Typhoon Haishen is approximately 700km east of Ishigaki.

For a normal typhoon it is too far to have any impact on Ishigaki, but not this one. We had big swells and the condition was rough!

So we cruised down south to Taketomi, to avoid the wind and swells.


Peacock wrasse is a very nervous fish, and you need to move very very slow, to get a close shot.


Although the condition up on the surface of water is rough, it was very calm in the water 🙂


Sea snakes were wondering which direction they should go…


“You shouldn’t go out! Typhoon is coming!”


“Which way should I go? Up or down?”


Our guest from Tokyo today was certified as OWD in July at Prime Scuba Ishigaki, and returned for a diving vacation 🙂


And these guests were certified as OWD just last month at Izu!

How do you like Ishigaki diving?


Unfortunately we had to cancel our afternoon program due to the wind and swells.

We will be closed until Tuesday, and will be back on Wednesday.

Stay safe everyone!
