It was cloudy all day from the morning.

Hot and humid.

But it was very comfortable under the water 🙂


Red-spotted porcelain crab was trying to hide, but but it was a bit too big for the anemone.


We found a Giant cuttlefish at Osaki!


Our guest today visited us last November and we celebrated the 200th memorial dive.

And he is almost 300 dives now.

100 dives in four months???

Honestly, you may have dived more than some of our staff (lol)



We went to Kabira Manta City for the third dive.


Encounter rate this time of year around Kabira is generally not high, but we saw one 🙂

It didn’t hover around the cleaning station, but wondered around us for a while.


Memorial shot with a Green turtle 🙂

12 and 10 year old boys met a manta and a turtle on their first ever dive experience!

Looking forward to welcoming you on our OWD program!
