Great Whale Watching at Kerama Islands and Zamami Island

About the Activity

We will guide you aboard our own ship. Cruising while looking at the beautiful scenery around Zamami Island until you arrive at the point! You can deepen your knowledge about whales! It's good to relax in preparation for watching! Once you arrive at the point, a thrilling time begins where you don't know where it will appear from 360 degrees. First, let's discover the whale's burou (water vapor that appears on the water)! After that, the whales will show you various actions! You may be able to pass under the ship or appear right next to the ship and get sprayed with water! You can have a moving experience that you can't get anywhere else. You can also combine it with an optional kayak or snorkel tour, so you can spend the whole day on Zamami Island. *Minimum number of participants is 3. Please contact us if up to 2 people are participating.
