The south wind was still strong, although it has softened a bit.

Although it was a rough cruise, we managed to dive at Nagura and Osaki area today 🙂

As the condition was rough, there was almost no other dive boat, and we enjoyed the area just for us.


We had a nice group photo of a Green turtle and a Turky moray.



This turtle suddenly started to swim toward me…


This is one of my favorite places in Nagura Bay with tons of Indian perch around the corals.


There are so many creatures you would definitely want to take photos of…


The afternoon dive was at Kabira Manta Point.

“Hello, anyone here?”


After a long wait, we gave up and headed to the boat…



Two Mantas came out!


All of us managed to see the Mantas!



Of course, we love turtles and mantas, but maybe this guy was the hero of the day 🙂


Thank you everyone for joining our dive cruise today!
