Wind blew from South and ground temperature went up to 26 C. It was like summer today.
You just need T-shirt and short pants and the best part is that hay fever bothers people all around Japan in this season but not in Ishigaki!

We dived in Tuna Point again as we didn’t get many tunas yesterday. The water visibility was great and so many fusiliers as well!

We got to see some tuna and barracuda. But we feel there are less of them this year. It might be because of higher water temperature compared to other years.

We found a longnose hawkfish at 2nd dive in Nagura bay. It is one of the most popular but really rare hawkfish.


We found another rare fish, Yellow color Giant Frogfish as he moved. They are too good camouflage to be found.


Giant cuttlefish season now. There are normally many boats and divers around this area but it was only us today! We could take time to watch them so close.
They gather at some areas in Ishigaki between January to April for mating and laying eggs.

It was a great & lucky day!
