It felt warmer than yesterday, with some sunshine on and off during the day today♪

We cruised down to Taketomi and Kuroshima today for three dives.

The first dive was at Buddha Head of Taketomi.

As usual, the coral was covered with Blue green chromis!

Breathtaking view!

 

What are you taking…?

 

It was a juvenile Lionfish!

Beautiful translucent body!

 

Check out the small fish living in patch corals around the area, and you will find this blue one – Blue tang, or Dory!

 

Turkey moray can be commonly found around here.

 

During winter, mantas come around Kuroshima to feed on plankton.

Today we found many swimming around the area, and we could even spot them from the boat♪

 

Also, there were lots of Indian mackerels chasing after plankton!

I like their face, when they have their mouth wide open.

Check our FB page for the video clip!

 

Day 2 of our OWD course went well, and the mission completed!

Congratulations!

 

What shall we aim for tomorrow?

Winter manta? Indian mackerels? Giant cuttlefish?
