It was a cold day, but we cruised down to Kuroshima area, and had lots of fun! Our guests today were expert repeat diver and a couple from USA who just got certified as divers in Okinawa.


The expert team saw a manta at the first dive!




The beginner team missed the manta, but there were four Green Turtles, and it was the first time encounter for them!


After the first dive, we saw from the boat some back fins on the surface of water, so our beginner team jumped in with snorkeling gear, and saw two mantas very close!


During the following dives we all saw Giant Cuttlefish, Harlequin Ghost Pipefish, Razorfish, and Whitetip Reef Sharks! All first encounters for the beginner team!


Hope you enjoyed the dives!
