Review / word-of-mouth experience

Hirizo beach is unfortunate because of the high waves ...
I was looking forward to snorkeling at Hirizo Beach, but it was suddenly canceled due to the influence of high waves ... However, I was asked to propose an alternative snorkeling in a relatively calm place, and I could do a lot of snorkeling at Kujuppama and Ebisu Island (Is it?) I did! The elementary school children were also very satisfied, and the guide on the day taught them to give priority to seeing lobster babies and various fish. I went back to lunch for lunch, but it was delicious because I could choose from fried chicken, hamburger steak, yakiniku, and pork cutlet lunch. I would like to ask Hirizo Beach when I revenge next year. Thank you very much.

Review / word-of-mouth experience

It was a great experience
I wanted to experience Hirizo Beach and wanted to do snorkeling, but I discovered and applied for experience diving at Hirizo Beach. It was a long time since I was diving a long time ago. The result was a great experience. The transparency was decent I was surprised at the kind of fish and the depth of the fish shadow that I have never experienced before The instructor in charge is a young person, but there is a sense of security It feels friendly and nice, and while watching my atmosphere, please guide me to places that I can not go by experience diving. It was a very satisfying time. In addition, the dive heat is likely to reignite. I'm really thankful to you.
