Typhoon #3 is approaching Ishigaki, and expected to pass over the island tonight… But no problem with diving today, and the condition was good! We went for three dives around Ishigaki today♪

 

The first dive of the day was Nagura Bay Coral Garden. My favorite Pajama cardinalfish was out of its house 🙂

 

Whitetail dascyllus. They don’t grow too big, and the juveniles are very small. Very cute when they come out of coral branches at the same time 🙂

 

Some of the teams met the popular Green Turtle of Osaki.

 

A memorial shot with the turtle, before it started to take a nap (lol)

 

There are lots of sea life at Osaki Purple Queen Reef! A pare of Squat Shrimp. Father and son?

 

A Black-Spotted Moray.

岩の間からはニセゴイシウツボが。ちらっと見えている太い前歯・・・恐ろしい〜〜〜!

Met one manta at Manta City today! It did not hover around the cleaning station, but came back and forth, and passed very close by.

 

Typhoon #3 is forecasted to pass over Ishigaki tonight. Looks like a very small one, but stay safe!
