Uhane Nui was identified on August 12, 2007 at Manta Heaven by Ryan Leinbach. At this time he was 5 feet across.
Uhane Nui means “Great Spirit” in Hawaiian. He needed some time to get used to bubbles and lights and he eventually overcame this fear. We have enjoyed his presence many times at the site where he comes close to divers and snorkelers.
DESCRIPTION OF MARKINGS
Uhane Nui has a very distinct “U” on his belly.
