TOP > Whale Watching



Every winter, the humpback whales come to mate in the temperate climate of Okinawa.
The Kerama Islands may be the most famous spot for whale watching around Okinawa, but you can see many whales in the waters off of Motobu as well.
The impressive display of the whales harbors an abundance of fascinations that must be seen to be believed!
The tour package has seasonal restrictions, so we encourage you to go whale watching if you have the chance.


With a morning and an afternoon trip, customers can make the reservation better suited to their own schedule. Takes about 10 minutes from the meeting place to Churaumi Aquarium.
Going out to watch whales and then visit Churaumi Aquarium makes for the optimal sightseeing route.
