Description

Join us for an amazing half-day diving experience at Kabira on Ishigaki Island — famed for the outstanding clarity of its waters. For any first-time divers, we’ll start with practice in the shallows. You’ll get accustomed to diving, while still being able to stand up at any time. Then on your first ocean dive, we’ll practice basic diving skills in the shallows of the coral reefs. You will learn the self-control to dive beneath the waves, and how to breathe, balance, and swim properly under the sea. Once you have mastered these skills, we will go to Ishigaki’s famous Manta Point for your second dive (if conditions are not suitable, we will dive at another coral reef). This course is ideal for those who have some diving experience and want to see manta rays at Ishigaki Island. We hope you’ll visit us and enjoy the magnificence of Ishigaki diving to the fullest.
