I go to 3 dives in a day with the guests who like small creatures.
One of the guest want to see Pigmy Sea Horse and Phycocaris simulans.

So, I try to find out it.
As a result, I can find out them.

When I would be happy if I could meet the requests.

Japanese Pigmy Seahorse is about 1cm.
It’s very small and cute!!

There is Emperor Shrimp in our dive site.

These color is so beautiful!! I like this combination(^^)

★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★

We go to the point of out of ocean today.
The visibility is about 15~20m. It’s so nice!!

Then, I can meet rare moray.
The color of their mouth is yellow.

But, this moray live in deep area. So if you want to see it, I recommend you to use enriched air Nitrox.

And, I can also find colorful Nudibranchia.

This Nudibranchia has three types of color that are purple, red and green.
I like this color the best.

Last, I found red shrimp.

It is called it “Umiushi-kakure-ebi” in japanese. It is called “Emperor Shrimp” in Eng.
The name means that the shrimp hide in Nudibranchia in Japanese.

The condition might be calm tomorrow .
I hope I can enjoy diving!!
