It felt cold without the sun, and the water temperature dropped again.

But everyone was keen to meet mantas, so we cruised north toward the Kabira Manta Point, stopping at Nagura and Osaki on our way.

Everyone loves nudibranchs – the season is here!



Cute little baby♪


It’s not the season yet, but some of the lucky guests saw this one – Giant Cuttlefish.

“What are you looking at!”


It was a rough boat ride to the Kabira Manta Point, but two mantas were hovering over the cleaning station when we arrived.


Excited to meet the mantas?


A manta came very close during our safety stop♪


The wind will likely pick up more tomorrow…
