Comments: I discovered the manta flipping and swimming close to shore at Pokai Bay, she has been frequenting this location. She’s shy but once you gain her trust she gives you a beautiful show of barreling, furling and unfurling her fins and locking eye contact. She’s a sweet ray. She stayed for so long I was able to gather a little drone footage of her activity in the bay as well as my underwater video.
