Diablo is named for Jason Keeffer, a senior dive master of the Kona Manta Ray dive and avid manta ray advocate. Jason has been doing Manta ray dives since 2002 and has done many dives at both Manta Village and Manta Heaven. Diablo was about 4 feet across and pretty shy. He was first identified in Keauhou Bay.
