R.A.C. Point

A local favorite, this site is a gorgeous mix of coral, rock, and sandy bottom formations. The name R.A.C. Point actually came from the founder of Manta Bowl, Rico A. Calleja.

There are many areas to hide from the current and to watch the reef come to life. A number of reef fish make this area their home. There are also mantas and passing Whale Sharks here.
