Manta Ray

Queensland plays host to a number of these magnificent gentle giants with a wing span of anything up to 7metres. Lady Elliott, Osprey Reef, Heron Island and Lady Musgrave offer manta Ray sightings regularly throughout the year. They are harmless with short tails and no stinging barb and feed off microscopic plankton. With the largest brain to body size ratio of any living fish, manta Rays are very inquisitive and are amazing to dive with.
