As the north wind was strong, we escaped to the Osaki area today.

And that was the right call!

We saw this school of Island trevally.

We may see them from time to time, maybe a couple of them.

Today there were probably 500 of them!

And each of them was 50-70cm large!

And they surrounded us!

That’s rare!



We also saw a manta at Osaki, which is very rare.

A huge Hawksbill turtle is also rare…

A school of Teira batt fish isn’t rare, but nice to see 🙂


Hope to have more of these rare days!
