Hello guys!! While we are not able to work during this Golden week we have been doing a few exploration dives by shore and we have been finding so many rare and different sea life in Okinawa waters!!
One of our very impressive findings was the super rare Mototi octopus. This octopus is very small in size 10cm to an armspam of 20 cm. It it possible to identify them because of the pair of iridescent blue rings act as false eyes to scare off potential predators. This octopus can be found from Okinawa thought the south Pacific. It was very special to witness a bit of this amazing Cephalopod.
We also could see the beautiful bastard pipehorse that is quite common at this time of the year in Okinawa, emperor shrimp, Scorpion Devilfish, anemone fish and we also could witness a frenzy of fish at night and an anemone that captured many of those for feeding.
Okinawa is for sure a great place for either beginner divers or more advanced divers including underwater photographers because of its abundance of marine diversity and different style of dives.
Here are some of the pictures of what we talked about in this post:
We hope you enjoyed this post and we hope to see you soon in Okinawa for some dives when is safe again!
