Sugar Ray is a male manta first sighted at
Ho'ona Bay /Garden Eels in August 2000. He was about 6-7' across when he was first
identified and probably quite young because his claspers were small and still
developing. He shows up regularly on the Kona Manta Ray Night Dive. In June 2002
he was the first manta ray tagged in a research project headed by Tim Clark of
the University of Hawaii.
