It started off with cloudy sky today, and turned rainy by noon.

As the wind was blowing from the east, we dived around the west side of Ishigaki.

The first two dives were around our favorite Osaki area.

Water temperature was 22-23C, a touch colder than around Kuroshima yesterday, but the dives were great!

A Blue-spotted stingray was swimming over sand bottom looking for thing to eat 🙂

 

A Green turtle with a Shark sucker.

Shark sucker : “Aren’t you going to move?”

Turtle : “Why”

 

A Red lionfish hovering over corals.

Perfect neutral buoyancy!

 

Found a HUGE nudibranch!

This is Ardeadoris egretta, and usually around 1-2cm, but this one was around 8cm!!!

Beautiful? Creepy?

 

The view of Nagura bay around noon…

 

And under the water!

 

The rain is forecasted to stop tomorrow, but the wind is expected to turn north.
