Manta Madness

May 12, 2006

After spending the morning looking for dolphins, we stop and drift over a manta ray cleaning station on the west side of Maui. These huge manta rays swim onto the reef from deep water in order to be cleaned of parasites by small wrasse. Literally hovering over the reef, the fish go right to work to clean the big mantas, sometimes going right into their mouths! Amazing!
