Delaney Ray was identified on August 23, 2008 by Scott Blain at Manta Heaven. Back then she was about 6 feet wide and most often seen at Manta Heaven with the occasional visit to Manta Village.
In the summer of 2011 she became comfortable with the bubbles and started coming close to the divers’ lights to feed. Today Delaney is a very reliable manta and we know she is not shy and will give people a great show.
