Eastside of Baras island
This diving site is located near Barasu island, a small island made of a debris of coral chips that derived its name from the Japanese word for “debris.” Above the bommies are schools of peach fairy basslet, yellow and blueback fusilier, and lunar fusilier dancing flamboyantly setting the atmosphere. Porites can also be found at this place with a wealth of things to see.
The aspiration of many divers, this diving site is located to the east of Nakanokami-shima, more commonly known as Ogan. Under the water, a colossal bedrock erects as though a skyscraper had been sunken. If you wait to observe migratory fish at the tip of the rock, you will be able to see over-1-meter long dogtooth tuna, giant trevally, Spanish mackerel, humphead wrasse, and barracuda, swim across riding on the strong waves.
The deep V-shaped cut on bommies located a distance from the drop-off site along the reef is the unique point of this diving site situated to the west of Kuroshima. The numerous amount of fish that gather here is its charming point, with dancing butterflyfish and dark-banded fusilier among the features of this area. You can also expect to run into large sea creatures such as the humphead wrasse, and sea turtles. The hawkfish anthias around 25 meters under water is popular with photography lovers.
Located near Aragusuku island a.k.a. Panari, this spot lives up to its name as the Palace of the Dragon King. The enormous space of white seabed decorated by crimson red Ryukyu fan corals and soft corals makes it an extremely alluring sight to behold. You can also encounter the hawkfish, a shallow water fish that lives in the shallowest of waters.
This is a diving site where there is an extremely high possibility of meeting Ishigaki island’s large sea creatures. Apart from dogtooth tuna, you can also encounter barracuda, sixbanded trevally, giant trevally, and humphead wrasse. Around where corals and soft corals grow, you can also enjoy watching bountiful butterflyfish, and redband anthias.
