Today we cruised down southwest around Kuroshima again, as everyone was requesting for Manta!

For Manta, we visited the Manta Point of Panari Island, located right on the west of Kuroshima.

Panari has cleaning stations for Mantas, and we can often see them during winter to spring.


Looks like the mantas are busy for the year end events, and it passed by quickly without stopping at the cleaning station…

Well, at least we met them!


Visibility was super clear everywhere!

Mind the depth…


This baby moves around quickly, and was hard to take a clean shot.


Our guest was taking a close-up photo of a Longfin snake-eel.

Eel : “Make sure to tag me on instagram!”


Orangutan crab today was very shy…


Mantas are always popular, but these beautiful nudibranchs are popular among underwater photographers.


Jakub joined our dive cruise for 4 days, after refresher course.

Hope you had fun!


There is no typhoon around here, but the north wind is forecasted to pick up to typhoon class tomorrow…
