Unfortunately the water was a bit murky everywhere…

We were planning to go to Osaki after the first dive at Nagura Bay, but we gave up as the visibility was not great.

So we cruised further to Sukuji Bay.

Bad visibility means there are lots of food for the fish though.

So we saw lots of Fusilier and Indian Mackerel around 🙂

 

Lots of Indian Mackerel were swimming around busily with their mouth wide open, feeding on…

… something.

 

Swimming over the carpet of corals…

Priceless!

 

Painted spiny lobster.

With its big antenna, it looks very masculine, but it was less than 10cm long 🙂

 

Square-spot fairy basslet, with a spot that is not exactly “square”.

But you are still beautiful though!

 

Typhoon Chai-wan is moving north through Philippines, and is forecasted to weaken to a tropical cyclone.

Probably it will not be anything serious by the time it arrives at Ishigaki, but will likely remain rainy around here.

 

We will have no guests for couple of days, and will do some maintenance on our boat.

See you soon!
