We went to the area that has many gobies.

I could meet same goby which was seen in last year.
I was relived that the goby still lives.

The water temperature is getting warmer and warmer.
So, the activity of fish is more active.

Many Jaw fish aim foods.

Sometimes, they jump out from their house.

I saw rare situation yesterday.
Male ray courting a female ray.  I had never seen its situation before.

I was so excited !!!!!

They come to our shop with the desire to try drysuit diving.

Requests for dry suit diving have been increasing recently.
We hold dry suit diving courses from time to time, so please contact us if you are interested.

Then, I went to diving two times.
At first dive, I could find tiny frog fish.

The size is less than 1cm. There are so many frog fish such as the same size.

And there are also many sea slug.

 

The sea slug is  trinchesia sp.25.
It is called “Macchibo-mino umiushi” in Japanese.
