Is it summer yet?

The GW holiday season has not yet started, but it feels like the hot summer has arrived♪

The sun is scorching hot, and some thick summer clouds are sitting on the horizon.

If you are planning to come to Ishigaki, make sure to bring your sun screen!


As for our dives, we cruised around the northwest side of Ishigaki for three dives.

A Green turtle was staring at the camera at Osaki.


Cloud of Sea goldie stands out in the blue water.


Nudibranch eggs.

I really want to see how they actually lay these eggs.


We found a white Leaf scorpionfish.


Moyer’s dragonet has unique body color of white and red.


I was taking a photo of the Yaeyama blenny (left), but a juvenile Princess damselfish came in!


Humpnose big-eye bream – they usually swill alone, but they came in a group today.


We had two DSD guests today and wanted to introduce them to the mantas, but unfortunately the mantas were not there today…

Maybe next time?


This south wind condition is forecasted to continue at least for a couple of more days 🙂
