Drifting Through Manta Fest

Story and Photos by Tim Rock

Today we did a wild  5-in-1 drift starting at Magic Kingdom and ending at Yap Caverns and Lionfish Wall. Ai did some nice snorkeling in the Cavern Crevices and then we headed to Millennium.

Photographers are starting to compile a nice portfolio of images as the dives continue. The macro images have been great with lots of various nudibranchs. Plus lots of great shark stuff.

We say good-bye tomorrow to Frank Schneider of Tauchen Magazine and his model Leda. It has been fun to hear his tales of the dive world and shoot some sharks with him. Manta’s Ray’s German rep Daniel Brinkman has been escorting Frank to the best places and they have turned out some amazing images.

Tonight is the “Human Auction”, which probably involves beer, and most great slideshows from the pros and videos from Manta Visions’ Peter Schneider.

More tomorrow!!
