Japanese TV Team arrived.

Recently mostly great vizability (20m+) with 29C average temp.
On a couple of dives, due to plankton, the clarity was reduced a little but then lots of reef activity.
A Japanese Team have been filming a documentary for Japanese TV program call "A message from the sea" by TV ASAHI about Cha Cha Owners and life here underwater. 
The cameraman used 4 cameras and necessary strobes including macro lens to catch the
littlest of critters, like ornate ghost pipe fish.
Dove also in the rain with Tobias and Gerd who braved the weather and went for it… Great dives and both very happy they made the effort to get out of bed.
