This is the incredible moment that several giant manta rays put on a dancing performance for a group of divers, mere inches above their heads.

Captured on film just off the shore of mainland Hawaii, in August, these massive mantas put on a stellar performance for divers as they swished, swooped and barrel rolled above their heads.

The fever of mantas mirror and manoeuvre with one another in perfect harmony, coming together belly-to-belly and arching back over on themselves during an unprecedented, mesmeric display.

One manta gets a little too close for comfort however as it plummets towards Jenna Spesard, an avid explorer who captured the encounter on film, with its mouth gaping, nearly swallowing her whole.

Jenna, from Welches, Oregon, USA said: “I’ve never seen anything like this before, it was simply amazing.”
