Although it was mostly sunny, there were clouds in the sky and sometimes the sun was covered by them today.

We heard that it is raining heavily in many other parts of Japan, and it almost looks like we are going back to the rainy season.

Please stay safe everyone!


Today we searched for clear blue water and ended up diving around Iriomote.



Requests for the day were… shrimps and crabs.

So we looked them around in the coral reef.


The afternoon dive was at Yonara Channel, located between Kohama and Iriomote Islands.

The water visibility was a bit murky, but the current was nice and gentle.


The cleaning station here is in the middle of the white sand, located around 28m deep.

As we approached, we saw a big manta swimming slowly over the cleaning station!


And the second one came in, while we were watching the first one!



Took a lot of pictures, but it is never enough 🙂


Thank you all for joining today!
