Manta Month

Manta Month

Sharm is well on its way to those sultry summer days when temps hit the highs and the only place to be is in the sea, but just before we get there we have the very special Manta season.

Yes, May is Manta month; the water temps are quickly rising, and with this marine climate change comes a bloom of plankton.

Visiting Divers may be put off by these little single-cell units floating around in the sea messing up the normal 30m+ visibility, but trust us these little creatures bring in the big boys. They are the equivalent to a Cadbury’s Crème Egg to an Ex-pat – yes that’s right absolutely irresistible.

Now before you start booking yourself onto Tiran and Ras Mohamed boats almost every day think about what you want to see.

Ask any of the Red Sea College’s experienced Dive Guides where to spot Mantas and they will tell you the local sites. Mantas seem to like to cruise the coastline of Sharm el Sheikh; Far Garden, Ras Um Sid, Paradise, Ras Bob, and Ras Gamilla are some of the best sites for Manta spotting.
