It was heavy rain yesterday.
So, I’m worried about sea condition today.

But, the condition is so good.
Water temperature was 23 degrees and the visibility is 12m.

After rainy day, we can sometimes see this situation.

Around surface is filled with fresh water and bottom side is filled with sea water.
When this situation is happened, we can see this scene which looks like aurora.

Today, we can also see so many silver striped round herrings.

When they go through on us, it becomes dark underwater.
It is so dynamic !!!!

The water temperature become 23 degree, so some damsel start protecting their eggs.

Other fishes start ecological behavior soon, I guess.
I’m looking forward to seeing this behavior!!!

Also, we can still see many sea slug.
They are so beautiful!!!

If you like sea slug, here is the best place for searching sea slug I guess.

Although it will be rainy day tomorrow, sea will be calm.
We will be able to enjoy diving in calm condition.

See you then(^^)/
