It was not a “flat” day, with a little bit of wind.

The ground temperature hit 34C, but the wind was blowing from the north and felt a little dryer and nice.

But the sunlight is very strong, and sunscreen is a must-have!


Today we cruised along the west side of Ishigaki Island – namely, Osaki, Kabira and Sukuji.


Turtles and Turkey moray, as usual.


Whipcoral goby…


Red spotted porcelain crab.


Square-spot fairy basslet of Sukuji Bay.


Reticulate dascyllus.


My favorite Sea goldie.


… and the beautiful corals.


And Mantas…?


Encounter rate has been quite low these days… hope it will recover as we go deep into summer!
