Video: Spotted Eagle Rays In Bermuda’s Waters

August 31, 2016

A video captured by Edward Daniels shows spotted eagle rays swimming through Bermuda’s waters, offering a close up look at the protected species.

The spotted eagle ray [Aetobatus narinari] is most easily recognized by white spots on its black or bluish back [the ray’s main body is called the disc], and the underside is creamy or white.

It swims by “flying” through the water via the undulation of the pectoral fins, and is capable of leaping completely out of the water when pursued.

    We see these most days in Somerset Long Bay and around Daniels Head.
    They used to very common in Flatts Inlet as well. I saw one last weekend jump about 4′ out of the water.

    I just saw one of these while at Barr’s Park this morning. How blessed we are to live on an island where we can view the wildlife even in the city. Also encouraging to see the turtle numbers increasing.

    It appears I video taped the very same 3 spotted eagle rays on the shoreline from next to Black Watch Pass back in early July.
