Green Marker

Located near the green marker of Hija Fishing Port in Japan, this dive site offers a captivating underwater experience. Situated to the north of the Hija River mouth, the site is easily accessible. The main attraction is the expansive reef that spans from east to west, stretching across the sandy seabed. With a maximum depth of 20 meters and visibility reaching up to 16 meters, this site is suitable for divers of all levels – from beginners to advanced and expert divers.

The shallow areas, which are about 5 meters deep, are teeming with soft corals, creating a vibrant and colorful underwater landscape. As you venture further south, the deeper regions reveal a sandy muddy bottom. One notable feature of this dive site is a peculiar boulder on the deepest part of the western side. Resembling granite, it is often referred to as a "stone circle." It is believed that this boulder may have been a tombstone from a ship's cargo. The reasons behind its presence in this particular location remain unknown, adding an air of mystery to the dive.

The marine life at this dive site is abundant and diverse. Species such as the orthodox spiny dogfish, wrasse, butterflyfish, and sea otters can be commonly observed.
