It was rainy day. But when it is rainy, the sea usually become calm.
That is Kushimoto’s magic?!

And the visibility is still 10m.
The water temperature is 17 degree.

The water temperature is getting warmer, the action of fish is more and more.
We could see chicken grunt today.

In the winter season, I search for sea slug often.
So, I see many fishes for a while (^^;)

Of course,  I search sea slug as well.

Do you know this sea slug eat the eggs of other sea slugs?
Some sea slug eat eggs or sea slug.

I went to the area where I haven’t been for a long time.
When I arrive at that area, I was surprised !!

Same frog fish have been staying at the same place!!!!

I think this place is good for eating food!!!
We have to avoid irritation!!!

the number of guest will be increasing after that time.
I hope the guest from overseas more and more.

I want everyone to know Kushimoto’s sea charm.

See you then(^^)/

This is Bluelined angelfish.
When it grow up, the color is changing completely.

The frog fish that I could find yesterday is still in the same place.
The color is so beautiful.

I hope the frogfish is staying at the same place for a long time.

Now, there are many baby jawfish now.
It is so tiny and cute!!

At last, I will show you rare fish.
Have you ever seen it?

The fish is very unique shape.
The name is Short dragonfish.

It is so rare.
But it i good at hiding, so it is so hard to find it quickly.

I managed to dive for a day.

Water Temperature: 23~27℃
Wind Direction:Southeast(2~3m/s)
Swell: 1.0~1.5m
Visibility:8~12m
★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★

We think the swell is getting bigger than yesterday.
But, it doesn’t  become bigger.

So, I can dive without stress for a day.

I teach the guest how to take a natural buoyancy underwater.
Finally, he can be good at taking natural buoyancy well.

When we make a safety stop, he can stay at the same depth without holding line.
I’m happy that he can get adjusting buoyancy skill.

As for underwater creature, we can see various one.

First, we can see puffer.
It is big puffer, the size is 50cm.
It swim slowly, so we can take a picture of it and hang out with it.

Then, small frog fish still stay at the same place.
It stay at the hole to escape the swell.

When it hade in the hole, it is difficult to find.

Others, we can see cute eel.
The mouth is yellow, so it is photogenic.

The forecast said the swell will be bigger tomorrow.
I hope we can also dive tomorrow .

See you then.
