Took a little long cruise today to Iriomote for three dives 🙂

Nobaru arches were covered by Luminous cardinalfish!

 

Super sunny, super beautiful day! Iriomote looks like Japanese Jurassic Park… No worries, there is no T rex!

 

The first dive of the day was seascape dive. Beautiful sun beam moving gently in the water… this is breathtaking!

 

Japanese Mitten Lobster is very rare.

 

The second dive was Barasu west – a secret dive point that we seldom come. Corals around here is just amazing…

 


Lots of crabs and shrimps in the corals. Eyes of Coral hermit crab look like mirror balls.

 

Lunch break at Hatoma Island, on the north of Iriomote.

 

The last dive of the day was near Yonara coral village, near Yonara channel. Current was picking up and getting stronger, but we managed to swim to the shallow sand area. We saw lots of Slender sweeper and many other fish, but quite exhausting…

 

Take a good rest, and get ready for tomorrow!
