Weather is slowly turning into that of autumn, but it was sunny and calm♪

Today we cruised down southwest towards Kuroshima and Panari.

The air was so clear, and we could even see Hateruma Island far away.


The first dive point of the day was around Taketomi island for a warm up.

Lots of Luminous Cardinalfish was covering the reef.


A juvenile Diamond Filefish.

Good camouflage!


Whitecap Goby with a roommate Red Spotted Snappy Shrimp.


We haven’t dived at Nakamoto Cave for a long time…

Beautiful sunlight shining through the cave…


Checking out on some crabs and others in between the coral branches near Panari Manta Point.


We can see some eggs on the tummy.

When are they due?


Unfortunately there was no Manta here today…

We will try tomorrow!
