Linda Ray was identified on October 15, 2009 at Pawai Bay.
She travels up and down the Kona Coast and has been seen regularly at Manta Village as well as Manta Heaven. She has been conditioned to understand that the lights bring food and will barrel roll close to the surface with the snorkelers as well as divers. She is not shy at all.
Whenever divemaster Tara Brooke sees Linda Ray she is reminded of her mother who passed away a few years ago and always puts a smile on her face.
