Shadow reef, Raja Amput, Indonesia

The famous shadow reef – a cleaning station for big fish! Dropped onto the reef and immediately saw a Manta. It came in and swooped twice to pick its spot but too many divers chased it off.

I really wish people would be considerate – not of other divers but of the magnificent animal’s habit. It went away. Finned along reef left shoulder. Lovely hard and soft corals. Huge shoal of fusileers and top of the reef. Counted 3 large groupers over 30 mins at between 10 and 20m. Nice white tip reef shark under table coral.

Really nice dive!
