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!!

The waves were high yesterday but today is a calm.
We can dive easier than yesterday.

Today, we practice to take a pictures  of macro creatures with using microscope mode by OLUMPUS.

When you take a picture of Nudibranchs, it is useful!!
This mode can shoot 1mm object.

As soon as I told the guest how to shoot in the morning,  he mastered the microscope  mode.

This size is 1mm. But, He took a perfect picture of it.
I was surprised at how quickly he could take a perfect picture .

We can also meet beautiful Nudibranch.

It is so beautiful, isn’t it?
When I find it, I’m so happy.

In the end , he took such a beautiful picture.

If you can master the microscope  mode, there will be more ways to enjoy diving, I think.

There aren’t many guests in the coming season, so it’s perfect for practicing.

Please come and visit us.
