We heard that there was another typhoon around Tokyo area… hope everyone was ok.

Here in Ishigaki it was another hot summer day, and the last day for some of our guests’ diving vacation 🙂 Unfortunately there was no manta in the past couple of days, and hope everyone will have another chance in the future!


As we had many guests with underwater cameras, we went for photo taking dives at each dive spots. Filament finned prawn goby is a great target for underwater photography. Did everyone get a good shot?


As the wind was coming from the north, we could not make it to Kabira manta point area. We went to Panari island for manta, but there was nothing… There were lots of other interesting sea life though!


The Whitetip reef shark of Nakamoto Cave is now around middle school age. Another preschooler is still shy, and was hiding at the back of the cave 🙂


Found a tiny Bubble coral shrimp on our way to the cave.


Juvenile Yellow boxfish is often found, but an adult is a bit rare.


Lots of diving bags are arriving everyday for guests diving with us for Obon-holiday next week 🙂

See you soon!
