Frazer’s thesis has been instrumental in the implementation of the Manta Ray Identification catalogue. His research has collected data on almost 800 different manta rays that visitors have the opportunity to interact with.
Col has been a member of the Coral Bay community for 15 years. Over this time he has been a quad bike tour leader and the skipper of the renowned Coral Breeze. He has a love of the ocean and an appreciation of all the creatures that inhabit it. He is a fountain of knowledge and is a well-respected and trusted skipper.
The lovely Vik joins our crew this year as our main deckhand and swimmer. Vikki is a certified PADI Dive instructor and has over 8 years’ experience with our beautiful mantas… she has coined the phrase ‘Manta Therapy’ and honestly believes (as we all do) that everyone needs to experience it regularly. She is passionate about protecting the reef for future generations and has implemented a Reef Check program for divers and snorkelers to report on the changing conditions of the reef and the marine life.
We are committed to working towards providing a fantastic experience for all of our customers while maintaining the importance of sustainability in the Marine Park for future generations.
