Last chance to see manta rays this year?!

We woke up to a sunny Ishigaki this morning(≧▽≦) With three discover scuba divers onboard we went diving at Osaki and Manta Scramble☆
The drive out to Manta scramble went smooth but, as we came up after the second dive, the wind had turned north and was picking up strength…
Below, a photo from the dive briefing this sunny morning(`・ω・´)

Two of three divers did their very first dives, they swam very well♪♪

On the first dive, the green sea turtles came to greet them☆ They always look too content on the rocks(≧▽≦)

We approached slowly and took a photo together(≧▽≦)

For second dive, off to Manta point! It might be the last chance to meet them this year I thought as we swam over to the cleaning station and there they were♪ One manta was circling the cleaning station the whole time☆ We saw a total of four different individuals(≧▽≦)

It was a very lucky day to go diving on♪w

The corals were also doing well I noticed as we swam over them☆

From tomorrow, the weather is supposed to start turning over to winter again(;´・ω・)
