Jay Ray

Jay Ray was identified on September 5, 2007 by Martina Wing at Manta Heaven. We see him most often when the plankton is abundant.

At the beginning of the dive he usually stays on the outskirts of the action but as the night progresses Jay becomes bolder, closer and right over the divers heads. He cares less for the action and barrel rolling below the snorkelers.
