On February 17, a humpback whale swam with dozens of dolphins in the sea off the western area of Ishigaki Island. Diving shop Ohana owner Yuki Fujii took photographs of them.

According to Fujii, about 10-meter long whale swam slowly and comfortably beside dozens of dolphins.

Fujii said, “When I noticed them, I was watching from on the ship but, I moved in closer with a snorkel because they were swimming so comfortably. I took some photographs of them. It was impressive.”
