Whale Watching is a very popular marine activity in a winter. The one departing from Chatan port, is in operation through 1/7-3/31 of 2017. Since it is a limited seasonal activity, the space on boats are sold out very fast especially for weekends. Advanced reservation is highly recommended.
This whale watching tour departs twice a day from Miegusuku Port in Naha. Whale watching is one of the most popular winter activities in Okinawa and can be enjoyed from late December until early April, when a number of humpback whales come to Okinawa from Siberian waters in search of warmer climes to mate and give birth to their young. It's an amazing experience to watch whales gliding through the water and exhibiting their customary moves right before your eyes.
