What To Expect

Check an item off your bucket list when you get up close and personal with these gentle giants of the sea! Hop on a boat from the shores of Yomitan and be transported to the location of the whale sharks, where you can marvel at their magnificence from a distance when you choose to snorkel or dive. If you’re a licensed diver, you could even go a little closer and swim right alongside them! There’s nothing to fear - whale sharks may look intimidating, but are naturally good natured beings. Whether you’re 6 years old or 60, an experience like this should definitely not be missed when you're in Okinawa.

    The fun dive is awesome, but i aspect the whale sharks is more bigger, but is was a good experience to swim with whale shark
  • Jonathan 2 Dec 2017
    Epic experience swimming with whale sharks. Pick up on time and coach was very friendly. The time spent on actual snorkelling would be a bit longer though.
  • Torgeir 29 Oct 2017
    Nice place and nice coach. Wonderful day and good experience for diving.
  • Wing Sze 18 Oct 2017
    Pick up was on time. My coach is very friendly. Overall a good trip. Water is clear.
  • CHEN-EN 22 May 2018
    The coaches are all very good. At that time, there were Taiwanese student coaches who were very talkative! Worth watching whale sharks!

    Very good experience, but the time to see the whale shark is not long. The building is a little expensive but the whole is ok...

    It is very interesting experience that the whale shark is really cool in front of him. However, people who want to play remember to eat seasickness medicine before they want to dive.

    There are instructors who can speak Chinese and have patience. When diving, they will continue to confirm the situation and feel full of confidence. However, the time for seeing the whale sharks can be longer. (The diver feeds the fish whale shark and walks QQ.)

    If you are looking for whale sharks, this must be the best option. If you want to see tropical fish, you are advised to choose another location. The snorkeling instructors have Chinese-speaking staff. The coaches are very kind.
