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.

It was one of the most unforgettable once in a lifetime experience I had & at the same time my most thrilling birthday as I celebrated my 31st under the sea. It was tough especially if it is your first time but the staffs were all so accomodating & so kind to everyone that is why they will help you conquer the fear & worries from within. You should maintain a complete presence of mind while under the sea & during the entire activity for it may cause harm or death.

It was a wonderfull experience. Crystal clear water gorgeous coral reef and beautiful marine life. The dive instructor was very friendly and kind and always smiling they even helped be get back back my camera from the sea floor which accidentally fell while i took a jump from the boat. Overall five star experience for beginner like me. If possible I hope to get back next year aswell.

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.

The tour was more than I expected. I was very pleasantly surprised, and the guide took extra care to make sure I was safe the entire time. I really appreciated it.
