A Manta Ray sighting is one of the most breathtaking experiences a diver can have. Our PADI Video of the Week comes from Maui, Hawaii where Chris Cilfone dives with a school of Giant Oceanic Manta Rays. The video captures some beautiful close up shots and unique angles of the Manta Rays. The video was entirely shot off the HD HERO3 camera from GoPro.
