“We need the tonic of wildness…At the same time that we are earnest to explore and learn all things, we require that all things be mysterious and unexplorable, that land and sea be indefinitely wild, unsurveyed and unfathomed by us because unfathomable. We can never have enough of nature.”  ― Henry David Thoreau, Walden

Hahalua Flying Manta Ray Earrings to set your spirit free day or night.  Wear the tonic of the wilderness in a petite two-sided totem, complete with gills and tail. Manta Rays rule the blue – these beautiful manta rays will complete your outfit with style and shine.

Hāhālua – Manta Rays

Manta Rays are very special to us at ‘Alohi Kai. Diving on the south shore of Oahu, we spotted a beautiful juvenile manta ray coming straight at us. Read our blog for the story on how we came to have a young manta ray off Oahu named ‘Alohi Kai!

Despite their enormous size, Mantas don’t eat big fish, but rather filter feed on plankton. Reef mantas, as we have in Hawaii, can attain 18 ft (distinct from the giant pacific mantas that get much bigger). Our mantas tend to stay close to shore, which partly helps protect them from large predators like sharks. Manta Rays have the largest brains of any fish, and they reproduce slowly – sadly populations continue to decline, much due to pollution and erosion of habitat. Some estimates say they can live 50-100 years. More information. Status: Vulnerable.
