Three dives around Taketomi today.

And only white sand points 🙂

Patch corals are totally covered with Luminous cardinalfish.

Amazing!

 

Fusiliers are busy feeding on planktons.

 

Our guest today came back to Ishigaki for the first time, after his OWD course two years ago.

Glad you still remember everything!

 

Whitetail dascyllus.

Can be found everywhere, so we usually don’t spend much time looking at it closely.

It’s actually cute 🙂

 

Darkfin hind.

It’s vivid red body color is hard to tell without a torch.

 

Starry dragonet has a pretty small mouth.

 

Summer is the best season to dive at seascape points, particularly when the sun is right above us.

 

This Sea cucumber was huge…

Maybe over 80cm?

 

There is a tropical depression growing southeast, and moving towards us.

Probably it will turn rough around mid next week…
