Jihane Ray

Jihane Ray was first identified at Manta Heaven on September 10, 2008 by Martina Wing. Her wingspan was approximately 6-8 feet.

She is a shy manta ray and on the rare occasions that we see her she prefers to stay on the outskirts of the “campfire”. If there is enough plankton she will venture into the midwater section of the dive site.
