Second dive at Ishigaki - After a cold and windy SI we went back to the warm waters, to enjoy the scenery. We went through a swim-through and visited several coral patches... beautiful.

Visit to Okinawa, mostly for diving. We dived several sites at the Kerama islands, near Naha, the main city of Okinawa, and Taketomi, next to Ishigaki island.
