Does anyone know where the best place is to see Manta rays?

Hoping to go on hols towards the end of the year, and it has always been my dream to dive with manta rays!

We are thinking Thailand? But would appreciate any advice?

Thanks loads.

Hi Cornish Maid, I'm off to Thailand at the end of July with my family. I'm planning to get in a few dives. I'll pass on any info I have when I get back. I'm going to Bangkok, Phuket and Koh Samui so should be able to give you some recent info.

Try the Manta Bowl in the Philippines... I didn't make it there on a recent trip but have heard that it is a really good dive. Check out the 'lonely planets' guide to diving in the Philippines for more info.

Similan Islands in Thailand are incredible for seeing Manta's and if you are lucky you may see a whale shark as well.... these can be accessed by doing a live-aboard from Phuket area.

Manta ray hot spot is Koh Bon which is day trip distance from Khao Lak Thailand. As for whale sharks I personally saw 2 (stroked 1!) diving from my boat out of Ao Nang Thailand, 2 days ago. The dive sites; King Cruiser and Anemone Reef.
