shallower parts of the dive bit they are normally searching for their cleaning wrasse for their annual bath.

Besides from the manta rays the bommies are home to a huge array of marine life. Divers can expect to encounter barracuda, trevally, reef sharks, coral trout, moray eels, sea snakes, turtles, loggerhead turtles, green turtles, shovelnose rays, stingrays, and batfish. Leopard sharks and Wobbegong sharks have also been spotted here amongst the teeming marine life.
