This tour comprises three different and unique snorkeling adventures.

The trip commences with a ferry ride to Uehara port on Iriomote, where you will be met by our guide (from Duck Tours). You will then be taken to their offices to prepare for the trip. You will then be transported to the nearby port to take a boat to Barasu Island, a small island off Iriomote formed entirely of dead coral. The snorkeling here is unforgettable, with teeming wildlife: colorful subtropical fish, sea urchins, clams and the occasional sea turtle.

We then move on to another snorkeling spot close to Hatoma Island. After completing the snorkeling at this site we head to Hatoma Port for a barbecue lunch. On Hatoma, you will have an hour, to an hour and a half, to relax or explore the island before returning to the boat for our last snorkeling venture.

The guides will select the best suitable spot for this final snorkel adventure, depending on the conditions on the day, tides, and what has been spotted recently. After snorkeling in these corals we head back to Iriomote, where you can shower at the Duck Tours’ facilities, before returning to Ishigaki.

An unforgettable snorkeling adventure.
