What people are saying about Okinawa

I had a wonderful time on the whale watching excursion. The crew was great and made everyone feel safe and comfortable. We did not have a whale jump out of the water or any noteworthy close ups, but we did see a couple whales due to the crew’s string efforts to ensure at least a few sightings. The outfit back at the shop running this excursion was also fantastic. I had some challenges with travel, internet connectivity and communication for this outing. They were patient and very helpful to make sure I made the trip. Definitely go out and enjoy this adventure!!!

They had a English translator who provided us with feedback prior to departing. During the trip he was around if anyone had questions. They took you out to where whales are spotted and after awhile of joy seeing one they moved us to another location. They were awesome in pointing out where to look and moving us closer to see the whales

A lot of people were sea sick and the staff was very helpful and provided all required things that were needed. Make sure to take motion sickness medication prior to going! The day started out rough, but ended up being a very nice day with whale families!

The guides were really nice. As promised we saw some whales. Even the transport from our hotel and back was included.
