Jimmy's birthday dinner with all divemasters and Yuki and Asako-san.


Crazy crazy day today!!!! It was one of the most evenful day today for our divers here at SWV today. This morning, Bobby's group saw a hammerhead and a manta ray during the first dive in Sipadan and in the second dive the same group saw a manta ray again and a devil ray!! Other than that, they also saw the school of barracudas. While Jay's group saw a school of bumphead parrotfish feeding in the first dive. To add to that, Lee's group saw a leopard shark during the third dive in Sipadan. Cool right??!!
