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.
