Dive location


This fish is called Roland Damsel, which I uploaded the other day. It’s hard to get a good focus, but it’s a very beautiful fish. Be sure to look for it when you’re in Puerto Galera!
What do you think it is, a Yanoki pygmy goby in japnese? This one also caught my eye because of the beautiful blue spots.
This is a view of the wreck at Monkey Beach. A little before the photo, air is accumulating in the wreck. You can even go in quietly and show your face!
There were three big fishes under the boat, a yellow ribbon sweetlips with three prominent lines and a yellow snappers , and some other fish.
I’m sure you’ll want to take a picture of it when you find it! It’s called a caramel nudibranch in japan.
We also got a good look at the pink anemonefish!
I think it’s a Black barchromis. There seem to be few of them in Japan.
Monkey Beach also has a lot of coral spread and pretty places! Is the blue fish inside a juvenile of the Namisu damselfish?
The second half of the day we rode a gentle current to the east. A school of Barracuda passed by!
It was not very clear, but there were a lot of black snappers and it was a very lively fun dive at the end!
After dive, it was AB Wonder’s special hamburger on this day, too!
