Okinawan Coral Reef

Okinawan Coral Reef

The holiday season is here and the dives just keep getting better. As the waters cool around Okinawa larger sea life starts to move into the area. As January comes around we will be seeing the yearly migration of humpback whales in the Keramas and schools of hammerheads will be be visiting Yonaguni. Reef Encounters is offering you the experience of a lifetime, putting you in the water with these magnificent creatures. Starting in January we will be running weekly trips to dive and snorkel with the gentle giants in the Kerama islands. While the whales are frolicking in the waters of the Keramas, schools of hammerhead sharks numbering in the hundreds will be cruising the dive sites of Yonaguni islands. Reef Encounters will be joining the hammerheads with tours in January (26th-29th), February (15th-19th) and March (8th-11th).

Reef Encounters will also be adding some new classes to the training schedule also this December. Reef Encounters will be offering sidemount training for both recreational divers and technical training. As the only Dive Rite certified dealer on island we offer the full line of Nomad sidemount rigs for you to dive with. We will also be starting our new diver development training programs with a technical program and a recreational instructor development program. Both of these programs are designed to take the new diver and using an intense training program lead to certification as a Trimix diver or as a recreational scuba instructor.
