Lately it rains during the night and turns sunny by the morning.

Looks like it rained yesterday night, but it was a great sunny day today 🙂


Our French guests from Tokyo completed their OWD course successfully! Congratulations!


Enjoy safe and fun diving!


The first dive point of the day was Nobaru Arch, one of the seascape point of Iriomote.

In summer there are tons of Luminous Cardinalfish in the arches everywhere.


Innerspotted Sandgoby.


Water temperature is high, but there still are some nudibranchs.


Expert group went to deep dive around Nobaruzone for some big fish, but visibility was poor, and there was no fish…. 🙁


As a revenge dive, we went to Yonara Channel for the afternoon dive – visibility and current was good, but no manta…


This strong south wind is forecasted to stay for a while…
