It was supposed to rain today, but it didn’t. This is how unpredictable the weather is at the end of the rainy season.

 

The first dive today was at Nagura bay coral garden. Great dive point for expert photo divers as well as Discover Scuba Diving guests.

 

First time diving? No problem!

 

If you are first time diving in Ishigaki, got to go to the manta point! Going to the manta point is one thing, but seeing a manta is something else, and unfortunately we do not have control over the behavior of mantas… Diving is all about nature, and there are some unlucky days 🙁

But don’t be discouraged. Take a look around, and you will always find something beautiful.

 

Standard routine around Kabira area – lunch at Sukuji bay. Surrounded by beautiful scenery and total silence, this is priceless…

 

The last dive of the day was at Sakieda big arch. Starry dragonet – I love its cute mouth.

 

Nembrotha kubaryana – quite common around this area.

 

As you gain more experience, you can find some interesting sea life everywhere.

 

And I love this! Dog-Face Pufferfish, aka Seal-Face Pufferfish.

 

Well, is the rainy season over now?
