Beautiful sunny day, heading north to Kabira area for three dives♪


The first dive of the day was Sakieda Big Arch, located right next to Kabira area. Unfortunately cloud covered the sun when we went in, and there was not enough sunlight in the arch… But visibility was good!


The second dive was the famous Kabira Manta Scramble! Compared to Manta City, this dive point is much wider, and mantas, if any, tend to scatter around. Today, however, there were mantas everywhere!


Deep area to shallow area, mantas were everywhere!


There were three mantas swimming together on our way back to the boat♪ Encounter rate this season so far has been a bit unstable, and glad they are back!


The last dive of the day was Oganzaki North. We have not dive here for almost a year. We had enough sunlight in the arch this time♪


There are many different kinds of Anemonefish.


Dusky Nembrotha.



Hope the mantas will stay for the rest of the sason!
