We had only three experienced divers today, so we tried the first Yonara drift dives of 2019♪



Tide was not good on the first dive, and there was no current, and no fish 🙁

Well, let’s take it as a warm up 🙂


The current started to pick up right at the time of second dive, and there were three mantas!


And one of them showed its elegant swim right in front of us!


You can see how big it was …


The third dive was at Nobaru Drop Off, and enjoyed beautiful coral and seascape.
