I Spent 2 Hours Scuba Diving In Thailand, Here Are My 21 Best Photos Of Manta Rays



My Name is Daniel Sasse, I’m an award-winning underwater photographer. I protect, defend and conserve the marine environment. With my pictures, I want to show people how beautiful but also how fragile the underwater world is all at the same time. It is so important to protect our oceans because every second breath you take is produced by oceans.

To take these pictures, I used a Sony NEX7 Camera in an underwater housing with 2 external strobes. These are the best pictures of a two-hour scuba dive I did at Hin Daeng, a dive site in the Andaman sea in Thailand.

The giant oceanic manta ray (Manta birostris) is an endangered species in the family Mobulidae and the largest type of ray in the world. It can grow to a disc size of up to 7 m (23 ft) with a weight of about 1,350 kg (2,980 lb) but the average size commonly observed is 4.5 m (15 ft). They are filter feeders and consume large quantities of zooplankton in the form of shrimp, krill, and planktonic crabs.
