Frequently Asked Questions about Okinawa Snorkeling (Snorkeling)

Q What is snorkeling (snorkeling)?

A Snorkeling is a marine activity where you can look underwater with underwater glasses and a snorkel (a tube that you can breathe through your mouth). If you wear a life jacket, you can easily float it, so even people who are not confident in swimming can enjoy it. If you attach fins (flippers), you can easily proceed even with light fluttering feet. It is becoming more popular because it is easier to participate than diving.

Q What are the popular snorkeling spots on the main island of Okinawa?

A "Blue Cave" in Cape Maeda, Onna Village, which is easily accessible from Naha Airport, is a recommended spot where even beginners can easily experience snorkeling. Sakimotobu Green Space Park in northern Okinawa is called "Gorilla Chop" because a large block of rock looks like a gorilla. Here you can enjoy not only snorkeling but also watching the sunset.

Q What are the popular snorkeling spots on the remote islands of Okinawa?

A The real thrill of Miyakojima snorkeling is that you can get close to wild sea turtles up to a few centimeters and swim with them. The encounter rate is said to be close to 99%. For those who want to experience not only snorkeling but also other activities, Ishigaki Island "Blue Cave" is recommended. There are plenty of set plans with other activities such as kayaking.

Q Can children participate in snorkeling?

A There are tours that even children can participate in, such as using a float. As for equipment for children, the ages available vary depending on the shop, so be sure to check when making a reservation. If you are traveling with children, we recommend the "Boat Entry Plan" to go to the diving spot by boat. You can enjoy snorkeling while suppressing the exhaustion of physical strength.
