This manta was first sighted January 21 2015. I'd like to name her Gramma Bo after my grandmother. I was on with Wicked Wahine with Capt Tim Connors. We found this ray swimming in the current line in the area of Ono Lane between Royal Kona Hotel and Tikis. The markings look like a person with wide open arms and a big heart in the middle and I find it only fitting because that's who my grandmother was.
