Our GW busy season started today 🙂

The wind is a bit strong today, but the weather continues to be gorgeous!

And the water temperature is rising, so it is becoming very comfortable in the water♪

 

 

Our dives today were at Nagura, Osaki and Kabira areas.

 

It is almost at the end of the season for Giant cuttlefish, but there still are some hanging around the coral reef.

 

A Brown-banded pipefish with a big tummy.

 

This nudibranch reminds me of an ice candy I used to eat when I was a kid.

 

There was only one manta at the Kabira Manta Point, but it came very close and entertained us 🙂

 

It came right above us and stayed there for a while.

Enjoyed some bubble bath with the divers’ air?

 

It came near the DSD guests – what a treat!

 

I wish it is always like this♪

The wind is forecasted to turn north tomorrow.

Maybe Kuroshima?
