Nice weather but a little bit windy in Ishigaki island today(^_^;)
Today we had fun dives in the morning and started an advanced open water diver course in the afternoon♪
Below, magical coral garden in Nagura bay(*^▽^*)
The visibility in Osaki was better than expected! Perfect for wall diving☆
Of course, we also did lots of practice on the advanced course*\(^o^)/*
Compass navigation dive, check!♪
A Lionfish in the shallows! It was hovering above the corals and came into perfect light( ´ ▽ ` )
A spotted garden eel poking its head up above the sand♪♪
A flounder was hiding in the sand, or at least it was hidden until it movedσ(^_^;)
A stonefish♪ Only the eyes and mouth sticking up from the sand♪
We saw a pair of robust ghost pipefish too, they are really hard to capture on photo.
An anemone shrimp☆
We also saw this very big Japanese mantis shrimp(*^▽^*) It had dug a big hole for itself and didn’t move at all as we approached.
Looking forward to diving again tomorrow♪
