Manta ray sighting off Hollywood Beach

A manta ray cruises past us.

Log Book entry #999

Buddy: Dawn

Oh my gosh! Can you say WOW!!! First of all this is my go-to site. My church. Church of the Holy Sea. My solitude. My zen. I was keeping track of how many times I’ve dived here, and it’s one of the top 5 dived sites. ¬†And it doesn’t disappoint.

This dive had a new critter sighting for me. A manta ray. OMG. 15ft of water, I was concentrating on some little critter, got my shot, and felt I needed to look up. (Did Dawn yell at me? She says she did, but I don’t remember hearing her scream). I look up and see the white diamond of the belly. I’ve seen enough photos and videos to know what it is. And I somehow managed to get a couple shots off before I finally settled down and started to breathe.

One of the worst things a diver can do is breath hold.. but dang..

Excitement. Exhilaration. Wow. Just. Wow.
