Gotta see a Manta!

As we couldn’t find any at Panari Manta Point, we cruised to Kabira Manta Point first thing in the morning today.

Visibility was great, and we spot Mantas from far away – if they ever come…

But none showed up here…

 

We then went to Osaki for turtles.

Turtles are easy to find here in Ishigaki.

This one was not sleeping, but was scratching its neck with corals.

Itchy?

 

A rose?

No, this is egg of nudibranch.

Hope we will see many in the upcoming season!

 

There were lots of Batfish near the reef we anchored our boat.

 

Great dives, but we couldn’t forget about mantas…

So we went back to Kabira Manta Point again for our third dive.

And there we go!

There were total of four mantas today!

Mantastic!

 

Some of them passed right in front of us!

 

And everyone was busy taking pictures 🙂

 

Hope you all enjoyed our dive cruise!
