Swimming with gentle giants at the Georgia Aquarium

Aired on April 30, 2013

Tonya enjoyed an afternoon dive at the Georgia Aquarium with Nandi the Manta Ray from South Africa and several whale sharks and other species. You can spot Tonya by her long brown pony tail and her “hang loose” hand signs. Scuba diving is like water ballet–very graceful. This video was filmed by the Georgia Aquarium dive team.
