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.

Despite the initial disorganisation at the rental shop, the boat tour was amazing. The staff was well prepared; Tyler, the instructor who speaks English, was incredibly kind and took wonderful pictures of us snorkelling. The lunch was delicious, and the sea was just breathtaking. We saw plenty of fish and even turtles!!! Next time in Naha I’d choose this tour again.

They had a English translator who provided us with feedback prior to departing. During the trip he was around if anyone had questions. They took you out to where whales are spotted and after awhile of joy seeing one they moved us to another location. They were awesome in pointing out where to look and moving us closer to see the whales

A lot of people were sea sick and the staff was very helpful and provided all required things that were needed. Make sure to take motion sickness medication prior to going! The day started out rough, but ended up being a very nice day with whale families!

The boat ride was fun, the lunch was very tasty, the hot showers felt great and the snorkeling was really good.
