It a interesting experience but pls remember to consume sea sick medicine 1 hour before the trip because the wave is very strong and u might just keep puking rather than watching whale


Good experience and worth to go! The arrangement is good.


Pick up service is good for tourists staying in Naha. Clear instruction to the pick up point through email one day before the tour. Good communication throughout the whole trip. Safety lifeguard vests and airsick bags are provided on the boat. Overall it is a very good experience to have seen some whales.


It's very funny and can see the whale. We enjoy our trip.
