Manta at Lankan Bearu What would you expect from a dive trip to the Maldives in low season? A lot of rain, low visibility, strong winds and waves? Well, it can be very different, as we could see on our recent dive trip. Two Mantas on the first dive raised our expectations, and we were not disappointed. 

Lankan Bearu, also known as "Manta Point", is a divesite in the North Male Atoll not far from Male. In the briefing our guides kept talking about the cleaning stations that would be visited by Mantas regularly, and that we would have an 80% or so chance to see Mantas on our dive. As you can hear promises like this in many diving locations all over the world I thought it might be better to keep my expectations low. But then about 15 minutes into the dive, they came out of the blue: Two Mantas showed up just as promised! What a lucky day
