The Manta Rays of Raoria

The main attraction of our trip to French Polynesia was a two-week cruise on the Aqua Tiki II live-aboard in the Tuamotu Archipelago.

We started in Raoria a small island in the North-Eastern corner that is only serviced by plane once a week.

From the very first dive we encountered many Grey Reef Sharks, but what impressed us most were the Manta Ray encounters.
During the second dive we spotted two Manta Rays coming to a cleaning station and one stayed with us for almost 30 minutes!

The next day we spotted another Manta Ray during the morning dive and about five different Manta Rays during the noon dive and one was almost completely white!

Our last day of diving in Raoria started with many Sharks and a quick visit by a Bottlenose Dolphin :).

We also had time to visit the village one afternoon. Where, at the local supermarket we spotted a large supply of Nutella!
