The Kushimoto’s sea has very big waves and strong winds.
So, we cannot dive in Kushimoto area.

I went to other diving site which is called “Uchiura beach”.
It is first time to dive in this season.

There are usually many fishes in this point.

And there are also many kinds of macro creatures.


I could find out Pikachu sea slug.
I kept searching this sea slug for a month.

Finally, I can find it!!!
When I find it, I feel so happy!!!

And I met Lion fish that has beautiful fin!!
This fin is so beautiful, isn’t it??

At last dive, I met cattle fish.
When it feel stress or getting angry, its color change to beautiful color.

In winter season, the day which we cannot dive in Kushimoto area due to strong wind is getting more.

So, I think the time that going to Uchiura is more and more.
This point is so fun for diving.

Our dive site has so many diving point.
So, you can see various situations if you come to here.

We think the swell is getting bigger than yesterday.
But, it doesn’t  become bigger.

So, I can dive without stress for a day.

I teach the guest how to take a natural buoyancy underwater.
Finally, he can be good at taking natural buoyancy well.

When we make a safety stop, he can stay at the same depth without holding line.
I’m happy that he can get adjusting buoyancy skill.

As for underwater creature, we can see various one.

First, we can see puffer.
It is big puffer, the size is 50cm.
It swim slowly, so we can take a picture of it and hang out with it.

Then, small frog fish still stay at the same place.
It stay at the hole to escape the swell.

When it hade in the hole, it is difficult to find.

Others, we can see cute eel.
The mouth is yellow, so it is photogenic.

The forecast said the swell will be bigger tomorrow.
I hope we can also dive tomorrow .

See you then.

The water temperature changes daily for a few days.
But, today, it become warmer than yesterday.

The scenery of the sea has become like summer.
I have been able to see many tropical underwater creaures.

On the other hands, we can see various of sea slug in summer season.
It causes low water temperature I think.

We can see many sea slugs in winter season as usual.
But, many sea slug can be observed in this year.

On the top of rock, there is a Anthias.

Sometimes, Male fish can also be seen courting female fish.
When he do so, he swim so fast around female fish.

It is very interesting !!!

On next weekends, the guest from overseas will come to our shop.
I hope the water temperature is getting warm.
