What people are saying about Okinawa

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.

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 really fun. Nice experience. Okinawa is the best place to Parasailing. Wide area and beautiful beaches.

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

Everything was organized and well planned. Thanks for a great time!
