32 SN ORKEL with manta rays

Paradise - - Traveller | Our Country -

Snorkel with manta rays at Gona Bara Bara Is­land at Milne Bay. The rays are at­tracted to the is­land, where a sec­tion of fring­ing reef has been dubbed as a ‘manta ray clean­ing sta­tion’. The grace­ful crea­tures are cleaned of par­a­sites here by cleaner fish. Tour op­er­a­tors run half-day trips to the small is­land, or you could stay stay for sev­eral weeks and live along­side the tiny lo­cal com­mu­nity as a vol­un­teer for Manta Watch Camp. If you’re stay­ing at Doini Is­land (No. 31), they’ll take you across to the man­tas for a few hours. mantawatch­camp.org
