Default Manta Ray

Saturday, September 6, 2014. Diving on Chad Toner's World Cat. Drifting while we grilled some fish tacos and this Manta Ray swam up and hung around for about 10 minutes.

Very cool! I had one about that size come up to my kayak a couple of months back but it took off with a quickness once it got close, unfortunately taking the pair of cobia with him.

Thats really cool! Were you anchored on a large reef? Or just drifting?

Awesome!

I dove with two on the tenneco for ten minutes. Getting all the angles. Then I realized (after they left), I failed to turn the gopro on!!! Oh well.

That sucks. We usually turn the GoPros on before we roll in and edit when we get home. It's amazing the things you notice on the video that you miss in real time.
