It rained this morning when we were picking up our guests but cleared out for the rest of the day♪

It is a boat charter day for 17 guests!

We divided the group into five teams, and went to three dives around Ishigaki.

 

 

The Green turtle of Osaki was surprised to see so many divers, but still not shy at all 🙂

But Garden eels are very shy, and we need to approach them very slowly…

 

Some of the guests arrived earlier, and it was the second day of diving.

 

Nimos were busy blowing fresh water onto the eggs.

They are almost coming out!

 

A juvenile False puffer?

It was only around 2cm long.

 

My favorite – a juvenile Yellow boxfish.

 

Around this time of year, you will find many juvenile Yaeyama blenny.

 

Leaf scorpionfish.

Not a juvenile, and around 8cm long.

 

Longfin batfish always congregate.

 

The Green turtle of Osaki is used to seeing divers.

 

A huge Napoleonfish!

It was probably around 1.5m long.

It was curiously swimming around the divers.

 

The charter day continues tomorrow 🙂
