In Summer, on the calm mild weather day, we get to dive the various dive sites in Okinawa.
Yamada, is one of them, where we have so many ‘interesting’ creatures that live in the Sandy bottom area of the ocean.
I would like to introduce amaing macro photos by Dr. Klaus Stiefel here from our dives last year.
The one above is a Snake Eel. We can find at least one for you.
This is a Messmate Pipefish. About 10cm big.
The one below is the eyes of a Flounder.
Alright, for this, you need to dive the same place many many times to find them, or, you need to have good friends to share latest information about the unique sea creatures.
Can you tell that it has eggs?
The pair of Ghoast Pipefish have been hanging out there for a while.
Here is a close-up photo of ‘funny face’ Giant Frogfish.
Wanna see some cool stuff with us?

When we have typhoons, we directions change a lot. With the strong South wind from approaching typhoons, we have many chance to dive Yamada in this season.
