Aloha Everyone!

It takes a little bravery to enter a reef at night but for Louis, Noah, Amanda, Ali, Yani, Lianna, Journey Stephen, and many more the risk came with much reward! We slowly enter the reef with large pot lights and inflated rings to keep us afloat. Within moments, the lights begin to attract large shadow-like creatures with large wings gliding beneath us through the tranquil waters like an acrobat. Fortunately, unlike sting rays, mantas do not have stingers! They feed on microscopic plankton, which accounts for their large gaping mouths. Luckily they didn’t feed on us as well. What a sight to see!
