My friend Keri went snorkeling with manta rays when we were both in Bali in 2017 and ever since it’s been on my bucket list.

Bucket list check!

I went to 3 shops and they all said it was 3m (15ft) waves so they weren’t going to Manta Point because it’s on the open ocean facing side of Nusa Penida island.

So I gave up to go snorkeling and hope I might see something when I found Sanctum Dive. I mentioned that my friend and I work in the internet industry and they got excited and said we could eat and dive in exchange for helping them with their web business.

This is the best of clips with a little music from Beach House. Crystal Bay was “crystal” clear but Manta Point was a bit cloudy and it was very rough getting out there. But totally worth it!
