The south wind is strong in Ishigaki island. But we have good shelter from it in Kabira area☆
We started the boat diving part of the open water course today(≧▽≦)
Before entering the water, my students did a proper buddy check!
Underwater, we first did our skill practice before going for a swim♪♪
A Green turtle looked comfy napping under a rock(^O^)
Then, the turtle suddenly swam straight towards one of our divers(;・∀・) It was surprising and a little bit scary, maybe it was a bit confused after just waking up(;´･ω･)
At Manta scramble, we saw two Manta rays right under the boat after jumping in(*^▽^*)
Unfortunately, my Open water students didn’t see them (T_T)
I was hoping the Mantas would come back, but sadly they didn’t this time… I hope we can see them tomorrow!
Theese Orange Anemonefishes entertained us while we waited for the Mantas♪♪
It’s not the same, but at least they are cute to look at(;^ω^)
The wind will be strong tomorrow again, but I’m looking forward to finishing the course and more fun dives on the boat☆☆
