Okinawa Main Island South

Whale watching

Whale Watching Excursion is an unstoppable offshore activity during the winter season in Okinawa from January until the end of March.

Tourists and locals who keep on coming back to see the whales have an uplifting experience which makes them feel inspired and increase their longevity everytime the whales appear just next to the boat. Everyone's excitement just can't be contained and see themselves screaming with satisfaction!

We have been organizing whale watching trip since 2005. And each year our team has spotted and successfully recorded 99% of whale appearances. With the use of an advanced equipment like sonar and radar by our naturalist on board, we offer you a unique experience that is worth reminiscing.
