Jolene Ray

Meet Jolene Ray was first identified on May 8, 2017 by Chad Barga. She became accustomed to the lights fast and seems friendly around the snorkelers during the manta experience. Close-ups are not a problem as she loves to eat the plankton near the surface.

    My daughter and I met and swam with Jolene Ray in the evening of November 21, 2022, along the coast at Kona. The water was chilly but we didn’t get cold for a long while because of the excitement and beauty of this creature as it glided by us practically brushing against us as it circled collecting plankton. This is an experience we wouldn’t have been able to enjoy any place except there with Manta Ray Advocates. Martina’s briefing and training before entering the water was thorough and the equipment provided was flawless. We would highly recommend this adventure as an opportunity to see the grace and beauty of these Manta Ray.
