Ryan Leinbach identified "Kris Hen-Ray" during a daytime snorkel on December 9, 2010. He is about 7 to 8 feet wide and his claspers are very visible. Kris Hen-Ray was feeding in a current line just past Keahole Point and let Ryan get close enough for these identification shots. He is named after our friend and boat operator Kris Henry with "Sea Hawaii Rafting".
