The cloudy sky of the morning gradually cleared up, but it rained during the first dive.

The rest of the day was totally sunny!

 

Today we went to Sakieda and Sukuji area for three dives.

Corals around here, once destroyed by Crown-of-the-thorn starfish around 10 yrs ago, has totally recovered, and is one of the must-sees of the area.

 

 

So are the beautiful Sea goldies and Purple queens!

 

When photos are not enough to capture the beautiful scenery, just turn it onto the video mode 🙂

 

Today there were tons of Gurukun (Fusiliers)!

It was everywhere!

 

There was a number of big schools, and they were busy feeding on something.

 

Check out our video clip on our Facebook page!

 

At Kabira Manta Point, there was a big Green turtle hovering around…

 

And of course, the main cast of the point was there!

 

Although there was only one manta today, it stayed around the area for a while before taking off.

 

The weather forecast for tomorrow is… cloudy?
