Looks like it rained during the night, but gone by the morning.

The weather was mostly sunny and sometimes rainy, but there were times it was only partially sunny as in the picture below.




The first dive was at Sukuji Bay.

We dived to the deep part of the point and saw this Square-spot fairy basslet.

I know the square mark is eye-catching, but check out its beautiful fins also!



Females are not as colorful.


Juvenile Purple queen.


The corals of Nagura Bay started to turn white…

We need some typhoons!


Our guests today have been diving with us for three days, and desperately want to see mantas…


… no manta again, but saw a male Napoleonfishi.

I like you, but not today…


For the afternoon dive, we went to the seascape point of Oganzaki Light House.

As the divers swim through the tunnels, bubbles come out of the top of the reef 🙂


This Hermit crab was carrying a huge shell – around 15cm tall.


At the end of the dive, a baby Whitetip reef shark appeared.

It was pretty cute 🙂


I miss you, manta…
