So we cruised to the west to the Iriomote area.

The weather was rainy all day, but the water was clear blue everywhere!

 

We found this big school of Barracuda today!

There were probably over 100 of them.

We swam along so that they don’t go away, and gradually came closer 🙂

 

We found a school of Bigeye trevally far away, but couldn’t get closer.

Also, we found a Spotted stingray swimming around.

 

The tunnels of the Nobaru area have light coming down from the top, and the scenery is stunningly beautiful.

And one of them has a heart-shaped opening on the top.

 

“Don’t follow me!”

 

The corals around Iriomote look very healthy.

 

The GW holiday season is over, and we did not see any divers around the area 🙂

 

Are you a solo diver?

No problem!

You can always make friends on our dive cruise!

 

The weather forecast does not look too good for the next two weeks…

But I am sure the dive condition will be great!

Let’s enjoy the blue water of the rainy season!
