Dive with Manta Rays in the Maldives

Short video feathering a variety of footage of manta rays shot by Jana in the Maldives.

Jana and Sandy had the amazing opportunity to dive with manta rays in the Maldives in August 2016. On the final dive they spent 45 minutes with a manta at a feeding station and shot so much footage it was hard to decide what to include in the edit! Filming was on the PMW-200 HD XDCAM camera with a Gates housing and SP44 Super Wide Angle Port. Even with the wide lens, it was hard when the manta came close to keep the whole of the animal in the frame as they are huge!
