Jackie Ray was first seen on the afternoon dive at Garden Eel Cove and is named after Manta Pacific Research Foundation's newest Board member, Jackie Hogan. Jackie Ray was swimming back and forth along the drop off. Over the course of an hour, she was seen by more than one group of divers from more than one boat. She wasn't frightened away, but she didn't linger with the divers either.
