HARLEQUIN SHRIMPS!

HARLEQUIN SHRIMPS, Raja Ampat

Blessed with lots and lots Manta Rays we almost forgot about all the critters we found on this trip – beautiful Nudibranchs, rare Pipefish and a stunning pair of Harlequin Shrimps, a rare find in this part of the world!Busy with their latest catch, a pair of legs from an unfortunate seastar, they didn’t mind us at all. 

Wayag, Raja Ampat

But yes, the Mantas the Mantas…. On no less than nine dives we were lucky enough to enjoy their company. We saw them feeding at the surface, being cleaned or just playing around like they do. Pretty sure this Raja Ampat safari will go down as the ”Manta Trip” in most people’s logs.

Good weather throughout the trip certainly added to the experience.
