It was clear in the morning, and ground temperature rose back to 20C♪

This is a much better day for diving!

We cruised down to Taketomi again for three dives, as we though the visibility there would be perfect.

And we were right!!!

 

Two friend joined together from different parts of Japan, to spend the new year holiday season together. Nice!

 

The Ribbon eel moved to a new home.

Maybe not used to the new house?

Looks a bit shy…

 

A False scorpionfish?

Found this boy taking a walk on the white sand area.

 

Found an alien…

It’s a cleaner shrimp.

 

My favorite Yellow boxfish!

But it was too small, and hiding in the corals today 🙁

 

Beautiful goby has beautiful eyes❤️

 

Highlight of the day was Tokakin Reef!

We dived there at ebb tide, and there was nice current.

Before we found Tokakin (Dogtooth tuna), we found this school of Barracuda!

Visibility was clear, and we saw their beautiful stripes!

 

We saw lots of Dogtooth tuna, including big fat ones, but a little too far for nice shots.

 

We will be diving around Ishigaki tomorrow♪
