Half-day ‘experience diving’ tour

Departure from Naha City

Kerama Islands

 

Are you on a tight schedule and looking for a way to experience the famous Kerama Blue through snorkeling or diving? This half-day tour is the perfect solution for you, making it possible to enjoy not only snorkeling and “experience diving” but also a 40-minute cruise to the Kerama Islands in half a day.

The tour takes you to one diving/snorkeling point from among Kuro, Mae, Nagannu, Kuefu and Kamiyama islands. All these points offer an extraordinary level of transparency, and you can easily see colorful tropical fish from above the water’s surface. After the “experience diving” session, you can either enjoy snorkeling (free) or an additional dive for an extra fee of 6,000 yen.

Many people book far in advance, and seats sell out quickly, particularly in summer, so early reservations are recommended.

*English, Cantonese, Mandarin, Spanish, Portuguese speaking instructors are available for scuba diving and snorkeling.
