South wind was very strong today! So we cruised north to avoid the wind and chops.

The first dive point of the day was Taketomi North. This point is famous for a huge Pavona Clavus Coral reef, and usually the water around here is murky. However, the visibility was rather good today, and we could capture the coral reef with wide lens 🙂


Although it is not colorful, cabbage corals around here is actually beautiful.


The second dive point of the day was Sakieda Big Arch, located near Sukuji Bay. Once all dead, corals around here showed amazing recovery!


Inside of the big arch was full of Luminous Cardinalfish 🙂


And finally, we saw a Manta!

Not sure when we saw it the last time…


I’m sure I will dream of Manta tonight 🙂
