Hi Edmond, thanks for the comments - greatly appreciated!

 

As I understand it, November is the best time for both mantas and whale sharks.

They have them year round, which is unique for the place. I've been in November and we had a draft then. Only one "real" dive with mantas in 18 dives and then a few snorkel opportunities with whale sharks on the way to and from the the dive sites. There had been a white shark spotted a week before our visit. I suspect it did scare the mantas away? It was seen once on Manta Reef by Simon Pierce and then once in the surface off Tofinjo. A group of scuba tourists thought it was a whale shark and was just about to jump into the water and snorkel with it when Simon noticed that it wasn't a whale shark and stopped them...
