The warm south wind turned west and then north around noon.

And the weather also changed from cloudy to rainy to sunny… it was a busy day!

 

Today we had two new divers on the boat.

A bit nervous at the beginning, but both of them quickly gained confidence.

 

 

We arrived at the Kabira Manta Point before noon, before the wind turned north.

And this small manta came to the cleaning station toward the end of our dive.

It was less than 2m long 🙂

 

It was enjoying the cleaning station, and didn’t mind the divers at all!

 

After enjoying watching the manta, we cruised down south to Nagura Bay to avoid the north wind.

Today we found this Octopus.

It was raising its eyes and carefully watching around the area.

 

This juvenile Longfin batfish is always here.

It will soon grow big, and its orange line around the edge will disappear…

 

Cornet fish is actually a very aggressive hunter.

When it finds its prey, it attacks it very quickly.

 

Time flies, and only two more days to go for 2021.

Hope everyone is enjoying the holiday season!
