It was mostly cloudy today, with a little bit of sunshine from time to time.

As the wind was blowing from the south but only softly, we cruised to the south of Taketomi Island.


The first dive point of the day was Tokakin Reef, and the current was strong!

Once we dropped down to the reef, it was impossible to swim against the current, so we stayed there to watch the fish around.



There were some big Dogtooth tunas, but they were far away…


While staying on the reef, I found this big Weedy stingfish.


The second dive point was Potato Reef.

The current here was also strong!


But the current doesn’t matter, as there are tons of things to watch here 🙂


If you have a camera, there are lots of sea creatures to shoot.

If you don’t, just relax and enjoy!


For the afternoon dive, we cruised up to the Osaki area of Ishigaki Island.


Thank you everyone for joining!


The south wind is forecasted to pick up tomorrow.

The weather map looks like that of right after the rainy season…
