We could not see any manta in the past couple of cruises, but today was different, and there were mantas from the beginning ’till the end!


Our guests today were from all over the world as usual, and half the guests for DSD program, so the first two dives of the day were at Taketomi and Osaki area, for relatively easy and relaxing dives.


No big fish around here, but lots of macro creatures. Here is an Arrowhead crab.


Leaf scorpionfish is always stuck in between the reef.


Mosquito bite? This Green turtle was scratchings its head on the coral, and didn’t pay any attention to us at all 🙂


Our guest family from Spain♪ They joined our DSD program together, and it was the first time diving for the brothers. Want to get certified next time?


The last dive of the day was Manta City, with strong requests from everyone…


After couple of days with no manta, there were two mantas from the beginning ’till the end! Mantastic!


While everyone was enjoying the graceful dance of the mantas over the reef, one of the suddenly had a big poo! Holy smokes! Looks like he didn’t go to toilet for several days!


Glad everyone enjoyed the dive cruise! Please come dive with us again!
