GuillermoPorter came across this male manta while diving at Pebble Beach in South Kona at the bottom of the Kona Paradise subdivision. He was being cleaned on the north side of the beach, and spent several minutes swimming circles and doing one loop apparently reacting to a bite from one of the cleaner wrasse. Guillermo stayed quite close, not showing hesitation when approaching the divers.
