The corals in Osaki are doing well

A calm breeze from the north blew over Ishigaki island today(≧▽≦) We went for three fun dives in Osaki and Nagura area☆
The corals are stunning (*´▽`*) The visibility was down a bit but it was still very beautiful!

The small fishes were enjoying the corals too, so many of them!!! (;・∀・)

The garden eels poked their heads up from the sandy bottom to feed☆

An Orange stripe shrimp goby♪

In the deeper parts of the site we also spotted this white-ray shrimp goby(*´▽`*)

A pair of robust ghostpipefish♡

A school of batfishす☆ We approached slowly and they didn’t swim away(≧▽≦)

It doesn’t matter how many times I see them, the pipefish always has such cute face(*´▽`*)

An anemone and an anemone shrimp♪This anemone has been here for a long time, sadly, right now it’s worrinly white(;´・ω・)

We saw lots of different marine animals today☆ Looking forward to another day of diving tomorrow!

Let’s play! The sea is still calm

A north wind is blowing over Ishigaki island so we went diving in Osaki and Nagura area(≧▽≦)
Today, we had two families on the boat☆ Discover scuba dives, fun dives and snorkeling♪

In Osaki, we saw a giant gcuttlefish(*´▽`*)

Discover scuba dives☆ They had both dived before and kept very good buoyancy(/・ω・)/

Snorkeling team spotted on the surface!☆

Lots of corals in Nagura bay♡

Countless small fishes were hiding inside the corals(≧▽≦)

Clown anemone fish♪

Looking forward to diving in Osaki area tomorrow again☆☆

Diving with giant cuttlefishes

The weather was good and we departed for fun dives in Ishigaki island(≧▽≦) We don’t have many guests these days but there’s nothing much to do about it(;^ω^) The diving here is still great☆
Many cuttlefishes had gathered today at the first dive site, but they weren’t laying eggs.

We also met a few green sea turtles. Sometimes if we spend too long with them there isn’t enough time to meet the cuttlefishes(;・∀・)

Many fishes seem to be relaxed in springtime♪♪ Even this lionfish looked sleepy.

We swam slowly over the coral garden.

Lots of stonefish in this area♪ This one was sticking its mouth out of the sand☆ Many divers sit down around here, I hope all guides are checking properly before sitting down (;^ω^)

This one squeezed itself between rocks, the texture is right but the color doesn’t match.

Today, we also saw the squat shrimps shaking their tiny tails♡ Their numbers here have been increasing recently, looks like they are having a party!

I love going diving! I hope it won’t be too long until next time… (;´・ω・)

Long time no seen!

The wind blew gently from the north and the sea around Ishigaki island was calm today(≧▽≦) A friend I last met over 8 years ago came to visit Ishigaki and dived with me☆☆
We departed for Osaki and Nagura for fun dives♪♪ I wonder if some other shop has been feeding the Batfishes at Mash 1, they really swam towards us today(;・∀・)

Lots of beautiful healthy corals in Nagura(*^▽^*)

Lots of blue-green damselfishes swam in small schools over the corals, they hide quickly if you approach(;^ω^)

In Osaki, this green sea turtle was having a nap comfortably on the rocks♪♪ Before, the other day we saw giant cuttlefishes here but some irresponsible guide from another shop must have scared them because we only saw one fleeing in the distance!

Lots of spotted garden eels poked their small heads up from the sand☆

An anemone partner shrimp☆・・

Many travel restrictions in place right now, but Ishigaki’s turqoise ocean isn’t going anywhere~\(^o^)/

Clear sky! Ishigaki fun dives

Clear sky over Ishigaki island(≧▽≦) Today, we went diving in Osaki and Nagura area with our guest from yesterday♪
The corals in Nagura are SO beautiful, I will never get tired of diving here(*´▽`*)

A school of small fishes.

This brown-banded pipefish approached us slowly… usually, they are quite shy so I wonder why (;・∀・)

A Durban dancing shrimp was swaying about☆

A big anemone shrimp.

We also found this tiny cute nudibranch♪ It’s small but the feelers are big ~(≧▽≦)

We’ll go out for more fun dives tomorrow again♪Looking forward to it!
