Dive Guides Unhook Fishing Line from Manta


Dive guides at Koh Lanta in Thailand found a manta snared in fishing line and were able to get close enough to gently unhook the attached lines. 


The delighted manta gave the guides a swim-by as it swam off.


Back on board the Scubacat dive boat, Safari, one of the guides who rescued the manta, shows the lines.

Photographs by Magnus Larsson -  the photo pro at Scubafish in Koh Lanta. You can see a full portfolio of his work plus a guide to diving in Koh Lanta in the Winter 2017 edition of DIVE.
