“Hihimanu”, the spotted eagle ray, is very sacred to the Hawaiian people. “Guardians of the reef”.
Hihimanu is also the name of the lefthand portion of the triad of mountains that stand like great sentinels behind Hanalei Town and our Bali Hai Realty office.
Here is an amazing video taken by Marine Biologist Terry Lilley while diving here on the North Shore of Kauai. This beautiful, ancient creature seemed to know that Terry was there to protect the sacred reef and actually did something very special. The Hihimanu, eagle ray, gave Terry a most special gift. And he caught it all on film! Please watch this incredible video:
