It was cloudy and rainy in the morning.

The south wind was a bit strong, and the surface area was a bit choppy.

Under the water? Fantastic as always!



This Ornate butterflyfish was smaller than a 500 yen coin.

Smaller ones are cuter 🙂


This juvenile Yellow boxfish was around 3cm in size.


Chieko-san has been diving with us since the days when she was not even a certified diver.

So she knows Nagura Bay in and out, but there is always something new here.

She found two juvenile Yellow boxfish today!


It is nice and warm in the water, but 30C is too warm…

We started to see a lot of coral bleaching these days.

This one is partially purple – which may be a sign of bleaching.


We have not had any typhoons around the Ishigaki area this year, and it is about time we need one, to stir up the cold water from the bottom of the ocean.


The second dive was at Sakieda Bay.

Our guests today had three years of blank period, but Ishigaki is a great area to enjoy refresh diving 🙂

Looking forward to having you back soon!


So her mother finally convinced her to try DSD.

It was a bit challenging to equalize, but had no problem from the second dive!

Let’s have more fun tomorrow!


There was a lot of Scissortail sergeant at Kabira Manta Point, waiting for mantas…


The clouds cleared up on our way back to the port 🙂


It is forecasted to be sunny tomorrow 🙂
