    I’ve heard more and more reports this year of Blue Ring Octopus sightings around the dive sites in Taiwan. Especially up north. They have been seen in LongDong Bay, Meishan, the swimming pool, and other places. I’ve missed a few sightings while out with friends on the same dive (x2 to be exact).

    Fortunately this weekend I was able to see one for myself… it was a great encounter as he was out in the open hunting. We actually saw a blue ring octopus on both dives that day.

    Hey yumi

    Welcome to the forum! Where are you located? and where did you do your OWD training?

    The place you learned to dive is a good place to start if you are looking to go diving again. There is lots of diving going on in Taiwan, less up north at the moment because many believe it is too cold in the winter months.. lol

    Still warm water down in Kenting, Green Island, Orchid Island or XiaoLiu Qiu to name a few places. Check out the whats going on this weekend thread and try to join some others.

    Yup, that is one of the awesome things about diving you see some remarkable sights.

    Just need to be a little careful with some creatures, for instance the blue ring octopus is one of the most venomous creatures in the world.. that said they need to bite (they have a beak like a bird), so actually getting a bite is extremely rare.

    Wow what a gorgeous animal. I have never seen anything like this before. Looking forward to seeing some truly beautiful life when I start diving!
