Comments: Sean was diving with Brad Varney at Marty's Reef (South Maui) when they spotted this small female manta. Since they were diving on rebreathers, they were not making as much noise underwater. Sean was in front of Brad when Kilikini came over the reef - she swam slowly and peacefully by according to Sean, allowing them to get a good view, and some great shots.
