The first Manta encounter :-)

April 4, 2019


Weather:Cloudy sometimes rainy
Ground Temperature:25℃
Water Temperature:24℃
Wind Direction:East southeast (8m/s)
Swell: 2.5m


Diving point (visibility)


☆ Potato Reef, Taketomi (18m)
☆ Osaki Lionfish Palace, Ishigaki (16m)
☆ Manta City, Ishigaki (14m)


Weather was not great, but we had full of guests on the boat, with full of high expectations 🙂


We have over 100 cruise ships visiting Ishigaki every year and the number is rising. This is AIDA Bella, going around southeast Asia including Ishigaki, Taiwan and Shanghai. Cute design!


We had a German family joining us from AIDA Bella. They couldn’t see any Mantas when they dived in Maldives, and their expectation is high today!


And they made it! Although the Mantas didn’t stay too long, they showed a flip dance in front of us before they left!


Thank you for joining our dive cruise, and bon voyage!
