The wind was blowing today from the west, which is quite rare.

But it was not blowing strong, and the condition was great.

It must be a great condition for parasailing 🙂



Indian perch of Nagura Bay.

Are they stuck in the corals?


There are lots of Longfin batfish around Osaki.


Some fish like darkness.

Golden sweeper is one of them.


Check our Facebook page for the video of this Golden sweeper.


What are you taking?


Yellow-nose prawn goby!


And Orange-striped shrimpgoby!


This one was living in a hole on a reef.


Yellow clown goby lives in the corals.

And the corals below have totally bleached out, and algae are growing…

Too bad, but this is one of nature’s cycles.


Kabira Manta Point of the afternoon.

The water was super clear, and the corals are getting super white…


There was a baby Green turtle hovering over the cleaning station.

You have to get out of there when the big boss comes 🙂


There was a small manta that quickly swam by, but I couldn’t take any pictures…

Maybe the baby manta was scared of the baby turtle?
