Location ID'ed: Pokai Bay

Comments: At Pokai bay, very close to the entrance of Waianae boat harbor in Ohau, I found her swimming alone in the murky shallow water about 12 feet depth. I was with 20 other tourists and we all jumped in the water from the tour boat. She was really friendly and swim around us for more than 20min. It is very rare to meet with Manta Ray in Oahu, so we were so excited with this playful huge friend on this day.
