I really enjoyed the full-day snorkeling experience in the Kerema Islands. The staff was very helpful, friendly, and professional. The English-speaking guide did very well with her English. She did an excellent job explaining the expectations, schedule, procedures, and area. She kept us all together as a group and even though I was a solo English-only speaker I felt very included. She helped to point out a beautiful swimming sea turtle. We saw so many amazing fish, sea snakes, coral, and a turtle. The water was so clear and blue. It was absolutely fantastic! The neoprene wet suits were so helpful to keep us afloat and warm. The boat driver and the anchorman did a great job as well. Everyone worked great together to make it an awesome experience. I highly recommend this for those coming to Okinawa.

the best tour to explore the UNESCO sites Iriomote island in half day! We spent time cruising the mangrove forest with kayak and stand up paddle and watch the waterfall and the 3 natural limestone cave. we were lucky to see the endangered Crested serpent eagle in the beginning of the tour! The guide Tomo kun was so knowledgeable about all the mangroves, flowers and animals of the island, he was also helpful and nice tour guiding with family with small child. Also he took the most beautiful pictures we couldn’t take with our phones making our day memorable one Definitely worth visiting the island if you are into the beauty of the nature and animals!

This was such an amazing experience for me and my partner (both first time scuba divers). Once we arrived at the snorkel/scuba diving site and began, there were so many beautiful things to see in the ocean. We enjoyed the scuba diving so much that we couldn't pass up purchasing a second dive. The instructors were very kind and helpful.

It was a super cool activity From start to finish, very well attended by everyone I recommend it to everyone

I was very happy to see the beautiful sea. Also, the staff were kind.
