his dive story…

Every now and then, we get lucky in our dives in West Caicos and the channel and catch a glimpse or more of a majestic spotted eagle ray or rays.

These are really beautiful looking creatures and very graceful in the water.

The spots on their back set them apart from other rays and mantas.

They actually compete with us eating mollusks and crustaceans which they crush with their teeth. Anyone for lobster? Hahaha!
