As forecasted, it was cloudy in the morning, with some northeast with and the sky covered with clouds.


After thinking for a while, we decided to cruise down south today, and it was a right call.


Because we saw big stuff!


This big lined surgeonfish?



This huge nudibranch?

This one was over 10cm long, so it was big…

But no.


Then these?

This was a big school of Indian mackerel, but no.


The answer is this!



A family of humpback whales!!!


They showed us a big jump right in front of us!

But it was such a surprise, and couldn’t get a good shot…

We managed to get some video clip, so please check our FB page!


And that wasn’t the end of the story – we saw two mantas at Panari Manta Point today!

They circled around the cleaning station for a long time 🙂


For our guests today, it was their first manta encounter, and humpback whale encounter!

What a day!!!
