Recently, the visibility of Kushimoto is very good.
So, we can dive without stress.

The sea water is so clear.
Sometimes, we can meet rare fish that is usually living in the deeper area.

I can meet this rare fish on last Wednesday.

The fish usually swim near surface.
So, if you want to find it, you should keep neutral buoyancy in 1~3m.

But, I want you to observe it, because it is so cute!!!

There also other macro creatures.
I found the unique situation.

The crab is hiding in this picture.
Could you find it??

Most Japanese diver like this situation .

Today, we cannot dive in Kushimoto area.
So, we went to another dive site.

But, there are many rare macro creatures.

In the first dive, I can found mimic octopus .

It changes shape to imitate a fish or some underwater creatures.
So, It is so fun to observe it.

And, we can see cute fish in this dive site.

The goby and fish live in the same place.

At last, we can see rare sea slug.

It walks on the sand.
I have never seen it before, so I’m so happy to find it.

Then, we may not be able to dive in Kushimoto area.
We may be going to dive in Sue area tomorrow.

I hope I will be able to dive in Kushimoto tomorrow.
