Calm and atmospheric night dive

If you want to queue for entering the ocean and queue again for entering the cave, this is THE place. If not, come here before 8 am, after 6 pm, or skip.

I am sure it will be much more prettier place with less people. It is over-crowded and you can easily crush into other people. The cave is supposed to look silence and clear but the crowd destroyed it. Yet for people who wants to try cave diving it still worth since not many caves are in such shallow water for... More

This place is a true rip off disaster. It is so crowded as to make it unenjoyable. The alleged cave is wall to wall tourists, 99% who can't swim and are close to drowning. Our guides were good but forced us to wear wetsuits and life jackets in 86 degree water. We are very good swimmers so this was a... More

I wasnt sure whether the diving in the blue cave was going to be worth it. but due to the positive reviews we thought why not. If youre planning on diving in naha, really dont bother with the blue cave. Masses of people flood here looking to get that one picture with the natural light shining through. the diving a... More

Nao took us to blue cave and it was absolutely amazing. The view of the blue cave was astonishing. I recommend going there.

So, the Blue Cave isn't the biggest or most amazing spot...but it's a unique experience and offers some amazing photo ops. If you can avoid the crowds you'll really enjoy the experience. As my local friends taught me, go early and go off season. There are plenty of hotels and dive companies hauling visitors out and the crowds really diminish... More

The snorkeling around Cape Maeda is better than the Blue Cave experience. The Blue Cave is really a cave with a patch of light that gives a small area within the cave a nice blue glow. If you rent snorkel gear at Cape Maeda, the tour guide will take you to the Blue Cave anyway and you have to line... More

An absolutely blinding reef, abundant in very friendly sealife. Additionally, for those who enjoy bouldering; the inside of the blue cave itself is an excellent wall to climb, with a glistening blue pool as a crash mat. Perfect when snorkelling so you can jump out for a climb. This is the strong warning: go as early as possible, around 7... More
