It was rain today…
But the rain can also have positive effects!!

It is easier to see spawning behavior of Big-fin reef squid when it is rainy day.
We could see the spawning behavior today that’s why today is raining.

The behavior is so dynamic things!!
We want everyone to see this.

In this term, many kinds of underwater creatures lay an eggs.
For example , Anemone fish have a eggs recently.

Father Anemone fish protect his eggs until hatch out.
If you are lucky, you may be able to see the situation of hatch out in night diving.

The water temperature is getting warmer.
It was 20~21 degree. I hope water temperature  will be more higher soon.

At last, I show you this pic.

A dolphins come near our port.
When we go to the dive point, we can see the dolphin every time.

Dolphin  sometimes came to Kushimoto , But it is rare to stay at the same place for two days.

I wish this dolphin stay at Kushimoto for a long time.

See you then(^^)/

The visibility and W.temp is almost same as yesterday.

But it is getting better in the afternoon.
I hope the sea condition will be better soon!!!

At first dive, we could see cute and rare frogfish.

It is hard to see this frogfish because they usually lives under the rock.
We were so lucky to be able to see it!!!

At second dive, we were so lucky!!!!!!
That’s why we could meet two Hummer head shark and it was very close!!!!!

Unfortunately ,we couldn’t take a pics of that.
But we can see them completely !!!! Today’s guest is super lucky!!!!

I went to diving for seeing a school of fishes and Ecological behavior of underwater creautres.

In this season, Big-fin reef squid is laying an eggs on seaweed.

The size is so big, so we can see the exciting situation in our dive site now!!!

And some Anemone fish also lay an eggs.

We can see the eggs for the first time in this year!!!
I think many Anemone fish will start laying an eggs after this time.

I want to show you this fishes the best today!!

There are so many Chicken Grunt in bayside area.
The number would be 500 I guess.
It’s so dynamic !!!! It looks like Barracuda, doesn’t it??

We can meet a school of fishes at end of the dive.

They suddenly get close to us and swam around us!!!
It is so lucky thing!!!!

The water temperature is changing day by day.
But, it is getting warmer and warmer.

It was heavy rain yesterday.
It makes the visibility down.

The visibility is 5~8m today, but there are still many fishes.
Especially , I was surprised that the water temperature was changing completely today.

The lowest water temperature is 17 degree, unless around the surface water temperature is 21 degree.
What’s happened ?!?!

Many fishes was also surprised I guess.
Some fishes were laying an eggs but another one don’t move at all at the bottom.

In this season, many fish originally lay an eggs and protect their eggs.
But, the number of fish that lay or protect eggs in this year.

On the other hands, we can see various of sea slug now.
Now water temperature makes us to see easily as usual .

I could find rare sea slug today.
4-5 years ago, we often can see this sea slug, but now we sometimes can see it.

At second dive, we meet a school of Greater Amberjack.
There are so many fishes in Kushimoto area now!!

The ground temperature is getting warm.
So, the diving season will be coming soon!!!

It looks like Orangutan, isn’t it?
So we call it “Orangutan crab”.

And then, we often saw this crab as well.

The body color is so beautiful!!
There are many different color types.

In this season, we are able to see the  protecting eggs behavior of some fishes.

Father Jawfish usually protect their eggs in their mouth.
If you observe their mouth cautiously, you may be able to see many eggs in the mouth.

Others, there are so many kinds of underwater creatures now.
You must enjoy diving in Kushimoto in this term.

I want many overseas people to come to Kushimoto for diving!!

At first dive, he could find sea turtle by himself!!

When he find sea turtle at first, I couldn’t see it.
But the sea turtle come back to us!!!

We are so lucky today!!!!

And, I show hime tiny sea slug as well.

Macro diving is the popular style in Japan.
So, when the overseas guest come to our shop, I always show such a small things.

Then we will go to the area which held “Koinobori” underwater.

Today is called “Children’s day” in Japan.
It is a tradition to decorate carp streamers on Children’s day in Japan.

It was nice timing to dive!!!!

The water temperature is about 20 degree now.
The number of the guest who wear a wetsuit is getting more.

When the water temperature  become more than 20 degree, we can see a spawning behavior of Big fin reef squid.

Now is holiday week in Japan.
It is called Golden week.

Many Japanese  people go to somewhere for hanging out.
But this year’s Golden Week has three weekdays.
So, today has not many divers in Kushimoto area.

On the other hands, the sea condition is so nice.
We can enjoy diving without stress.

We can see this situation on rainy day.
The situation is so beautiful!!!
The diver who take a picture likes this situation.

I went to Izu peninsula for studying how to find sea slug.
The result of the study were put out to good use today.

I learned how to find sea slug that hide under the small rock.
I try to use this skill today,  then I could find out many kinds of sea slug!!!

I was so happy to be able to find sea slugs!!!
I think it is important thing to learn new knowledge and skills.

We can also observe spawning behavior in this season.

We could observe the spawning of seaweed.
The eggs is tiny. It is difficult to see with our eyes.
It is better to use camera for observing its situation.

Others, there are various of underwater creatures now.

I think you can enjoy diving in Kushimoto area now.
I want everyone to come to Kushimoto now!!!

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 !!!!!

Tomorrow will be weekdays.
There is not many divers at the sea in weekdays.
So, we could see many underwater creatures in our pace.
