What to Expect

In the popular winter activity “Whale Watching” of Okinawa in winter, humpback whales whose winter is the season of breeding activities move their base to Okinawa where it is warm and quiet, so it is often observed by people.

Overwhelming presence of giant creatures! There is no doubt that excitement will increase with the great power of humpback whales that can be seen just by going to a nearby spot on the ship! Come on! Let's tremble with joy! Does the probability of discovery differ depending on the time of day?
