Assateague Island – Gigantic Oceanic Manta Ray Spotted Breaching

Annaka & David Ocean City MD Beach Wedding 2017

A Beautiful, Nature-Filled Beach Wedding on Assateague Island

Assateague Island is most known for the wild ponies that roam the sandy beaches and campsites. Visitors come from around the world to enjoy the camping offered by Assateague Island.  Guests and locals love to watch the ponies and take some great pictures of course while maintaining a safe distance.

Another beautiful creature was just spotted on Assateague Island.  This time a little further out into the ocean.  A Gigantic Oceanic Manta Ray was seen breaching just off the coast of the Maryland Beach.  This amazing animal can stretch up to 23 feet across and weigh as much as 6600 pounds.

Giant Manta Rays travel throughout the world in different oceans and temperatures of water.  Similar to large whales, Giant Mantas feed mostly on plankton.  Their only real threat is that of coastal fishermen.

Again come to Assateague for the ponies, however, you never know what you might find in this beautiful beach vacation spot.
