Some of the most amazing encounters with my favourite marine species!

mobula_azores

We were diving next to a wall at a famous dive site of the Azores islands (Formigas), when suddenly this mobula ray appeared out the blue and started circling around our heads for few minutes! It was unbelievable to be so close to this amazing and beautiful creature! Just like many sharks, and other marine species, these rays need our protection. You can find out how to help and get lots more information here: https://mantatrust.teemill.co.uk
