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!
