Compared to yesterday, there was much less wind in Ishigaki island today(≧▽≦) Another boat saw dolphins in Osaki area! And they snorkeled with them!(>_<) We were so close but missed them(;´･ω･) Well, the corals were pretty I guess(;・∀・)
Lots of Sea turtles on the dive too(≧▽≦) But no dolphins…
Another turtle was sleeping nearby, not many divers in the water today so I guess it could relax better(;^ω^) I wish there was dolphins too…
This Stonefish was sitting in the same spot as yesterday☆
It’s too bad we missed the dolphins, but the diving was good(≧▽≦) Tomorrow we’re doing some maintenance at the shop(;・∀・)
The ocean around Ishigaki island is getting colder by the day(;・∀・) But diving is good! We went for fun dives in Osaki and Nagura☆ The corals in Nagura are really something special♡
We found some Robust ghost pipefish♪
The sea turtles weren’t at their usual resting place(/ω＼) Maybe too many people there recently so they escaped to somewhere deeper. However, we saw many other interesring marine animals! Below, a Whipcoral shrimp.
At least the shrimps aren’t moving around as much☆☆
Below, an Anemone partner shrimp.
Bubble coral shrimp(｀・ω・´)
A flounder was hiding on the sand☆
We also swam across this good looking Batfish.
I think this winter will be quite cold in Ishigaki island, time to bring lots of warm water to pour inside the wetsuits!
The north wind is blowing over Ishigaki island. We went out for discover scuba dives in Osaki area(≧▽≦) Today’s divers were from Hong Kong♪ One of them was certified and the other two did their first dives today(/・ω・)/
Everybody swam very well♪ It was hard to believe it was their first dives(;・∀・)
We met the Sea turtles in Osaki(≧▽≦) This one was chilling on the rocks♪
We also met many other sea creatures and took lots of photos♪ Below, together with Clown anemonefishes☆
A close up of a Clark’s anemonefish♪ Looking closely, they have a lot of teeth! (;・∀・)
Tomorrow, the wind will get stronger again. We have another group of discover scuba divers joining us♪
