Back to a warm winter day 🙂

Today we had two dives in the morning at Osaki.

Enjoyed watching Green Turtles and the beautiful dance of Anthias.


Also, we met a bunch of Tiera Batfish.


For the afternoon dive, we went to Yonara again♪

But where are the mantas??

We saw them yesterday, but there was none…


I know why – it’s probably because of this big Blacktip Shark.

It was swimming around the reef where we usually see mantas.


Too bad we couldn’t see the mantas, but the Blacktip was cool!


We also started our OWD course today.

Our student this time is very talented and cleared all the required skills on the first try 🙂


Let’s enjoy the final round of the OWD course tomorrow!
