Comments: We saw the manta in south Maui with Mike Severns Diving in the late morning at a site called "Tank and Landing Craft" on July 17th, 2013. The day was clear, the seas calm with visibility of approximately 80-90 feet. Severns' crew and I estimated the manta to be about 16 feet across. She is named Boswell in memory of our beloved Boxer.
