First Manta of 2009 spotted at La Herradura

May 12, 2009

We spotted a manta ray today at La Herradura.  20 mins into the dive the Manta birostris appeared.  Aproximatly 2.5m wide it swam amongst the group for over 20mins before dissapearing into the blue.

Mantas are regularly seen in El Hierro usually from May to September.  For more info on Mantas check out http://marinebio.org/species.asp?id=49
