Weather has been mixed until yesterday, but it was a nice day with clear blue sky and only soft breeze♪

It is already June, and we are now in the mid-rainy season.

It is forecasted to rain tonight 🙂

 

 

The first dive of the day was Tokakin Reef, famous dive point for Dogtooth tuna.

Although the water temperature is rising and it will be out of season, we still have them around!

We had nice current, and the tunas were gathering around the area.

 

The second dive was a research dive.

As we had only one guest today and he is a heavy repeater, we went to a dive point we never dived before.

This dive point has some big reef and had some nice current.

There were lots of fusiliers and Pyramid butterfly, but no big fish 🙁

We need a little more research here 🙂

 

We went to Potato Reef for a relaxing afternoon dive.

 

Scarlet cleaner shrimp was busy cleaning many fish.

Big and small fish were lining up there, waiting for the cleaning spa 🙂

 

Tomato hind was getting its regular cleaning♪

 

Lots of Blue-lined snappers were covering the coral reef.

 

We stayed down there almost 60min, until we ran out of air (lol)

 

Typhoon Choi Wan was born yesterday around Philippines yesterday, and now it is moving north.

It is forecasted to approach around the weekend.

COVID, Choi Wan… Let’s stay safe!
