Irabujima-Marine Center

Feather of the 17end snorkeling tour

Shimojijima air port of 17end snorkeling

We go out a white coral reef spreading at the northern edge of the airport. An induction light that protrudes long in the coral reef, the white of the coral reef, the deep blue of the sea make a spectacular scenery like sighing out. About 50 minutes by the boat from Miyako island.

Check about 17end.

Corals and water beauty

Although it is a beautiful 17 end at the beach, the transparency is high in the vicinity of the reef where you can not swim from the beach, the coral is vivid and surprisingly beautiful scenery spreads. Meet Nimo and Rays in the spacious ocean while enjoying snorkeling until you feel at ease.
