The wind was heavy from the south, so we cruised west to the Iriomote area.

When was the last time we came here? Maybe around 20 days ago.



The water was crystal clear, but cold!

We were so used to the water temperature of around 30-31C, so 29C was freezing (lol).

It was scorching hot on the boat after the heavy rain, so it was a funny feeling 🙂


Iriomote is a big island, but full of small stuff, too!


We also tried a deep dive.


We found a big school of Bigeye trevally!


… but we couldn’t come close – they were moving so fast!


We also saw a manta, but couldn’t come close either 🙁


It is forecasted to be less windy tomorrow.
