Turtle Snorkeling Tour

Irabujima Marine Center

Features of Turtle snorkeling

Fun to found

The venue for the tour at Shigira beach, is the habitat for sea turtles on the western sand. There are no promises to see them can be found because they are wild the sea turtle, so searching for sea turtles with the instructor has become a big pleasure for this tour.

Fun to discover

People who do not know anything about sea turtles and those who meet sea turtles with knowledge about sea turtles will have a different way of enjoying them. It is really fun to discover by yourself, "This child is ◯◯ so it is a green turtle." Even after going up from the ocean, it was awesome with sea turtle talks with friends and family.

The IMC the sea turtle tour, begins after receiving instructor will tell you about them.

Fun to corals and sea creatures

The east side of Shigira Beach, the venue for the tour, is an oasis of coral reefs and fishes like Miyakojima's original sea. After searching for a sea turtle, I will go out to observe coral reef creatures. Fish are living comfortably, so let us observe relaxedly

Happy family price

There is a child charge setting that is happy to participate in the family. 


Elementary school student: half price

※ Please participate with parents. Parents should not leave their children.

Towel and cold drink

One bath towel and drink are prepared for one person. We also have fresh water to off the body's salt.

Friendly and bright staffs

The staff who likes the aquarium and has been growing up as a diver since she was high school student, the staff of a naive mastery nurse and the staff of the Irabujima Marine Center are all well-energetic and bright staff. An enjoyable tour will be more fun. Of course, all PADI instructors.
