This trip is special. We are going during the manta ray mating season. The male mantas chase the females all over the reef, right above you and all around you, in an attempt to make baby mantas! It's also date specific and timed to take advantage of the high incoming tide in the morning. That means we get the clearest water we can.
UPDATE UPDATE UPDATE:
Go anytime and get this price. Although I can't guarantee you'll see as many mantas as we will you'll get the same price. If you'd like to stay longer let me know.

WHEN TO GO: If you can plan your trip around the new or full moon tides in the mornings you'll have the best visiility in the channels that the mantas reside. Take a look at the tides.
MIN # OF DIVERS: ThIS special package prices are based on 2 divers to book at the same time, share a room, and participate in the activities together.
SINGLE OCCUPANCY? One of the great services that Bill Acker provides is that there is NO addl charge for a single room if they are not fully booked in the room style you choose. They retain the option of putting another person (same sex) in your rooom if they need the space. If you want a room exclusively yourself you'll have to pay a single supplemental $232 room charge.
