Join us for dive trips to the outer islands of Okinawa, Southern Kyushu Islands, Thailand, Hawaii, and more.
We conduct diving trips out to Yonaguni Island throughout the year. Yonaguni is located at the most southwestern end of the Ryukyu islands, 125 km from Taiwan. The diving in Yonaguni is simply amazing. One of the main attractions for divers are the underwater ruins that surround the island. Find out more about these underwater structures and more here.
Aguni Island and Tonaki Island are located only one hour and half away from where our boats are parked. In the beginning of summer, around Aguni Island, we see huge schools of big eye trevally, being chased by bigger fish such as GT, sharks, and so on. There will be a good size current that promises you an adventurous dive. Tonaki Island has distinct landscapes that make spectacular dive sites – one of them is called “Blue Hole.” We can easily dive all these sites as a one day trip. Check out our 2009 trips and plan your weekend!
If you have never been to Ishigaki Island, you are in for a treat. The diving is spectacular, homegrown beef and awamori to die for, and thick, untouched rainforests waiting to be explored, and of course the Manta Rays! What else could you ask for? Join us for an unforgettable getaway to this gem of the pacific - Ishigaki-jima.
