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.

Please come and visit us!!

See you then(^^)/

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.

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 was rainy at morning, but it will be sunny afternoon.
So, it is warm on the ground today. But the water temperature is little bit low.

The water temperature of the bottom area is about 20 degree.
After doing diving for 45 min, I feel little bit cold.

The water temperature is low but underwater creatures are still active now.
There are many baby fishes.

I can see baby eel today.
The size is 5mm. It’s so tiny and cute!!

When getting angry, this eel is shaking neck.
The appearance is so cute.

And I can find tiny shrimp.

The academic name is so long…
It is called “Pliopontonia furtive anemone shrimp” .

The shrimp lives in disk coral. They pinch its coral by their leg.
So, I  cannot see anything on the coral.
But, sometimes the shrimps appear from coral.

If you can see it, you’re lucky.

At other area, there are many young damsels.

The number of damsel that usually lives in southern area is getting increase.
This damsel like a warm water. So I can see it in summer season.

At last, I can find boxer crab.

I can find it at the dive point of out of the ocean as usual.
But, I could find it in the bay side area today.

When I find this crab, I feel so happy.
