It has been sunny since the morning.

There were some clouds, but it never rained, and the sunshine was burning hot!

The water visibility was fantastic today.

Same as the sunny day, clear blue water makes a big difference.


Blotcheye soldierfish – they live in the dark spaces of reefs.


Juvenile Humpnose big-eye bream.

Not a major fish, but I like this one 🙂


Small ones are always cute ♪


Mid-size ones are also cute.


Silver Striped Round Herring.

I would be going crazy if I were a whale!


Seascapes are nice on sunny days 🙂


400 dives – when you have some diving experience, you know what this means!



Manta Point was quiet again…

We waited, waited, and waited…

When we gave up and started heading back to the boat…

A big manta suddenly appeared, and slowly passed by!

It was a very short encounter, but definitely made a big difference!


Hope we will see it again tomorrow!
