Lots of sea turtles

Great weather in Ishigaki island (≧▽≦) Just wish the wind would chill out a bit(;^ω^)
Today we went out with both certified and beginner divers on the boat☆ We looked for the manta rays but…(/ω\) no luck. This is starting me worried(´・ω・`) The corals were still amazing and we saw lots of green sea turtles♪

A sleeping sea turtle at manta point\(^o^)/ Of course we had to take a photo with it♪

Two fabolous divers, one certified and one beginner♪♪

We swam over the coral garden together☆ This dive site is truly something special(*^▽^*)

Blue-green damselfishes and their friends were also enjoying themselves on the reef♬

A typhoon has formed in the south, I wonder if it will hit Ishigaki island (;・∀・)

Finally a manta ray

A gentle north wind and glittering ocean✨ in the afternoon, south wind and roaring thunder🦁 strange weather in ishigaki island today(;^ω^)
Today we went for three dives♪ First time diving, big excitement(≧▽≦)

We finally saw a manta ray~~\(^o^)/・・・ We’ll at least our certified divers team on the deeper side(;^ω^) I hope they will appear much more often like usually from now on(`・ω・´)

Lots of schools of sea goldies today again! No other fish are quite this sparkly red and fluttery(*^▽^*)

Lots of different reef fishes above this bommie too☆

Smooth swimming for our first time diver (/・ω・)/

Suddenly, Obon has finished?! Ishigaki island is very quiet again in the middle of the summer…

First dives since open water course

The weather forecast must be broken, the weather was great today again(≧▽≦) We departed from Kabira with blue sky and blue, calm sea☆

Today’s guest did their first fun dives with us since finishing their open water course☆ We swam over the coral garden♪

So many beautiful corals, but no manta rays today again(;´・ω・)

This anemone didn’t look very well though, maybe the water temperature has gotten a bit too high again(´・ω・`)

Tomorrow we’re off diving again! I wonder what we will find\(^o^)/

Fun Dives among the corals

The sky was finally clear again in Ishigaki island today(≧▽≦)
We went out for fun dives☆ I see these corals everyday but they still make me happy\(^o^)/

Sea goldies and other small fishes swimming above the corals♪♪

At Yamabare, we met the green sea turtles☆☆ This one was having a nap

The other one was getting a good shell rub, scratch, scratch, scratch (;・∀・)

Harlequin file fishes hovering over the corals♡

An anemonekrab♪

Tomorrow we’re off diving again☆ The weather forecast is a bit strange but I’m looking forward to it

Discover scuba dives all day

The wind blew fairly strong over Ishigaki island today but underwater the visibility was really good(≧▽≦)
Today we went out for 3 discover scuba dives with this group of amazing friends☆

Fishes swimming on top of the corals✨✨ Visibility on top\(^o^)/

Today’s guests♪ Two beginner divers and one that had tried once before♪ Everybody swam very well after being a bit unbalanced at the start,. Most importantly, it was lots of fun!

We went to Manta point and everyone swam smoothly to sit down in front of the cleaning station and wait… but no Manta ray today (/ω\)

At Yamabare, we had better luck with the green sea turtles♪♪ They were sleeping in their usual place and didn’t mind posing for and with us♡

It’s been windy around Ishigaki recently, typhoon nr. 6 is spinning south of Taiwan and looks like there’s a nr. 7th forming too(;・∀・)
