Dive location


Secret Reef is a jumbled, sandy dive site. Even if you get the signal “Here’s a creature”, you may lose sight of the small creatures while waiting for your turn to see them.
A Seagrass ghost pipefish(JP:KamisoriUo) wobbling around.
It is a cute fish with black and white dorsal fins and yellow spots. His name is Cardinalfish species(JP:Miyako Ishimochi). I looked it up, and it seems that they like sand and mud places.
A type of scorpionfish japanese called “Shimahime Yamanokami”, which had a coral as a bed and was fully contained.
This is the most popular Flamboyant cuttlefish with a very beautiful color! This is what you want to see when you dive into Puerto Galera Bay!
A baby onyx scorpionfish. It was so cute to move around like that!
Mimicry is really amazing. The flounder that almost erases the photo data by mistake.
From a distance, it looks only like a piece of stick. We call him “Waka Youji” in Japan.
It’s a minnow nudibranch called Philodesmium crypticum. You can often see strange things like this in the bay.
The glittering blue of the goby bothered me. Isn’t it a kind of black lily goby? I think.
A white seahorse that won’t look at me. It is characterized by a number of thorns and a long rostrum.
By the way, today’s clarity was like this! LOL.
There is also a small juvenile fish, a small nudibranch called “Pikachu”!
