Swimming & snorkeling with Manta Rays is a unique and awe-inspiring experience and an opportunity not to be missed when visiting Fiji

Now, it needn't take hours, days and great expense to complete this excursion, this can be done just a 20 minute flight away from Nadi to Mantaray Island Resort in the Yasawa Group of Islands.

Your day starts with a fabulous scenic flight by seaplane to Mantaray Island Resort in the Yasawas.  As the seaplanes fly low you are able to see the stunning islands, reefs and picture perfect colors of the Pacific Ocean along the way. 

Your pilot will provide commentary along the way, pointing out all the landmarks and Island Resorts as you pass by.

Resort staff monitor the channel regularly throughout the day, if Manta Rays are spotted a gong is sounded to let all guests know.  Everyone is then kitted out with goggles, snorkels and flippers before jumping on board a small motor boat which takes you to the channel, about 5 minutes away.

After your swim, a nutritious and delicious lunch awaits.  The remainder of the day can be spent relaxing on the beach, exploring the island or more snorkeling in the bountiful reef directly in front of the resort.

The Manta Rays season is generally from May to October, clients wishing to do this day trip outside of these dates or if the Manta Rays are not spotted, will be offered a guided snorkel trip instead.hields.

“efficient, well organised transport to the Yasawa islands” rather than staying one night on the main island, we booked flights with Pacific Island Air to take us to our destination after arriving in Nadi. On the day of departure we were being picked up by the seaplane as well, again allowing us to cover the distance between the resort and home in NZ in one day. This is a well run enterprise, adding value to the trip by giving comments, even making a little detour to see the manta rays from the air. Worth the extra money since it cuts back the travelling time significantly. Friendly, attentive and well organised: we will use their service again in future.
