This enormous manta ray was just cruising, ever so slowly, across the top of the reef through the Suck ‘em Up and Aquarium dive sites. She passed a few different groups of divers along the way giving each of us a huge thrill! We estimate her wing span to be around 22 feet. I’d like to name her Dola Ray in honor of Jordan Davis’ mom, a woman who’s strength and bravery is truly an inspiration.
