There is more than mantas in Ishigaki…
June 24, 2021
Weather：Cloudy then sunny
Wind Direction：Southwest (8m/s)
Diving point (visibility)
☆ Osaki Sand Garden, Ishigaki (13m)
☆ Sukuji Bay Gurukun Reef, Ishigaki (18m)
☆ Manta City, Ishigaki (25m)
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 🙂
