Mantas Last Dance

A little something for all us sea creatures --

Giant mantas, 'sea gypsy' share dance in stunning, one-of-a-kind film

Enjoy,

Paul

Very nice. Who would have thought you could do that? Well, I couldn't do that...

Thanks for passing it on.

Re: Mantas Last Dance

Beautiful choreography.

I have snorkelled with a giant manta ray in Blue Pearl Bay, Hayman Island in the Whitsundays (NE Australia) and it was the most unforgettable experience. The ray maintained my pace about a metre and a half below me, slowing down or speeding up as I did for around half an hour (turtles occasionally do that there as well). Absolutely magical creatures and a magical experience!

Re: Mantas Last Dance

way cheeeesy for me

I prefer real mantas doing their own thing when they come. They do not come often though.

Re: Mantas Last Dance

I've ridden on the backs of these magnificent creatures in Hawaii, North Carolina, and Key West. It's like they barely notice you. As for the "professional model-mermaid", well, it's interpretive dance which one may/may not have a liking. Hooey is in the mind of the beholder.
