I booked a diving and snorkel tour combo. No experience necessary for the diving, which was done at Cape Maeda in the area around blue cave. For the snorkel portion, we walked along the rock line into the cave and got in the water. Honestly, it's pretty small. It was a short swim to the entrance of the cave where... More

To see Blue Cave, be sure to book a boat. As experienced snorkelers, we had our own gear and thought we'd snorkel from Cape Maeda. When we arrived at the parking lot, the intercom clearly said that snorkeling was not possible and the steps down to Blue Cave were closed. So we called and book a tour with Aruguide who... More

The instructor could speak flute English, Korean, Putonghua and Japanese, therefore he gave us clear instructions before snorkeling. And he was so nice to recommend the local restaurants and places to go. You could... More

This is definitely a very special place to visit, and naturally the place attract lots of people. You need to queue and wait for your turn to enter the cave. Snorkeling is impossible as there are too many people inside the cave. The snorkeling equipments are only props for photo to be honest. Having said that you can snorkel outside... More

Blue cave is a very nice place to do diving. You can also do snorkel and kayak. It is very safe! Highly recommended for all people, including families with children and grandparents. I recommend to go a weekday, afternoon, since there is less people, I am sure you will enjoy!
