South wind and north swell is a bad combination here.

It was hard to find a quiet dive point, as most of the dive points were affected either by the wind or the swell.

But with us, no problem 🙂

We enjoyed nice and safe three dives, although it was a bit swelly.


We dived deep for this Squarespot anthias, and this one is a female.

Males are popular with their square spots, but this one is beautiful nonetheless.


Similar color combination, but a different fish – Hawkfish anthias.


A school of Purple queen.


A beautiful juvenile Lionfish.

Less than 3cm in length.


A boxer crab is a cheer leader 🙂


“Hey, it’s free! Try our cleaning!”

I saw this somewhere – I guess it was in Shinjuku.


No manta at the Manta City again…

Where are you?


Clownfish is always friendly to divers 🙂

Thank you Claire for joining our dive cruise for three days!

Looking forward to having you back again!


Typhoon Campi (#5) is down south around Ogasawara, but will probably have no impact here in Ishigaki 🙂
