It is the last day of New Year’s holiday, but the weather has not recovered… It was warmer than yesterday though.


We had the first swim-through of the year. Weather doesn’t really matter when we dive here…


Some of the swim throughs you cannot see the exit from the entrance point…


Scary? It is fun!


There were lots of Pyramid butterflyfish away from the reef area.


And there was a manta passing by… our OWD student saw it, but the instructor was focusing on the student and didn’t see…


Whitetip reef shark of Kuroshima. It has big nose holes. Sharks breath with its gills, but it has strong sense of smell using its nose.


Orangutan crab – it has fur all year round.


Feeling blue as work will be starting tomorrow?
