The Northwest wind stayed strong again, and it was blasting in the morning!

The sea condition was rough again, but maybe a bit better than yesterday.

It was a rough cruise to the dive point, but we managed to our first dive point of Taketomi 🙂

 

There were tons of Fusiliers at Tokakin Reef!

Although the water was a bit murky, we could almost go in the middle of them!

 

 

Some lucky guests saw a Spotted eagle ray down deep.

 

The bottom of Tokakin Reef is over 25m, and controlling neutral buoyancy is very important.

 

The second dive point was a white sand point.

The color of Blue-green chromis stands out in the bright water.

 

As the condition calmed down in the afternoon, we went to the Kuroshima area.

Kuroshima Island is only around a 20min ride down south from Taketomi and has beautiful seascape and drop-off points.

 

Typhoon Nanmadol (#14) went north and will land on the Kyushu Island today.

Please stay safe!
