The weather could be better, but still nice :-)

May 1, 2022


Weather: Rainy sometimes cloudy
Ground Temperature: 24℃
Water Temperature: 26℃
Wind Direction: North northeast (7-9m/s)
Swell: 3m


Diving point (visibility)


☆ Osaki Lionfish Palace, Ishigaki Island (30m)
☆ Osaki Purple Queen Reef, Ishigaki Island (30m)
☆ Osaki Sand Garden, Ishigaki Island (25m)


The ground temperature dropped to 25C – low enough in Ishigaki and feels a bit chilly…

The weather could be better, but the water visibility is great.

As we cruised down south yesterday, we went north today.

We tried to go to Yarabu Corner, but the swells were too big, and we stayed around the Osaki area for all three dives.


“Get out of my area!”

A Golden damselfish was trying to protect its eggs.



Longfin batfish.

If you have a wide lens, this would be a great photo subject.


We found a Flowery flounder on the white sand.


A big school of Indian mackerel – a bit too early for the season?


Lots of Giant cuttlefish were having their end-of-the-season party!


Can you tell what this is?


It’s a devilfish hiding in the sand.

Very good camouflage!
