MANTA EXPEDITION

"Experience mantas like never before while contributing to their research and conservation"

ABOUT US

- WHO ARE WE -

Manta Expeditions is a UK registered company closely affiliated to the Manta Trust. Our mission is to raise awareness and provide education on manta ray conservation through eco-minded thematic trips. Manta Expeditions offers both liveaboard and land-based dive and snorkel trips that focus specifically on getting our guests in close proximity to manta rays, whale sharks and other ‘wish list’ marine species, while imparting expert knowledge and skills. The profit generated by Manta Expeditions is donated to the Manta Trust to fund mobulid research and conservation work globally.

 

- THE EXPERIENCE -

The core focus of our expeditions is to not only provide close encounters with manta rays but to enthuse and educate divers in marine conservation issues and the environment surrounding them. Through a series of presentations on topics covering local marine species and habitats, Manta Expeditions trips ensure that divers leave with an increased awareness of the threats these graceful creatures are facing and, perhaps more importantly, how they can help. Workshops in collecting and recording manta ID images cements the theoretical and practical aspects of the research being conducted by giving divers and snorkelers the tools to get involved, knowing that they are contributing meaningful data to the project.

 

- THE MANTA TRUST -

The Manta Trust has ongoing research and conservation projects located all around the world at many of the ocean’s top manta ray dive destinations. At each of these locations, the expertise of our Project Leaders coupled with local knowledge of the manta ray population and the natural history of the region ensures our guests receive a genuinely enriched and educational experience. We work with a number of worldwide tour operators to offer the best opportunities to interact with and learn more about manta rays and the wider marine environment.
