The sea become calm.
So, we could dive without stress today.

At the morning, we went to the dive point of out of the ocean.
There wasn’t big fishes, but we could see various of macro creatures.

This shrimp is called “Emperor shirimp” in English.
They usually live on the seaslug.
The color of the background is so beautiful. So, many Japanese divers likes this satiation.

At second dives, we met so many Greater Amberjack!!!
The size is huge !!!!
This scene is so exciting !!!!

Others, we sould meet Giant frog fish at last dive.

The size is also big!!!
When we went to the area that we don’t usually go, I could find it!!

I think it is important thing to go to the area that we don’t usually go.

Then, the sea condition will be  calm tomorrow!!!!
I wish we will be able to dive without stress.

In this season, we can observe many kinds of breeding behaviors.
Today, I can see rare situation.

It is Anemone fish spawning.

The orange area is eggs.

Anemone fish lay their eggs by rubbing their bellies against rocks.
Even if you want to see it, it’s a rare sight, so if you can see it, you’re very lucky.

If you go to night diving, you can see its egg’s hatch out .

Usually, I entry at 7:00 and exit at 8:15.
The depth is shallow, so you can stay at there  longer than usual diving.

Others, there are many Chicken Grunt at bayside point now.

Sometimes, Big Greater Amberjack appears.

Its size is about 1m.
When it gets closer to us , it so powerful,I think.

In July, we may be able to see coral spawning.
If you want to see it, you will go night diving.

This night diving is little bit late, but it is so wonderful !!
I want everyone to see it!!

Then, It will be nice for diving tomorrow.
I will be able to enjoy diving tomorrow as well.

See you then(^^)/

The turtle that we met is so friendly. The sea turtle is getting closer to us.

There are many kinds of fishes in this area.

A school of Sliver-stripe round fishes is dynamic(^^)
Sometimes, Greater amberjacks are coming.

On the other hand, there are many kinds of macro creature too.
Ghost pipe fish is still the same place where I found yesterday.

Even if the water is clear, I will look for  Nudibranchs.

I could find many Nudibranchs today.
The size is very tiny, so it’s better to use compact digital camera for observing them.


Don’t you think it is beautiful?
Now,  the number of Nudibranchs is increasing.

The water temperature is getting warmer recently .
If you want to come to Kushimoto, Now is the best timing!!

Please come and visit !!

And then, some rare fishes are appearing now.
Today, I can find ghost pipe fish.

When I find it, I’m so happy (^^)
I think the fish of partner is near so that  this fish has eggs in her stomach .
I  will try to find other one again tomorrow.

At last, there are so big frog fish.
The color is black.
So, It is hard to understand  its details.

Can you understand where its eyes and mouth are?

By the way, tomorrow is weekend.
So, many guests will come to our shop.

I hope the sea condition will keep good.
