Too Close! Very Curious Turtle on Today’s Discover Scuba Dives

The south wind still blows strong in Ishigaki island, but we went to calm Yamabare for our first dive today(*^▽^*)
Discover scuba diving – GO!

At Yamabare, we met this Green turtle that swam right at us too our diver’s great excitment(≧▽≦)

However, it didn’t stop and got a bit too close(;・∀・) Sometimes we meet this turtle that somebody has been feeding, it’s not good at all as they can get quite persistent as they look for food(;^ω^)

At this dive point we also enjoyed the coral forest♪♪

Unfortunatley, the Manta ray’s didn’t show up today. But we still had a good time swimming(^O^) And a beautiful Spotted eagle ray swam by slowly☆

Looking forward to more fun dives tomorrow!

The visibility was great and we floated over the coral sea♪♪ The corals are still looking good, but it’s gotten way too warm underwater the last week(゚Д゚;)
