Snorkeling in Sangalaki Island

 

Sangalaki Island also known for snorkeling activities. Snorkeling is the easiest way to watch swimming manta rays and there won't be time limit. Aside from manta pathway, we also have snorkeling sites with dense coral reefs and healthy marine life.

"Sangalaki is the world Capital of Mantas. At Sangalaki Diving Site the familiar set of Manta Rays emerges from all directions. Their wing tips breaking the surfaces at regular interval. Snorkelling is the way to interact with this gentle plankton feeders. Totally unperturbed by your presence, they swim in eurythymy and sometimes glide right up to you before making a sharp nose-dive into the blue. It is not unusual to find them encircling you. Though most of them are about 3,5 meters (12 ft) wide with a white belly, there a few black giant with a 6 meters (20 ft) wing span - we refer to them fondly as the Darth Vaders. The sensation of looking through their giant mouths cannot be described, it must be experienced. it is totally out of this world, so much so that one published writer reported that he was whacked by his own adrenaline."
