It was mostly cloudy today, but the ground temperature was above 20C and not too cold.

We cruised down south to Taketomi, Kuroshima, and Panari Islands.

One of the teams saw a manta at Kuroshima, but that was it there.

So we decided to move to Panari Island for the afternoon dive, and a big manta showed up and swam right in front of us!

The condition turned rough when we returned on the boat after three dives, but we made it safely home.

Only one more day to go in 2022!
