OWD course in heavy rain

April 5, 2019


Ground Temperature:23℃
Water Temperature:25℃
Wind Direction:Northeast (5m/s)
Swell: 2m


Diving point (visibility)


☆ Nagura Bay Coral Garden, Ishigaki (5-10m)
☆ Slender Sweeper Reef, Taketomi (16m)
☆ Submarine, Taketomi (18m)


It poured from the morning. We sometimes have this type of heavy rain, and some of the roads get shut down. Usual amount of rain is ok, but with this type of heavy rain, water visibility around the port declines substantially.


Everyone had to squeeze to the covered area… But you can get wet with your wetsuits 🙂


We had OWD course day 1 at the beach, and day 2 on the boat. Our guests from HK successfully completed their OWD course today! Congratulations!


We also had AOWD course today. Practicing buoyancy control using your lung is one of the key skill you will learn.


Lots of guests from HK using their long weekend.

Thank you for joining our dive cruise, and hope to see you again!


There was a baby Manta in our last dive of the day! What a lucky day!


Hope it will be sunny!?
