It was forecasted to be sunny, but it was cloudy from the morning and rained often during the day.

Well, forecasts are forecasts, and can always go wrong.



We started the OWD course today.

Very good sense of balance, and neutral buoyancy skill was perfect!


Another guest dive with us today after 35 years of blank period.

Hope you had some relaxing refresh dives!


The water visibility was a bit low today, maybe because of the rain.

But that’s not a problem.

Just look closely at the reefs, and you will always find something 🙂


A juvenile Ornate butterflyfish was around the size of a 500 yen coin.

Very shy and it was hard to take a clean shot.


Square-spot Fairy Basslet.

Why such a big square spot?

I don’t know, but I love this fish 🙂


I found this Leaf scorpionfish on the same reef as the Square-spot fairy basslet.

There are many other interesting creatures on the reef, but it was around 25m deep and the time was limited…


Taking a video of a Blue-spotted stingray…


And a sea snake…


And here is the photo at the Manta City.

Where is the Manta?

That’s what I want to know…


Looks like it will be a rainy summer.
