Image by James Wiseman 2002/10/13
This ray is named after Kona tri-athlete and scuba dive guide Andrea A-Bay A-Bay. Like her name-sake, this manta ray Andrea is a healthy, beautiful, and young female. She was first identified at the Kona Surf on the night of Sept. 29, 1997. Her chest markings look similar to those of the male Hook, but Andrea is a young female about 7’ across.
