It was forecasted to be rainy day, but it turned out to be just cloudy, and a little bit of blue sky 🙂

But it was windy as expected, so we dived around the west side of Ishigaki.

 

 

We came back to Osaki again today, but went a bit deep there, to look for some gobies.

An unexpected encounter with a Cowtail stingray took a little bit of our dive time, but we found some gobies 🙂

 

Spotted prawn-goby can also be found around much more shallow areas.

 

Crocodilefish.

Looks scary?

 

Lots of Garden eels were sticking out of their head around the white sand area.

 

Nimos and turtles, and much more!

 

It will be a quiet weekend, but will be busy from the next week!

Stay tuned!
