2016-06-21 14.51.06This is the perfect way to enjoy the “Kerama Blue” ocean from both above and below the surface for an entire day. The tour takes you to three of the Keramas' four most popular snorkeling spots -- Zamami, Kuro, Tokashiki and Gishibu islands -- where the chance of encountering sea turtles is very high. The tour takes place on a privately owned cruise vessel, which offers a great setting for relaxing and unwinding while taking in a splendid view of the blue ocean and sky and white sand beaches when you're not exploring underwater.

After the morning snorkeling sessions, you'll enjoy a lunch break aboard the vessel and then the third snorkeling session in the afternoon.

Style: Shared with other participants (not a private charter)
