Typhoon #18 is now gone, and we are back to on business 🙂

But the east wind is still strong, so we cruised around the areas where we can avoid the east wind – namely, Osaki and Nagura area.

We were a bit worried about visibility, but it was better than expected.

Water temperature edged down again, and now is around 28C – not too cold yet 🙂

Upon requests, we aimed at macro sea life today!


We saw some dolphins passing by around Osaki area, so we were excited to jump into the water!

“Hey turtle, where are the dolphins?”


Maybe we can try Mantas tomorrow?
