Manta Ray on Christmas Eve Diving in Sharm El Sheikh

A Close encounter with a Manta Ray while diving in Sharm El Sheikh

After mooring up to eat lunch, Kevin Hawke noticed a fin that kept breaking the water. Of course the first shout that went up was “Shark” (not from Kevin of course as he is a veteran diver who completed his 400 dive on a previous dive and knows how a sharks fin cuts the water).
It was a manta ray. Not very rare these days in Sharm, well in the summer months anyway. Today was 24th December. Christmas Eve.
The water still a comfortable 24 Deg C.
The manta stayed in the same area for over two hours while we were there, feeding on the surface. So was a school of milk fish that also surface feed.
It appears there is a back wash in that area where the plankton gathers so we’ll be paying another visit the next time we pass with fingers crossed of course.
