Koie Ray

Let’s meet Koie Ray. This beautiful manta ray was identified on August 17, 2001 at Manta Heaven and about 7 feet across. She is one of Kona’s staple mantas and today 12-14 feet wing tip to wing tip.

Koie Ray has no fear of being close to divers and snorkelers. She mostly feeds at Manta Heaven and will go to Manta Village when the plankton leads her there.
