It was supposed to be sunny and warm…

Ground temperature went up to 25C, but the wind started to blow from around noon with some rain.

The wind also turned north…

Water color is beautiful, but would be nice with blue sky 🙂

 

During winter access to Kabira is limited due to the seasonal north wind, but we managed to get there today.

Unfortunately no manta… Probably the season is over for this area.

We have better chance of manta encounter around Kuroshima area during this time of year.

Although there was no manta, we constantly see turtles around here these days♪

 

As the wind shifted north, we went to Nagura for our afternoon dive.

Nagura Bay is facing west toward Iriomote island, and is protected from most direction of wind.

We have beautiful corals and tons of beautiful small creatures around here♪

 

Our regular visitor today don’t mind 22C water temperature at all, and dived with shorty!

 

Even if you may be a bit nervous on the first day, you will get used to the water by day 3!

 

We will go down to Kuroshima tomorrow!
