The

Manta Rays

of the

Kona Coast of Hawaii

Each manta ray has a unique spot pattern on its underside which allows us to identify and monitor them. Over the last 20 years, we have been compiling this database of individuals.

Additionally, we reviewed those sightings statistically and you can learn more about how the data was collected in this article.

To those who wish to discover more about the manta rays along the West side of the Big Island, we invite you to browse our library collection of pictures, video clips, descriptions, and stories.
