But is not finishing everything there, in our second dive we headed directly to the West Ridge to find a couple of Mantas doing barrels right before another one came to check what was going on, while a fourth one pass by next to the island (four!!!!!!),  60 minutes dive enjoying the very BEST Manta Show of the Season, thank you very much to Christine for attracting such a good luck in her Birthday.

Next dive was at Koh Tachai, The Dome, where we were seriously not expecting to beat the first ones, but right when we went down another Huge Manta was waiting for us followed for a bunch of Giant Trevallies. Great Show followed for a Barracuda Tornado trying to get the attention from us…Jelous maybe of everybody taking pictures of the Manta????, no worries, is space in the Sdcards for you guys.
