Lake Michigan, the second largest of the Great Lakes of North America by volume and the third largest by surface area, is actually the only one located entirely within the United States. With its basin conjoining with that of Lake Huron to the east and having the same surface elevation, Lake Michigan and Lake Huron are technically a single lake. The large size of the Lakes and the fact that they are prone to sudden and harsh storms increases the risk of water travel and has led hundreds of ships to their end.
- ABOUT THE SPOT
Scuba Diving in Manta Reef, Tofo Beach, Inhambane Mozambique
Manta Reef in Tofo Beach offers a phenomenal world class scuba diving opportunity. Located at 22 km/13 mi away from the shore, it was discovered in the 1960’s and has since become popular with biologists, photographers and divers worldwide. It is a gentle drift dive from north to south with dive depths ranging between 21-26 m/69-85 ft. The dive begins with a negative entry into 26 m/85 ft into the middle of a small turf, crammed with life.
Further on as the dive progresses, it is a series of pinnacles before you get to the first cleaning station at a shallow of 21 m/69 ft depth where mantas roam overhead to be cleaned by goldies, cleaner wrasse and butterfly fish. The visibility stands between 10-30 m/33-98 ft and this site is fit for the advanced diver. This is a must do in your list as the experience will mark your memory, especially as you end your dive upwards, accompanied by curious school of devil rays, wheeling about your safety spot.
