Hi everyone!

The weather changed quickly during the day – it rained, and then turned sunny. And the sea condition changed, too – it was flat in the morning, but it turned rough as the wind started to pick up.

As for our dive cruise, we went to Taketomi area for three dives. We saw lots of sea life, from tiny ones to huge ones 🙂

 

Little creatures home is a place to watch this Nimo, which lives on the top of a reef rock. In a way it is easy to take a photo, as the entire anemone is visible. But the Nimo moves quickly, and it is hard to take a shot at the right moment…

 

Michel’s ghost goby – this one can be found everywhere around Taketomi.

The white part in the belly is probably the eggs.

 

Searched around mostly on the sand area.

 

And this was the biggest one – dogtooth tuna!

Probably around 2m long. Check out its mouth. Definitely has much bigger mouth than the tuna you often see in the fish market!

 

It will be April tomorrow. Hope it will be sunny 🙂
