Manta Point e Underwater Cave vicino a Crystal Bay (Depth: 20-30m; Durata: 4hrs): Le mante possono essere viste dalla superficie dell'acqua quando si fa snorkeling nella Baia di Manta, tuttavia gli apneisti più esperti potrebbero voler visitare il Manta Point, dove le mante di un'apertura alare 3-4m entrano ed escono da una grotta sottomarina non lontano da Crystal Bay . E per un photoshoot fotogenico, dai un'occhiata al Buddha Point dove una statua del Buddha sott'acqua è stata collocata a circa 5m di profondità e può essere facilmente vista dalla superficie.
