Zamami Island Whale Watching Association (座間味村ホエールウォッチング協会)

4.5

Other Sightseeing Spot

Every year from December through into April, humpback whales and several other species of whales come back to the waters off Zamami Island to breed and raise their young. During this period, whale-watching trips are available to view the whales. *Tours may be cancelled on days when the weather is too bad to see the whales, or when no whales have been reported. *As these trips are very popular, it may not be possible to book a trip for the same day; advance booking is recommended.

もうただただ感激!
会えます…丘から監視員さんがウォッチングしてポイントへ誘導
慣れたものです。クジラも船を怖がりません。座間味に感謝です
Reviewed:2019/02/23 Spontan und trotzdem ein Erfolg
Obwohl das Speedboat am Morgen nicht von Naha nach Zamami übersetzen konnte, kam ich am Nachmittag den Walen sehr nahe und dies ohne Übelkeit.

初めてホエールウォッチングに参加しました。大きなザトウクジラに本当に感動的しました!
大海原で悠々と泳ぐクジラ。運良くジャンプも見られました。
本当に良い体験をさせて頂けました。
ここで見たクジラの姿、一生忘れないと思います。

          Let go of your image of a busy, ordered Japan and replace it with crystal-clear waters, white sand beaches, and relaxing folk music: You've arrived in Okinawa. A world away from the high intensity of Tokyo, Okinawans appear to live a laid-back beach life on this paradisiacal tropical island that lies in the middle of the East China Sea almost 1,000 kilometers south of mainland Japan's most southern tip. Home to a spattering of islands, prepare yourself to discover underwater caves, star-shaped sand, and an island culture sometimes unrecognizable from mainland Japan.
