Are we back to the rainy season…? The rainy season usualy ends around June 20th, so it should be matter of time. Compared with the rainy season around the main islands of Japan where it rains almost all the time, we have rain and sun on and off during the season.

 

Many guests ask us “what if it rains?”. Well, we just go diving!

 

The first dive of the day was at Kabira manta city, and a manta was at work from the first thing in the morning 🙂
After a bit of wait, this nice looking creature quietly approached the cleaning station from behind, and circled over the reef couple of times.

 

The second and the third dives of the day were at Sukuji bay and Osaki area. Square-spot fairy basslet lives around 25m deep, and is one of the must-see around the area. Stunningly beautiful.

 

We found couple of nudibranch. Glossodoris cruenta and Nembrotha cristata.

 


Flatworm looks like nudibranch, but it is not the same.

 

Sexy Shrimp, father and son. Probably.

 

Green turtle of Osaki is not shy. Or they don’t care about us….

 

Congratulations Pirya for your certification as Enriched Air Diver!

Enriched air, or Nitrox, is commonly used overseas, and is becoming gradually popular in Japan. You can be certified in one day, so highly recommended if you don’t have it yet!

 

Probably rainy again tomorrow. But does it matter? No! Let’s go diving?
