Hi, this is Hirotaka from Nanki Seamans Club.
I’m sorry that I couldn’t write blog for a while.

We cannot dive in Kushimoto for four days due to strong wind and high waves.

But, The sea become calm today.
So,we can dive in our dive site for the first time in many years.

I dived with the guest who have never dived Kushimoto today.
So, I introduce the major creatures of Kushimoto.

At first, I introduced Scarbreast tuskfish.
I think it’s a representative fish of Kushimoto.

When the Scarbreast tuskfish find diver, he start chasing divers.
It’s like a dog chasing the owner and it’s cute(^^)

And, when I take launch with guest, I received a request to see sea turtle and Longtooth grouper. So I search for them in the second dive.

As a result, I can meet both of them.

The sea turtle is resting on the rock.
It was a sea turtle that never escaped even when diver was approaching.

So, we can take a photograph with the sea turtle easily.
The guest was very satisfied.

The forecast said the wind will get stronger tomorrow.
I guess we cannot dive in Kushimoto again….

We will go to Sue diving center tomorrow.
