For an experience like no other, swimming with the Manta Rays is a must do when you are in Fiji! You day commences with a scenic 20 minute flight to Manta Ray Island Resort located in the Yasawa Islands. Just 50 metres from the idyllic shores of the island, there are spectacular reefs with abundant tropical fish and marine life. Resort staff monitor the channel regularly throughout the day, and if Manta Rays are spotted, a gong is sounded to let everyone know. Jump on board a small motorboat and see the beautiful giants gliding through the water beside you!

After your unique experience, lunch is served and the remainder of the day can be spent swimming, snorkelling, relaxing on the beach or exploring the island.

Please note that the Manta Ray season is usually May to October, guests wishing to do this day trip outside of these dates, or if Manta Rays are not spotted, will be offered a guided snorkel trip instead.
