Condition was fine in the morning with only mild wind, but it turned windy and rough in the afternoon 🙁

Diving was fine though, and we cruised down to the winter manta point of Panari!


We have not dived at Panari for a while, and wasn’t sure if there were any mantas around… but there were two mantas from the beginning of the dive ’till the end!


Lots of shots with the mantas!


We had total of six guests today from Japan as well as overseas, but all for one day diving. Glad you all could see mantas!
