Great thing about diving with Prime Scuba Ishigaki is that, with our 60ft diving boat Blue Swan, we cover wide area of Yaeyama islands.

Today we visited three islands of Yaeyama – Taketomi, Panari and Kuroshima.


There was mild current at Taketomi, and Bluestriped snappers were trying to swim against the current.


We cruised down to Panari for our second dive – Ryugu Reef.


Visibility was low, because there were too many Luminous cardinalfish!


Water visibility was very high…


Longnose hawkfish around here can be found at shallow reef area.


The last dive of the day was Kuroshima – our favorite place for seascape diving.


Which islands shall we go tomorrow?
