Ready to get into the water!

1, 2 ~1, 2~

Practicing breathing using host
Even you are beginners,
it is easy to learn!
Nothing to worry!

Since the water pressure inside water is different from outside. 
Earplugs are required inside water.
It was a little bit scary at first.

- Pinch the nose to breath, let your ears opened.
-Swallow and let your ears opened.

If you feel uneasy on your ears because of the water pressure,
you can try opening up your ears.







Slowly get into the water
Seize the ladder ...

One , two
one, two..

After you get used to breathe in the water, 
you can pull the rope and get more downward.

Getting down with the safety rope, 
Cover your ears every 1m, 
to avoid your ears damaged because of the water pressure.
You can adjust slowly by yourself.






Pulling the safety rope, 
one, two, 
one, two, 
getting down to the sea.




1m , 1m , diving slowly




Okay!!!
From here!!
Let's start enjoying this beautiful world under the water!





Wearing a piezometer with you
as long as it doesn't reach the red part, you will be fine!
Professional instructors will check it for you! No worry!





Getting inside the water a while, 
you will get used to it!
Then, making fun reaction maybe.

Professional instructors will call you any times then!

We fed them, got closed to them
and had chance to take pictures with them!

Sea Christmas Tree

It is known as Christmas tree in the sea!
A little bit mysterious
You can only see these creatures under the sea!
They are to shy to hide when you touch them.
