About Nakano-shima beach

Free Time while your Taiken Scuba Diving

The sea creatures in nature are always hungry. Because they are living thing, they will search for a lover. If their body is dirty, they will have another fish clean them. A fish that raises seaweed they can eat themselves. The Taiken (experience) scuba diving at the Irabu-jima Marine Center allows for you to take free time and you can observe the fish in their natural habitat.

Full Face Mask is Original Equipped

 

We have a full face mask that is gaining popularity as standard equipment. Almost all customers used it in 2018 because of the sense of security they have when the mask covers the entire face, it gives you the ability to talk and it's easy to do ear extractions..

 

"What should I do if the water enters the mask?" "What should I do if the regulator goes out of the mouth?" If you use a full face mask you do not need such worry. Let's just think about enjoying underwater.

The risk of discover scuba diving

You can not participate in the flight boarding day.
Diving at the boarding day will increase the risk of developing decompression disorder, even for Taiken (experience) diving with shallow water depth.


Health

Unlike on land, underwater is difficult to detect symptoms caused by sickness or injury, as well as response after discovery. Also, there is not enough research on how special environments such as underwater will affect injuries and diseases. There is no risk that the respiratory apparatus will come out of the mouth when using a full face mask, but after confirming the medical issues, please attend the tour with full attention to health.


Skills

For customers who wish to have general equipment, participate in the tour after practicing "mask clear" and "regulator clear". Be warned, something will happen and let's hurry, sometimes you can not apply the practiced skills. The important key to preventing panic is "to repeat practice" and "to move slowly". For a user who get nervous easily, please use a full face mask whose breathing apparatus can not come off the mouth.
