I really enjoyed the full-day snorkeling experience in the Kerema Islands. The staff was very helpful, friendly, and professional. The English-speaking guide did very well with her English. She did an excellent job explaining the expectations, schedule, procedures, and area. She kept us all together as a group and even though I was a solo English-only speaker I felt very included. She helped to point out a beautiful swimming sea turtle. We saw so many amazing fish, sea snakes, coral, and a turtle. The water was so clear and blue. It was absolutely fantastic! The neoprene wet suits were so helpful to keep us afloat and warm. The boat driver and the anchorman did a great job as well. Everyone worked great together to make it an awesome experience. I highly recommend this for those coming to Okinawa.

This was such an incredibly insightful, unique experience of Osaka. I would particularly recommend this for well travelled people who understand that there other layers to every city. Andy is informative, engaging and is a natural story teller. His humor & wit add to this well rounded tour. I recommend going to the dinner after as we continued the fun with delicious food. Thank you

Tomoko san was great. She guided us through the fish market knowledgeably and efficiently. she knew immediately what our group required and was very patient and amiable.

Seeing is believing, but I realized that the look after seeing is terrific, deep and deep. Thank you for your detailed explanation.

とても優しいです。 当日午前中時間があまりなくてギリギリでパラセリングに参加したが担当者のお陰様で12:05分の飛行機を余裕に間に合いました。荷物も有料ロッカーがありましたが担当者の車の中に預かってもらいました。 次回もここに参加したいです。
