It was a very rare day – Nagura Bay was crystal clear!

Nagura blue?

 

 

The beautiful corals all around make it look like a flower garden.

We started to see many of them turning white…

 

Can you see the Indian perch covering the corals?

 

As the water visibility was very clear for the first dive, we thought it would even be better around the Sakieda area, but not too different from the past couple of days…

 

Still the water visibility of around 18m is more than enough for arches 🙂

 

We had an 11-year-old junior diver today!

Hope you will bring with you a memory of a lifetime!

 

As for the weather it rained on and off, and had this clear sky during the offs.

 

The afternoon dive point was Kabira Manta Point.

There was some current, and swimming against it was a bit challenging.

 

Mantas?

We couldn’t find one.

Were we looking in the wrong direction??

 

Hope we can find them tomorrow…
