    Did not manage to see the whale (it's not a guarantee) but the tour was conducted professionally and took the necessary safety precautions (such as wearing life vest on the boat etc). As the boat ride can be bumpy, not recommended for those who are sea sick as there were many tourists who puke during the ride.

    The shop was so good which they proactively connected me through whatsapp when I just arrived at Okinawa, and made sure we can find the pick up point with pictures, map code. They explained the itinerary and do and don’t very clearly. They were so pro and found us the whale for several times. The weather was so good and our family (total 8 ppl) were so happy to do whale watching. But some of mainland China tourists made the trip imperfect which they kept talking loudly when the staff had telling the rules, we couldn’t hear which the staff had to asked them to keep silent.
  • Jia Min 6 Apr 2018

  • Poon Nian 31 Mar 2018
    Everything was well arranged. They contacted us the day before via whats App to direct us on the meeting point. The boat sailed to different areas to wait for the whales to appear and we got to see 3-4 whales!
  • Kok Cheong 29 Mar 2018
    A must-have when you are travelling to Okinawa during the Winter/Spring season. You can really see the whale, but don't forget applying your sunblock :)
