Manta Ray Snorkel P.M.

Adults Price: $101.81 - Members Price: $101.81
Rays are most often encountered as solitary individuals, but members of this species, when feeding, often aggregate up to 50 individuals, cluster in regions offering predictably rich feeding at night (such as off the Kona Surf Hotel). The cephalic lobes are unfurled and spread (directing and sometimes apparently scooping plankton-bearing water into the mouth). The animal often swimming in slow somersaults (vertical loops) that are repeated over and over (this behavior may keep the rays within a patch of particularly rich feeding, and may also concentrate plank tonic prey to facilitate feeding); and off Yap, in the western Caroline Islands).
