Just before the storm

Great weather! Sunny and just a slight breeze over Ishigaki island(^O^) The wind is supposed to pick up again this afternoon but before that we dashed off to manta point for two dives with our guests from the last two days(≧∀≦)
First dive at manta city! After waiting for 20minutes…

…a Manta ray! 〜・:*+.\(( °ω° ))/.:+ It’s been a while since we could go see them close like this♪ Two rays on the first dive☆☆ However, they didn’t stay long.
When I checked the other cleaning stations, another dive shop was chasing the manta rays, swimming above them and all around with their cameras. That is probably why we seen less of the manta rays recently. I wish all shops would respect the rules we created together to protect this area Σ(‘◉⌓◉’)

For second dive we went to Manta scramble! As soon as we went down, we saw a manta circling the cleaning station♪It was really close!(*^▽^*)

We saw a total of four manta rays on the second dive! One or more at the cleaning station all the time♪

One of them swam very close to our guest!

We also enjoyed all the amazing corals♡ It’s gotten so pretty around this point(((o(*゚▽゚*)o)))♡

As I’m writing this blog, I can hear the wind getting stronger and stronger outside. It will be rough on the ocean from tomorrow (^_^;)
