Enjoyed year-round by divers from all over the world! In the Mediterranean Sea and even the waters off Thailand and Malaysia, things gets murky in the off-season. Okinawa’s seas, however, stay extremely clear all year. Still another great thing about Okinawa is the unique underwater scenery of each of its islands. And Okinawa offers a ton of interesting things to do outside of diving, so you won’t get bored even if you’re staying for a while. Take the diving resorts of other countries, and you’re talking one week maximum! Okinawa’s waters meet the various preferences of divers from all over the world, and provide as much enjoyment to the solo traveler as to couples or even families!

The various attractions and skilled guides are the charm of Okinawa. Okinawa shows the diverse expressions of the sea through its seasons and the surrounding islands. There is a chance of running in to manta rays or hammerhead sharks, or larger animals like humpback whales or dolphins, not to mention cute younger fish. The water is also crystal clear, and there are are plenty of varieties of terrain and schools of fish. And whatever you might say, the greatest attraction in Okinawa is that there are so many diving services and that you can select the service based on your individual needs. There is no doubt that having so many guides knowledgeable about macro animal photography has increased Okinawa's charm.

The diversity of sea life here is unmatched anywhere in the world.
Okinawa truly offers some of the most diverse diving I have ever experienced, you can go from a beautiful coral reef with macro life for dive one and the second dive be an adrenaline charged drift dive with pelagics on the same day. Okinawa also offers wreck diving and some incredible drift and night diving.
The variety and diversity of the corals and sea life here is unmatched anywhere in the world.
Enjoy Okinawa to your heart‘s content both before and after diving. Learning more about Okinawa beforehand is sure to make your trip more enriching.
