Condition was better today, with less wind and calmer sea, so we cruised down to Taketomi, Kuroshima and Panari area 🙂

Blackspotted puffer usually has grey body, but some of them has yellow face.


Found a huge Painted spiny lobster…


Lots of Fusiliers too.


We did not see any Manta last week, but we finally saw some!


The first Manta in Reiwa era! Yes!


Some teams saw a big Whitetip reef shark.


We ended the dives today watching a Manta hovering around during our safety stop ♡


Clouds started to disappear, after we saw the mantas 🙂
