Nelivaru is most popular during manta season as it is home to a cleaning station, meaning I was almost guaranteed to see manta rays on dives there.

A sand patch full of garden eels also attracts eagle rays, opportunistically looking for their next meal.

The marine life at this site is second to none, with octopus, sting rays, tuna, batfish, oriental sweetlips, unicorn fish, huge grouper, napoleon wrasse, porcupine fish and shoals of glass fish all being spotted here.

The top of the reef provided an excellent spot for my safety stop with the light allowing the beautiful colours of the reef to be seen in all their glory!
