It was rainy day today.
But, the sea condition is very calm.
So, we can enjoy diving without stress.
At first dive, I can see school of Chicken Grunt.
I think the number of Chicken Grunt is 500.
The scale is very dynamic !!!
Also, I can find rare seaslug.
It is tiny usually, but the seaslug is 1cm.
So, it is easy to observe it in details.
At last dive, I can find sea turtle.
She didn’t run away quickly .
I cannot catch up with turtle, but I can observe it for long time.
And, many bigfin reef squid was spawning today.
I guess I can observe the spawning behavior tomorrow also.
I will enjoy diving tomorrow.
The water temperature is getting warmer.
So, the number of diver who wear a wetsuit is getting more, I think.
We have a space for booking in weekday.
Please come and visit us!!

Water Temperature: 17~19℃
Wind Direction: Northwest→Sortheast(3~6m/s)
It was heavy rain yesterday.
Some area damaged by heavy rain.
After rainy day, the visibility is usually getting worse, but today visibility of the sea is so good!!
We can see that situation sometimes.
The white area is freshwater that is coming from river, and then blue area is sea water.
Its situation is rare, I think.
Because, this situation is not something you can see even if you want to see it.
Isn’t this gradation beautiful.?
When I dive today, I can see many kinds of baby fish.
The number of juvenile fish is expected to increase.
The Glass Goby stay at beautiful place.
This polyps looks like flower I think.
The end of diving, I can meet friendly sea turtle.
The sea turtle doesn’t run away at all.
So, we can get closer to her.
Her face is very cute. We hung out with her for ten minutes.
The number of sea turtle is getting more after May.
It becomes easy to meet her after that season.
If you want to see a sea turtle, I recommend you to come May through September.
We will dive three times tomorrow.
I hope the visibility is still good.
See you then(^^)/

First dive after typhoon No.14 passed
September 21, 2022
Ground Temperature: 20~27℃
Water Temperature: 26~27℃
Wind Direction: Southeast(3m/s)
The typhoon named “Nanmadol” passed Kushimoto two days ago.
Today, we can do first dive after the typhoon passed.
The typhoon had strong power while it came Japan.
The scenery in the sea is very strong so that the ocean was stormy.
I have to research under water creature where it is.
But, I can find some creatures that we have known before typhoon effect.
First one is Garden-eel.
The Garden-eel was eating.
And sea turtle is still in Kushimoto.
She is so friendly, so we can observe her very close distance.
Last one is Blue tang that modeled for the movie “Finding Dory”.
At last dive, I can find new creature.
That is goby named Spotted prawn-goby.
There are three goby in the same point.
It seems that more and more new creatures will be seen from now on.
It will be rainy tomorrow…
I hope it doesn’t affect the transparency.
Bye for now!!

In the morning, the visibility is very good!!
When I see the surface, the sea water seems like crystal blue.
We can see so many sea turtles today.
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 !!

Hi, this is Hirotaka from Nanki Seamans Club.
I’m sorry that I couldn’t write blog for a while.
We cannot dive in Kushimoto for four days due to strong wind and high waves.
But, The sea become calm today.
So,we can dive in our dive site for the first time in many years.
I dived with the guest who have never dived Kushimoto today.
So, I introduce the major creatures of Kushimoto.
At first, I introduced Scarbreast tuskfish.
I think it’s a representative fish of Kushimoto.
When the Scarbreast tuskfish find diver, he start chasing divers.
It’s like a dog chasing the owner and it’s cute(^^)
And, when I take launch with guest, I received a request to see sea turtle and Longtooth grouper. So I search for them in the second dive.
As a result, I can meet both of them.
The sea turtle is resting on the rock.
It was a sea turtle that never escaped even when diver was approaching.
So, we can take a photograph with the sea turtle easily.
The guest was very satisfied.
The forecast said the wind will get stronger tomorrow.
I guess we cannot dive in Kushimoto again….
We will go to Sue diving center tomorrow.
