The tale of the eagle ray ... with no tail

| No TrackBacks

by Frank Gaona, Dive Centre Manager at Emperor Divers You & Me

Eagle ray video

 

"The 'tail' of the eagle ray - or not in this case! A few days ago in one of my favourite spots that we named Broken Rock, we were super lucky to find a beautiful and amazing eagle ray that was very curious as you can see in the video.

Eagle rays are a group of cartilaginous fishes in the family Myliobatidae, consisting mostly of large species living in the open ocean rather than on the sea bottom. They feed on molluscs and crustaceans, crushing their shells with their flattened teeth. Devil and manta rays filter plankton from the water.

They are excellent swimmers and are able to breach the water up to several metres above the surface. Compared with other rays, they have long tails and well-defined, rhomboidal bodies. They are ovoviviparous, giving birth to up to six young at a time.

Did you notice that it's missing it's tail? Come and dive with us in Broken Rock and let's see if you can get as lucky too!"

Maldives You & Me Resort and magical mantas

| No TrackBacks

 

Mantas, Maldives

 

The season might be winding down but we are still seeing mantas at the cleaning station getting cleaned. Just so wonderful to watch.

Our Dive Centre is right on the arrival jetty with direct access to the lagoon. This is also where our dive dhonis (boats) leave for an exciting range of dive sites, which suit all levels of experience. For the more experienced, we offer wall and current diving where we are also able to spot bigger fish such as eagle rays, grey reef sharks, tunas, snappers, mantas and more.
