It was pretty strong wind from south, the seasonal wind which we call “Kahchibai” in local language. Summer will come after this windy season finish 🙂

Lucky, no one had sea sickness from waves although it was pretty rough sea today.

We cruised out to Iriomote to enjoy beautiful corals on the reef and some underwater arches!

Tiny creatures are hiding inside corals.

You can see them watching you.

Many orange spotted filefish are always hiding in and out from coral. It is a bit difficult to focus camera.

Nemo in a big anemone.

A big lobster was hiding in arch!

Sunlight makes a beautiful blue window at the entrance of arch.

New open water divers! Congratulations!!!

Hopefully, the sea gets calmer tomorrow.
