It was the first dive cruise of this week♪

… but was a cold day! Water temperature was down to 20C at some point, and felt the coldest in the past 10 years!

But visibility was great, and lots of great stuff to see!

 

There were Mantas around Kuroshima!

 

Probably around 4-5 of them, and they stayed around us for a while!

 

We also saw a Swordfish!

Its dorsal fin was not open so it looked a bit  small, but it is very rare around here nonetheless.

 

It is forecasted to be warmer tomorrow! Great!
