It was rainy from the morning, and the ground temperature dropped two notches down to 30C.

It was nice and cool, and I don’t mind such a rainy day in summer 🙂

 

As the south wind weakened, we cruised down to Taketomi for the first dive.

 

 

Blue-green chromis can be found anywhere in Ishigaki, but the scenery here is breathtaking…

 

After the warm-up dive in Taketomi, we cruised up to the Sakieda area, located on the northwest end of Ishigaki Island.

And the must-see here is this coral reef!

 

 

Did you find anything?

 

A huge Hermit crab – probably around 20cm.

 

A Comet.

This fish is very shy and usually very difficult to capture the whole body.

 

A Weedy stingfish, upside down.

 

Unfortunately, there was no manta at Kabira Manta Point…

Where are you?

 

A hot summer day is forecasted to be back tomorrow!
