It was supposed to be sunny all day…


Well, It doesn’t really matter, does it?


Our guest Hannah completed her OWD course today!


Glad we could help your long-time dream come true!

Enjoy exploring the world ocean!


We also had 400th memorial dive celebration!

Thank you for diving with us always, and looking forward to celebrating your 500th dive!


As the wind continued to blow from the north, our dive points were around Ishigaki Island today.


We found a young Longfin batfish hiding in coral branches.

At least it was trying…


I love Purple queens…

Particularly when many of them are congregating.


Moorish idol.

They usually swim solo, so five of them together is a big group.


We saw many more.


How do you feel being an Open Water Diver?


The coral garden of Nagura bay was hit hard by the last typhoon and looks like a Gozzila walked through some places…

It will take some years to recover, but looking forward to seeing the beautiful scenery again.


Another sunny day forecasted for tomorrow.

I hope so 🙂
