Vinny Ray was identified on July 31, 2006 at Manta Heaven. He was about 4 feet across.
He was shy at first, but has been a major star at the Manta Experience. This manta ray loves both the snorkelers and divers.
Pure speculation, but Vinny Ray might be Big Bertha’s pup from 2006. Vinny Ray was sighted shortly after Big Bertha was not pregnant anymore and he also has similar markings on his belly.
We named this manta ray after our friend “Vinny” – captain and dive instructor Mike Vines.
DESCRIPTION OF MARKINGS
Vinny Ray is easily identified by a “V” and “I” on his underside.
