Our dives today were around Kayama and Iriomote islands, around 40min cruise west from Ishigaki. It was a beautiful sunny day with great water visibility 🙂


The first dive around Kayama Island. There was an Octopus around the reef, staring at us…


The arch of this dive point is only around 5m deep, and will have plenty of sun light 🙂


There were three divers looking at something right outside of the arch…


They were looking at this Yaeyama blenny!


We only had experienced divers today, and the tide was good… So we had to dive here!


Yonara Channel!!! Visibility was over 30m, and there was moderate current. We saw total of five mantas!


After swimming a lot at Yonara Channel, we had slow and relaxing dive around seascape and coral point of Yonara Island. There are two arches at Nobaru drop off, and both of them were getting filled up by lots of small fish such as Luminous cardinalfish.


Gorgeous prawn goby.


Graceful Anemone Shrimp taking lunch.


While at safety stop, we felt someone was watching us…


It will be full house from tomorrow 🙂
