St. James Ray

St. James Ray was identified on October 1, 2004 by James Wing while 2 miles off-shore along the Kona Coast. The story being told is that St. James Ray was in “hot pursuit” of a female Manta that we call “Martina Ray“.

St. James Ray is a pelagic manta ray. We have seen him only once. Because he roams the big ocean, he may be spotted in a different part of the world one day. Be sure and keep a look out.
