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(^^)/

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.

The water temperature is getting warmer at the morning but  finally it is changes the same temperature as yesterday…

At the morning, we could see Japanese angel shark.

The shark is usually seen in winter season.
It looks like stingray, doesn’t it??

Due to the meandering of the Kuroshio Current, the underwater environment is also changing slightly.
The fish lives in east area few years ago, but it is seen in Kushimoto area recently.

Also, there is cute eel in bay side area.

The color of the mouth is beautiful(^^)
So, I like this fish!!!

We can observe fish breeding behavior in this season.
Now, many Jawfish protect their eggs in their mouth.

But, Jawfish was eating some food toady…

Sometimes, they jump out from their home.
When they jump out, we can see all of their body.
The case is rare.

We can see this scene in this season only.

The activity of goby is getting more and more.

We usually go to the goby area in summer season.
But, many goby stay out of the home in this year.
It looks like we’ll be seeing a lot of gobies this year.

Have you ever seen this fish??

The shape is strange.
The fish walk on the sand with using their fins.

The shape and behavior is so interesting !!!

Others, there are so many kinds of macro creatures in Kushimoto area.

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!!!

See you then(^^)/

The color is colorful, so I like it!!!

I have been going night diving a lot lately.
It is so fun because you can see different creatures than you can see during the day.

And we can see closer than the day.
Because many fishes sleep in night.

There are so many jelly fish lately.

Even safety stops are enjoyable here.
I want everyone to go night diving.

Some sea slug eat eggs or sea slug.

I went to the area where I haven’t been for a long time.
When I arrive at that area, I was surprised !!

Same frog fish have been staying at the same place!!!!

I think this place is good for eating food!!!
We have to avoid irritation!!!

I hope the guest from overseas more and more.
