It’s the rainy season, and it’s been raining a lot this year.

Today it rained a bit in the morning but stayed cloudy after that, so it was a better day.



A scene at one of the sand points today.

There were Garden eels ahead of them, but they are very shy and quickly hide away when they sense divers.

So this is how we approach Garden eels 🙂


The swells were strong from the north, and our cruise to Kabira was very rough.

But this beautiful view of the corals is worth the trip!


It would have been perfect with some mantas, but unfortunately, they didn’t show up today 🙁

Hope we can see you guys next time.


The wind is forecasted to pick up tomorrow afternoon.

Let’s enjoy safe and fun diving!
