Ke'kai'malu means "Peaceful Ocean". When Martina first saw him at Garden Eel Cove, he was about 5' wide. He was shy at first and stayed on the outskirts, but he made his way to the "high traffic area" (with 9 other Mantas) after 30 minutes of the dive and checked on the food close to the bubbles and lights.
