Relaxed Day on the Ocean

The wind suddenly died down overnight and the sea was calm today in Ishigaki island(≧▽≦) However, the swell was still lingering on the north side so we couldnät go to manta point(;´・ω・) But we had some good dives in Osaki area and Nagura bay☆ A Green turtle went up for air and then back to its usual sleeping place(`・ω・´)

We met a Giant cuttlefish too☆ This one wasn’t hiding at all and floating around out in the open.

We saw a Crocodilefish today again. This one was having a rest while small cleaner fishes were working busily, I guess it’s a fish spa? (;^ω^)

This Stonefish was well hidden in the sand♪♪Only the eyes and mouth were sticking up (;・∀・)

Lots of tiny Blue-green damselfishes♪ Absolutely adorable(≧▽≦)

Of couse, we saw many shrimps too\(^o^)/ Below is an Arrow cleaner shrimp♪

A big Bubblecoral shrimp♪I will miss this little fellow when we move the boat over to Kabira area for the summer(^.^)/~~~

Lots of Squat shrimps were shaking their little tails♪♪

And closeby, this big Anemone shrimp was guarding its territory(;・∀・)

An anemone parther shrimp☆

Tomorrow we’re starting an Advanced Open Water Course☆ It’s been a while since last time so I’m looking forward to it\(^o^)/
