Sea condition was calm only yesterday, and the wind started to pick up again 🙁

And the wind was north-ish, and we have to be careful in selecting dive points.

For today, we dived around the west side of Ishigaki, and saw variety of sea life, small to large♪

 

Here is a yellow Leaf scorpionfish.

 

Spotted prawn-goby.

 

Gold-barred Shrimp-goby.

 

Twospot turkeyfish.

 

Blacktail humbug.

 

And this is one of the most popular macro sea life for divers – Tomato clownfish.

 

For the second dive we cruised to Kabira area.

We almost gave up as the condition was very rough, but when we arrived there was Manta fever going on!

Right after we jumped in, we saw a Manta running (?) towards the cleaning station!

 

There were total of three mantas today♪

 

One was hovering around one cleaning station,  and then hopped onto another one.

 

They came right above us many times…

 

And the third dive was at quiet Sukuji bay.

Corals around here is stunning…

 

What would you like to see tomorrow?
