Summer has already arrived to Ishigaki island, it was very, very hot today (￣◇￣;)
Despite strong winds, the waves were only at 1,5m☆ Water temperature is up to 26℃!
Yesterday, we did skill practice at the beach and today we went diving in the ocean for 2nd day of the open water course♪♪
They both finished the beach practice at record speed yesterday and were just as smooth divers in the ocean･:*+.\(( °ω° ))/.:+ Like all new divers, they were a little nervous at the surface but that soon passed and everyone had a good dive〜♪
Now is the best time to dive Yonehara! So many small fish fry ☆*:.｡. o(≧▽≦)o .｡.:*☆ Sea goldies, blue-green damselfishes, and many others were swimming in and out of the corals♡ It’s a wondrous feeling just to swim over the lively reefs♫
We swam by this green turtle that let us come really close (≧∀≦) It was totally absorbed in munching down the soft coralsΣ(‘◉⌓◉’)
Tomorrow, we’ll finish the open water course! Lots of skill practice but also time to float over the reefs♡ Looking forward to dive!
