Take a Swimming Lesson with Manta Rays

  • You’re in Tofo, Mozambique! This tiny town is far from everything and the manta rays are waiting for you.
  • If you want to take a swimming lesson with manta rays, there are two things you should do. First, find out where the tour operators are based. Second and most importantly, prepare yourself for what awaits when you arrive at the site.
  • You will be briefed by your guide on how to swim with these gentle giants of nature: “Never touch their wings or gills as they could get injured,” he says. “Make sure that if they touch you it’s not too hard.”
  • Before getting into your wetsuit and goggles (which should have been provided beforehand), make sure there aren’t any cuts or bruises on your body because these can hurt them when they come close to check things out…or perhaps just say hello!
