Lots of tourists started to arrive in Ishigaki for the year-end holiday season.

And the weather is sunny and the water is clear!

Let’s go to see mantas around Kuroshima Island!


A warm up dive at Taketomi Island – the water is crystal clear♪


Yesterday we saw many mantas from the boat upon arrival at Kuroshima, but we couldn’t find any today.

But a manta came toward us while we were looking at sone nudibranchs!


Nudibranchs – sorry, it’s not that you are unimportant.


After checking on the nudibranchs, we found more mantas swimming around the surface.

Some of the guests swam with mantas by snorkeling during the break 🙂


“Hey, I am also here…”


Our guests for the Discover Scuba Diving program also met with turtles and sharks.

Hope you enjoyed our dive cruise!


Only three more days to go for 2021!

Let’s enjoy it!
