Manta Ray at Omeo Wreck

Manta Ray at the Omeo shipwreck

Sunday 6 January 2019Discover Scuba Diving

What if you were told that you would see a Manta Ray on your first ever dive? What if that was at Perth’s North Coogee beach, just out past the Omeo Wreck? ……yes I’d probably say the same! But for one very lucky Kelly it was the moment of a life time when a Manta Ray with over 2m span hooved into view, flying past with a two pronged heavy metal salute and two remora attached, then returning for a second fly past before leaving us wide eyed and punching the air (well water!) with delight. (Nb. In accordance to PADI regulations we are not allowed to video/photograph during teaching). Add to that an Octopus, Cuttlefish, Western King Wrasse, Sea Sweep, a shoal of 7 old Wifes, plus a Talma to name but a few, and that’s one memorable day that will stay with someone the rest of their life and why I love doing this job.

Congratulations to Kelly for being an ace student and breezing through the day’s experience. Hope to see you back for your Open Water course Kelly.
