It started off with heavy rain…

It cleared a bit in the afternoon, but it rained again and stayed unstable all day.

But the sea condition was good, and the cruise was comfortable 🙂


Visibility at Osaki looked very bad, and we couldn’t even see 2m ahead around the surface area, but it was quite clear deeper down the water.


We found five Giant cuttlefish!


After the warm-up dive at Osaki, we cruised west to the Iriomote area – Nobarusone, one of our favorite drift dive points.


A school of Rainbow runners.


Dogtooth tuna.


Big eye trevally and Barracuda.


And a Manta!


There was so much to see!


It is forecasted to be rainy again tomorrow.

Does it matter?

Not at all!
