Deep Blue Divers | 2019 June Highlights

Have you ever seen a manta mating train? Our June highlights video features footage of this amazing phenomenon where females gracefully swoop and do barrel rolls to see which males are able to keep up with her. Enjoy as well the chilled-out turtles, sharks and eagle rays who also filled our dives with joy this month!

Scuba diving in the Maldives in Laamu atoll is very special – since there are no other dive operators or liveaboards around we almost guaranteed have the dive site for ourselves.
