This giant beauty (around 18 feet) was seen on October 30, 2014 cruising over the drop off near Hoover’s Tower. She spent several minutes doing figure eights in front of us before heading straight out into the blue. I’d like to name her ‘JK Ray’ in memory of Jan Kawakami and Kenny Schneider who are great friends, great divers, and great people.
