Congratulations for new Open Water Diver and Scuba Diver! Enjoy safe and fun dives!
The first dive of the day was Nagura Bay. You can often see Reticulated dascyllus and Whitetail dascyllus hiding in and out of the same coral reef.
Around this time of year, there are lots of juvenile fusiliers swimming around the surface.
Some of the team saw this huge Blotched Fantail Ray, coming out from the deep!
We had guests from four different countries today! It is one of the unique thing about Prime Scuba Ishigaki, that we have guests from all over the world.
Our Swedish guest today studied Japanese in college, and was speaking much better Japanese than some of our native staff (^ ^;
We looked around for mantas at the manta point today, but there was no manta…
As the wind shifted to the east, we cruised down to Osaki area to escape from the wind. There were lots of sea goldie, Peach fairy basslet, etc.
Turtles are easy to find these days than mantas 🙂
In addition to couple of Green turtles, we saw this Hawksbill turtle today! The difference from the Green turtle is its beak, that looks like one of a hawk.
Our guest from UK enjoyed our DSD program 🙂
Looking forward to a sunny day again!
