Feather of the 17end snorkeling tour

Shimoji-jima Airport of 17end Snorkeling

We will go out a white coral reef spreading at the northern edge of the airport. An induction light that protrude long in the coral reef, the white of the coral reef, the deep blue of the sea makes spectacular scene! It's about 50 minutes boat ride from Miyako-jima island.

Check about 17end.

Corals and Water Beauty

The 17 end at the beach is beautiful where the coral is vivd in a surprisingly beautiful spread of scenery. However, the transparency is high in the vicinity to where you can not swim from the beach. Feel at ease as you're "Finding Nemo" and seeing the Rays as you enjoy snorkeling.

4, Arriving at 17end

The quiet and spacious ocean with 17end is a quiet area surrounded by coral reefs. There is only one entrance that can enter the boat on the west side, so there are times when you can put in and depart from the sea state. It is difficult to go there in winter season.

Upon entering the water, we will practice snorkeling one-by-one, using the  float. IF you already know how to snorkel, I'll please give beginning snorkelers time to practice as you snorkel within the area.

7, Snorkeling!

Now, let’s  go snorkeling. Look for places the staff named “Morimori Corals" and places where an anemone fish is hidden. It is also possible for the flying fish to swim underwater. If you feel tired, during your time snorkeling, you can return to the boat and rest. Let's have fun!

8, Time To Finish

After enjoying your time snorkeling, you are ready to go back to the boat, clean off the salt from your body with fresh water, get drinks and return home.
