The wind shifted to the east, but still a bit strong.

We wanted to make it a manta day, but couldn’t make it to Kabira…

So we started off with a relaxing dive at Osaki.


Hey, you are upside down!

“I am Upsidedown Jellyfish!”


There were tons of Sea Goldie covering the reef!


It was breathtaking…


We cruised west after the first dive, to Iriomote – Nobarusone is one of our favorite dive points for big fish!

…but there was no Manta, no Bigeye Trevally, no Barracuda…

Well, it is all about nature, and this can happen sometimes.


So we went to Yonara Channel for our afternoon dive, and it was the perfect choice!


We saw Mantas right after our entry!


And many more!


Some of our guests wanted to see Manta so much, so they changed their schedule to dive today.

That was a right choice!


We saw total of four Mantas!


Thank you all for joining this exciting dive cruise!
