The last day of the new year holiday.

We cruised up to the west side of Ishigaki for three dives.

Looks like Anemonefish just had their new year family gathering 🙂

 

Banded coral shrimp – red and white is the new year holiday season color ♪

 

Almost new year color – juvenile African coris.

 

Lots of nudibranchs.

It’s their season now!

 

We went to Osaki to say hi to the Green turtles there.

“Happy new year!”

 

There was a big Barracuda on the slope.

This type of Barracuda tends to be alone.

 

A big White-spotted puffer swam across us.

 

It was the last day of one of our guest’s new year vacation. It started with rough weather and cancellation of our cruise, followed by a survival dive in choppy condition, but the dives thereafter were nice 🙂 Also completed EAD course successfully! Congratulations!
