Moana is extremely smart. Before he turned one he could already do behaviors other orcas his age couldn't and does many behaviors that take others years to learn. Many of the behaviors he has learned by simply watching the other orcas at the park and doing what they do. Among these, he has learned to do back bows, underwater somersaults, a traveling breach, and much more. Many he wouldn't have even trained for until he was at least a few years old.

Moana can be seen performing with the entire group or even doing some parts of the show by himself. He is independant, but is still close to his mom. In November 2013, Moana became a big brother when Wikie gave birth to her second calf, Keijo. In December 2014, Kalia gave birth to his younger sister, Amaya, at SeaWorld San Diego. He enjoys spending time with Inouk and Keijo.
