Only on the big island can this amazing spectacle be viewed by humans up close. Garden Eel Cove in front of the Kona Airport is where we anchored up. At first you feel amazed at what is taking place, only to think the action is so far away from me. Then you get the show of a lifetime. I think one of the rays thought the red light on my camera was food. Stay still is my advice, because the rays have a tendency to sneak up behind you as seen in the video. There were about 14-12 rays. Ranging in size from what seemed like a 19-18ft wingspan, to 12-14ft smaller ones. Enjoy.
