Martina Ray was identified on October 1, 2004 about 2 miles off-shore the Kona Coast by James Wing.
On that day Martina Ray was being pursuit by a male manta that we call “St. James Ray“. Martina Ray is a pelagic manta ray. We have seen her only once, but because she roams the big ocean one day she might be spotted in a different part of the world, so keep an eye or two out for her.
Martina Ray’s namesake is Martina Wing, creator of this website.
