Typhoon Maria is approaching every minute. But can you tell from this beautiful picture???

But it is coming. And we had only two dives today, and the boat went to safe harbor in preparation for the typhoon.


Visibility was unusually low… but once you are in the water, you could still see lots of sea life rather clearly.


Looks hazy, but there were lots of Longfin batfish around today.


Tons of Luminous cardinalfish!


Anemone shrimp and Squat shrimp relaxing on the coral bed 🙂


A turtle dozing off. Hey, get ready for the typhoon!


Impressively white teeth of Whitemouth moray.


Nudibranch has colorful stripe even on its tummy 🙂


Ishigaki port will be closed from this afternoon, in preparation for the approach of typhoon Maria.

Hope it will pass quickly. We have lots of guests waiting to dive!
